STRATHROY-CARADOC, ON – Ontario beer news website Mom ‘n Hops reports that Strathroy Brewing is now open and serving customers in the small municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc, near London in southwestern Ontario.
Founded by Alex Martin in a former flour mill at 62 Albert St., the brewery has launched with a single flagship brand – 1812 Independence Pale Ale – a 5.5% abv unfiltered ale that is described as follows:
Our Pale Ale is crafted with an exquisite blend of the finest hops, non-GMO malts, triple filtered water and specialty yeasts. It’s unfiltered and unpasteurized to preserve delicate flavours and aromas, and we use no preservatives other than hops. This bottle conditioned beer derives its character from the Champagne style of natural fermentation, carbonation and maturation. This traditional method more closely resembles the taste and freshness of pouring straight from the cellarmaster’s cask.
Tasting notes for the beer mention it having “caramel notes from the roasted malt,” “fruitness and spicy banana-clove finish from the English and Belgian yeasts,” and a “floral aroma and lemon-lime zest from the hops.”
1812 Independence Pale Ale is available now in 341 ml bottles at the Strathroy Brewing retail store, and at select licensed establishments in the surrounding area.
