FREDERICTON, NB – Grimross Brewing has announced the release of what may be the first 100% Brettanomyces-fermented beer to be commercially brewed in Atlantic Canada.
Chantelope was brewed with a similar malt bill – Pilsner, Rye and Wheat – to the brewery’s Cheval D’Or Saison, and Amarillo, Tettnang and Saaz hops.
The beer was then fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellencis yeast, resulting in a 6.7% abv and 20 IBU Belgian-style ale described as being “well balanced and refreshing”, and like “a rustic Saison, with slight tart lemon in the finish and low hopiness.”
Grimross Chantelope is on sale now in bottles at the Picaroons Brewtique in Fredericton, and will be available on draught at Brewbakers & The King Street Alehouse in Fredericton and Tide and Boar in Moncton.
