SURREY, BC – Russell Brewing has announced details of a new limited edition beer to mark its 19th anniversary, as well as a notable expansion to its distribution in Alberta.
Set for release later this week is IP G’Day!, a variation on Russell’s IP’eh! brewed using Australian hops and described as follows:
One of Russell team’s passionate and creative brewers, Scott Bohanna-Martin, has decided to pay homage to his down-under roots of the former penal colony we call Australia, by adding Galaxy, Ella and Topaz hops that come from the giant island. Using the award winning IP’eh! recipe, with a twist, these hops will bring fruity peach and passion fruit flavours. Same as Russell IP’eh!, this brew is at 6.5% abv and 53 IBU.
Russell IP G’Day will be available in a limited run of 650 ml bottles at liquor stores throughout British Columbia and Alberta.
The Alberta release of this beer corresponds with Russell’s push to greatly expand its presence in that province. A new territory manager has been hired for the region, and the brewery intends to release all year-round, seasonal and limited edition brands to Alberta liquor stores and licensees going forward.
