CALGARY, AB – Big Rock Brewery has announced the 3rd annual return of popular autumn seasonal as the latest installment in the Alchemist Edition series of limited edition one-off beers.
Anthea Wet Hop Ale is 6% abv fresh hop pale ale that is described as follows:
Anthea is made with fresh Cascade hops from Washington’s Yakima Valley and we’re excited to report that this year’s hop harvest is better than ever. These aromatic cones were picked from the vine, packed on dry ice, jetted to Calgary and put into our brew kettle in less than 24 hours. The result? Brewmaster Paul Gautreau put it best by saying, “Anthea is an aroma and mouthful of hops that will transport you to the fields of Yakima. Straight from the vine, you will never find a fresher flavour than what you get in this Wet Hop Ale.”
The brewery also notes that in order to keep this year’s release “as natural as possible,” it was left unfiltered, giving the beer a fuller flavour and slight haziness.
Anthea Wet Hop Ale has been released today in a limited run of 5000 650 ml bottles that will be available at select liquor stores in Alberta and BC while supplies last.
