Townsite Releases Lil’ Red Flanders Sour Ale


POWELL RIVER, BCTownsite Brewing has announced the release of a new limited edition beer that is the first sour ale to be offered by the brewery.

Lil’ Red is a Flanders red ale created by brewmaster Cédric Dauchot after much “asking, pleading & begging” from fellow Townsite employee Michelle Zutz.

The resulting 6% abv sour ale is briefly described as follows:

Cédric worked hard on this one, bringing a blanket and some DVDs to the brewery to keep a round-the-clock eye on the lowering mash pH. This beer had lactobacillus added to it before having the house yeast added on top. It has powerful Pear & Strawberry notes on the nose with a tangy zip of sourness.

Townsite Lil’ Red is available now in 650 ml bottles at the Townsite retail store and in select private liquor stores in British Columbia.
