CALGARY, AB – Big Rock Brewery has announced the return of one of the most unique offerings from its Alchemist Edition series of limited edition one-off beers.
Cuvée Bru is a 6% abv Druivenbier – Flemish for “grape beer” – which is a beer-wine hybrid style that is rarely seen in North America.
This second annual vintage was brewed using three varieties of malt, Hallertau hops, Pinot Gris grapes from Therapy Vineyards, and honey sourced from hives kept at the Big Rock brewery. The resulting beer is described as being a “deep golden yellow,” with “mildly sweet flavours with melon, subtle pear and honey.”
Big Rock Cuvée Bru 2014 has been released in a limited run of corked & caged 750 ml bottles that will be available in select liquor stores in Alberta while supplies last.
