VANCOUVER, BC – R & B Brewing has announced details of a new series of limited edition seasonal beers that will be launching next week.
The first instalment in the Mount Pleasant Series – named after the East Vancouver neighbourhood that R & B is located in – will be Roggenbier Rye Ale, a 5% abv ale described as follows:
A modern recreation of a historical and traditional German rye beer brewed in the period before the Reinheitsgebot. The addition of rye imparts a spicy character to this deep copper coloured beer, while fermentation using a traditional german weissbier yeast in our unique horizontal tanks, promotes an aroma of earth, spicy clove and banana.
Mount Pleasant Roggenbier will be available in a limited run of 650 ml bottles, as well as in 20 and 50 litre kegs, while supplies last.
