HAMILTON, ON – Garden Brewers has announced details of the next beer to be released in its Now In Bloom! series of limited edition small-run beers.
Hamilton Honey Harvest IPA is a 5.7% abv and 37 IBU ale brewed using honey from Three Bees Honey Company, an apiary in downtown Hamilton.
In his typically detailed and informative blog post about the new beer, Garden’s Victor North describes it as follows:
You might be inclined to think “Sweet” when you hear “Honey IPA” but it is in fact the opposite! You know, I think that many people describe rather dry IPAs as sweet because the juicy, fruity flavours of the hops can create an impression of sweetness, which may certainly be the case with our HHH IPA as well. In fact, that impression will likely be enhanced by our use of BruMalt, or “Honey Malt”, which creates a flavour reminiscent of Honey! This IPA will likely create a sense of sweetness for you, but I can promise you that it will not be cloying or syrupy. I think that you will find the HHH to be dry, juicy and refreshing!
Casks of Hamilton Honey Harvest IPA will be tapped this Friday October 9th at Brü in Oakville, and next Thursday October 15th at Lansdowne Brewery in Toronto, and kegs will be delivered soon to select bars and restaurants in Hamilton. See the blog post for further details.
