PENTICTON, BC – Cannery Brewing has announced the release of a latest beer in the Artisan Creations series of art-inspired one-off brands from the brewery.
Darkling Oatmeal Stout is a 5.5% abv stout with the following description:
Poetry and beer go hand in hand. The balance and rhythm in both creates a seamless artistry that rolls over your palate and lingers, waiting to be deciphered. This oatmeal stout balances smooth mouth feel with bittersweet roasted flavours to brighten the blackest of days.
As with previous Artisan Creations releases, the label features “an artistic creation designed to match the artistry of the beer.” In this case, the beer name was inspired by a line from the Lord Byron poem “Darkness”, and the label was created by local artist, designer, professor and Governor General’s Gold Medal award winner Myron Campbell.
Darkling Oatmeal Stout is available now at select stores in British Columbia and Alberta is a limited run of 650 ml bottles. It will also be featured as the rotating “Brewer’s Choice” in the autumn 2015 edition of Cannery Collection sampler pack.
