SHELBURNE, NS – Boxing Rock Brewing has announced the return of a seasonal Bière de Garde, a style that is rarely seen in Atlantic Canada.
La Rive du Sud Bière de Garde is a 7.5% abv French farmhouse-style ale that Boxing Rock originally released in the spring of 2014. Now back with a slightly modified recipe, it’s described as follows:
Made with simple base malts and dark caramelized sugar this simple combination of ingredients yields an ale of noteworthy complexity. With notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, as well as tangerine, biscuit, and a chewy malt base that is at once mouth filling and refreshing. We lagered (well, guarded, actually) this ale for weeks until it was perfect. It’s remarkably smooth on the palate and although it has a medium-dry finish, it has a lingering pleasant aftertaste that can only be described as “French”.
Boxing Rock La Rive du Sud is available at the brewery in 650 ml bottles and 1 litre growlers, and on tap at select bars and pubs, while supplies last.
