Railway City Releasing 2016 Hoptoberfest This Week


ST. THOMAS, ONRailway City Brewing has announced that this year’s edition of its annual harvest ale will be released later this week.

The 2016 vintage of Railway City Hoptoberfest is a Vienna Lager made with 35 lbs of fresh Cascade hops from two local farms. It has the following tasting notes:

Hoptoberfest enters the glass in an autumn orange hue. Caramelized sugar aromas from malts and a hint of cinnamon spice from freshly-picked hops fill the nose. This medium-bodied brew has a crisp and light hop spice, sweet malt profile, and softly lingering hop flavour on the tongue, making it a perfectly balanced beer for fall.

Hoptoberfest 2016 will be officially released on Thursday October 6th with a launch party at the brewery starting at 7:00 PM. It will be available in 650 ml bottles at the Railway City retail store and on tap at select local licensees while supplies last.
