SURREY, BC – Central City Brewers + Distillers has announced the release of the third beer in its ongoing Sour Series, as well as a holiday gift pack featuring two versions of a multi-award winning seasonal favourite.
Sour Framboise III is a 9.5% abv Belgian-style sour red ale infused with local raspberries and described as follows:
Aged for more than two years in a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and French oak Foeders. Long maturation on the berries, combined with the sour culture mix of Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus produces a very complex beer with tart raspberry notes up front, and a dry finish with notes of grass and hay.
Also out now is the Thor’s Hammer Gift Pack, featuring 650 ml bottles of the regular and bourbon barrel aged versions of the 2014 vintage of Thor’s Hammer Barley Wine – the first a Gold medal winner at the 2016 BC Beer Awards, and the latter a Bronze winner.
Both releases will be available at select liquor retailers in BC, Alberta, and Manitoba while quantities last.
