TORONTO, ON – Creemore Springs Brewery has announced the release the week of a limited edition beer to mark the 20th anniversary of the Creemore Nature Preserve.
Overseen by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), the Preserve is an area of more than 200 acres that was given to the NCC in 1996 by Don and Mary Mingay. It is also the source of the spring water used in Creemore Springs beers, and which gave the brewery its name.
To mark the anniversary of the Preserve, brewer Andrew Bartle at the Creemore Springs owned Batch brewpub in Toronto has created a beer inspired by a visit to made to the area last September. As Bartle notes in a news release, “we took a walk through, found a lot of berries and a lot of wild ginger and we thought this would be a really interesting mix, a bit of inspired fun.”
The resulting beer is Raspberry Ginger Saison, a 5.7% abv and 23 IBU beer described as having a “deep pink hue with a tart punch of raspberries, lemon zest, notes of honey and a soft hint of ginger.”
Raspberry Ginger Saison will be released on Friday January 27th at Batch, where it will be available on tap and in 625 ml bottles while supplies last.
