The Exchange + Golden Ale – the plus sign being a reference to one of the buttons on a telephone keypad, a naming convention used for all of the brewery’s core brands – is an 8% abv ale with the following description:
This craft beer is a Belgian Strong Golden Ale, fermented with the brewery’s house Belgian Ale yeast and aged in French oak barrels from Pearl Morissette Winery, with brettanomyces, for three months. Dry and easy drinking despite its complexity, the + Golden Ale blends together notes of pineapple, coconut and vanilla, complemented with layers of funk and subtle spices of pepper and clove.
The Exchange + Golden Ale is available at select LCBO stores, retailing for $13.50 per 750 ml bottle. It will also continue to be sold at the brewery retail store in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
