OTTAWA, ON – Kichesippi Beer has announced the release of a new beer that celebrates a milestone birthday for one of Ottawa’s oldest cultural attractions.
Commissariat Old Stock Ale is a 4.4% abv and 17 IBU ale brewed to mark the 100th anniversary of the Bytown Museum.
“Our inspiration for this beer was a style that we feel would have been enjoyed back in 1917,” says Kichesippi founder Paul Meek. “The Bytown Museum is definitely a gem hidden in plain sight in our city and we hope this beer will help bring some well deserved attention to the museum.”
Commissariat Old Stock Ale is currently available in a limited run at the Kichesippi retail store, and it will also be available at special events at the Museum over the summer. A larger production run will take place in the autumn in conjunction with the Museum’s official birthday in October.
