CALGARY, AB – Rapid Ascent Brew Co. has announced that its flagship beer is now available at retail outlets.
Originally launched earlier this year as Summit Brewing before rebranding due to potential confusion with the American brewery of the same name, Rapid Ascent has been founded by Troy Kamphuis-Finnigan, who is currently having beer contract brewed to build brand awareness before opening a bricks-and-mortar operation.
Rapid Ascent’s first brand is Finnigan’s Irish Pale Ale, which Kamphuis-Finnigan describes as follows:
I import a lot and spend a lot of time in Ireland, touring microbreweries around there. I like the American Pale Ale style, but I also like the nuances in Irish beer – they are drier on palate. I wanted the hop aromatics, but not the bitterness. I also wanted a dry, sharp mouthfeel.
Finnigan’s Irish Pale Ale is available in six packs of 355 ml cans at select liquor stores in the Alberta. It also remains available on draught at better beer bars in the province.
