Category 12 Releases ZRA 2 and Barrelholder Golden Strong 2017

VICTORIA, BC – Category 12 Brewing has announced the release of a pair of limited edition beers.

ZRA 2 – a follow-up to last year’s Zombie Repellant Ale – is an “Anti-Pumpkin Beer” described as follows:

Blood red and distinctly Belgian, our Zombie Repellant Ale is the perfect addition to one’s seasonal preparatory arsenal. Gentle spiciness combines with a well-balanced maltiness, perfect for thoughtful consumption while contemplating escape routes through the pumpkin-beer loving masses.

Barrelholder Golden Strong 2017 is a special edition of C12’s Belgian Golden Strong Ale that has been aged for a year in first-use red wine barrels from Muse Winery. It has the following notes:

This limited release Belgian Golden Strong Ale is crafted to be bright and crisp with a medium body. Lightly fruity and spicy, the ageing in red wine barrels has imparted delicate toasted oak and caramel notes. The barrel ageing process has added sweet vanilla overtones, depth and complexity to an already delicious 11.6% ABV beer.

Both beers are available now at the brewery, with distribution to select private liquor stores starting next week.
