YELLOWHEAD COUNTY, AB – Bench Creek Brewing has launch of the Villainous Series, a monthly series of limited edition canned small batch beers that are named after “70s – 90s infamous, and some not-so-well known character villains.”
Primarily featuring the return of “favourite cask, one-off, and limited recipes to give them a proper moment to shine,” the series will be kicking off today (October 23rd) with Justice Smoked Rye Porter. Named after Buford T. Justice from Smokey and the Bandit, its described as follows:
You can’t escape the long arm of the law, especially when you witness its seedy underbelly. All outward appearances point to a classic robust porter. However, it’s seething with complex rye and beechwood smoked malt additions that’ll have ya shaking in yer boots. Rich chocolate and espresso notes meld incredibly well with the earthy and spicy character of rye that negotiates a good cop/bad cop kind of shakedown. There’s also a lingering background of smooth, almost savoury smokiness providing a unique depth of flavour. Just try and talk your way out of it. What we have here is total disrespect for the law!
