TORONTO, ON – Bandit Brewery has announced the release of the first beer in its Fall/Winter seasonal lineup.
Metamorphoses (10.2% abv) is an Imperial Rye Ale brewed with rye and smoked malts and barrel-aged for three months before being bottled. It’s described as follows:
Our first (and only) experience brewing a Rye beer was with the Roggen, a special release for Bandit Oktoberfest 2016; a beer that proved to be a hit with our regulars due to its “easy-drinking” qualities and its ability to pair nicely with a variety of foods. This new Imperial Rye Ale shares a similar base with the Roggen but has a healthy addition of beechwood and peat smoked malts, which gives this beer an extra punch. This new beer has a more complex caramel, molasses, and barrel character from its time aging in two French oak wine barrels.
Metamorphoses is available starting today (November 17th) exclusively in the Bandit bottle shop. For more details, see the full announcement.
