Red Racer Lucky Dog Kumquat Wheat Ale (5.6% abv) was brewed at Central City during a visit by Redpoint brewmaster Spencer Jemelka, and is described by Central City brewmaster Gary Lohin as follows:
We approached our collaboration with Spencer and Redpoint Brewing with completely open minds and it was great fun. We wanted to create something innovative with an element of Chinese tradition. Spencer suggested using kumquats since eating the fruit is a Chinese New Year tradition and we went with it. The sweet citrus lends itself perfectly to a nicely balanced wheat beer like this one.
Red Racer Lucky Dog is available now at select beer retailers in British Columbia and Alberta while supplies last.
