SURREY, BC – Central City Brewers + Distillers is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the opening of its original brewpub this year, and the occasion is being marked with a limited edition release that brings together both the brewing and distilling sides of its business.
Lohin McKinnon Aged Imperial Porter (10.8% abv) is described as follows:
As a way to pay homage to where we’ve come from and also look to the future, we decided to bring back our imperial porter to celebrate Central City’s 15 year anniversary. Making it extra special this year is our ability to age the porter in oak barrels that previously matured our award winning Lohin McKinnon Single Malt Whisky.
This new Anniversary Porter exudes aromas of roasted malts and bakers chocolate while offering intense flavours of vanilla, oak, chocolate, dark fruit, and whisky. The rich and robust flavours of this beer are complimented by a silky smooth body that makes this strong beer deceptively easy to drink.
Lohin McKinnon Aged Imperial Porter is on tap now at both Central City brewpubs and other select bars in BC and Alberta, and a limited run of 650 ml bottles are on sale at the brewery store and several private liquor stores in BC while supplies last.
