LACOMBE, AB – Blindman Brewing has announced details of a new collaborative beer created with breweries from two neighbouring provinces, as well as its first ever barley wine.
Nelson River Collab: Herbed & Hopped Kettle Sour (5.6% abv) is a collaboration between Blindman, Nokomis Craft Ales of Nokomis, Saskatchewan, and Barn Hammer Brewing of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It’s described as follows:
Brewed in Lacombe by all 3 brewers it uses herbs native to our prairies—juniper and rose hips. Combined with the citrus and pine of the Chinook hops it offers a new dimension to a sour beer base. Named after the Nelson River—the waterway that every drop of rain or snowmelt from our 3 breweries back yards up in—it was more than anything an excuse to hang out and brew good beer with good people.
Perepllut Barley Wine (9.5% abv) has the following notes:
Named after the ancient Slavic god of water, soil and the fertility of the earth, this beer of abundance is made with a mélange of what Alberta does best—barley, wheat, oats and rye. Expect a deep ruby beer with toffee, port and caramel notes and a silky finish.
Both beers will be available in 355 ml cans at Blindman and select locations throughout Alberta. Nelson River Collab will also be available soon in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
