HAMILTON, ON – Grain & Grit Beer Co. has announced details of two new beers that are being released this week.
Miles Away Sour Ale (5% abv, 19 IBU) was brewed with with passion fruit & guava, and is described as follows:
Brewed with boat loads of passion fruit & guava, Miles Away will whisk you off to your favourite tropical locale. Guava is the star of the show, with lots of tangy tropical fruit on the nose and in the mouth. Backed by an earthy grain profile and tartness from the kettle souring process.
Chasing Summer Oat Ale (5.8% abv, 14 IBU) features raspberry & cacao, and has the following notes:
If you enjoyed our Spring Fever Oat Ale, this one is for you! We used the same recipe, but we swapped out the hibiscus for raspberries. We brewed Chasing Summer with 160 pounds of raspberry and 33 pounds of cacao nibs, which combine to create a unique, slightly tart, sweet & bitter chocolate flavour with a bubble gum, raspberry & floral aroma. We used 30% oats in the malt bill to achieve a soft, creamy mouth feel.
Both will both be available at the brewery tomorrow (Friday August 10th) in cans and on tap, with launch event running from 4:00 to 9:00 PM featuring pizza from Crosta Catering, and live music by Chrys & Momo starting at 7:00 PM. See the Facebook event listing for more details.
