NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ON – The Exchange Brewery has announced the release of a limited edition beer that has been almost three years in the making.
Spontaneous Ale (6.8% abv, 27 IBU) is a sour ale that was barrel-aged for two years and bottle-conditioned for 11 months before release. It’s described as follows:
Unique in Ontario, our Spontaneous Ale was brewed with traditional turbid mashing techniques followed by an extended boil of noble aged hops. This barrel-fermented ale was inoculated with wild yeast cultures harvested from fruit skins growing in Niagara and using cultures from our own ‘mini-coolship’ experiments – illustrated by the air symbol on the bottle’s label.
Spontaneous Ale will be available in a limited run of 330 ml bottles exclusively at The Exchange Brewery this Saturday September 8th at 10:00 AM. Less than 1000 bottles will be available, with 100 being sold in a package with a branded flute glass for $28, and the remaining bottles retailing for $16, while supplies last.
