The Small Batch Innovations collection includes “two Heritage Series beers, inspired by recipes pulled from Moosehead’s archives, and three Canadian Home Grown Series beers that pay tribute to Moosehead’s Canadian heritage.”
From the Heritage Series comes London Stout (5.5% abv, 40 IBU), a “creamy and full-bodied” beer based on an export stout first brewed in 1929; and Ten Penny Stock Ale (5.2% ABV, 25 IBU), a classic “light, well-balanced amber ale” that debuted in 1934.
Canadian Home Grown Series offerings include Sugar Bush Black Lager (5.5% abv, 25 IBU), featuring “notes of coffee and chocolate infused with pure Quebec maple syrup”; Stone Fruit White IPA (6.2% abv, 40 IBU), a “Belgian witbier brewed in the IPA style [with] the addition of apricots sourced from British Columbia”; and Mountain Spruce Golden Ale (4.5% abv, 20 IBU), in which “fresh spruce tips gathered in New Brunswick are brewed with piney aromatic hops.”
The five Moosehead Small Batch Innovations beers are rolling out now to select retailers, bars, and restaurants accross Canada. For information on availability in each province and other details, see the full announcement.
