HALIFAX, NS – Three Halifax breweries have come together to brew a beer especially for the 2018 edition of the Halifax Pop Explosion music festival and conference.
Good Robot Brewing recently welcomed guest brewers from Garrison Brewing and the Halifax location of Gahan House into the brewhouse to create Lizard Queen (4.5% abv, 25 IBU), which is described as follows:
Lizard Queen was brewed using flaked wheat, oats and barley along with good ol’ 2-row for a solid ale malt presence with enhanced mouthfeel. Hopped with some very big modern varieties, Simcoe, El Dorado, and an especially large dose of Mosaic, expect it to have a heavy tropical fruit presence and be danker than the air outside the Seahorse.
Lizard Queen will be launched at Good Robot on Thursday October 4th. Halifax Pop Explosion will be taking place October 17th to 20th at venues throughout the city.
