TORONTO, ON – Great Lakes Brewery has announced the launch of a series of bottle conditioned beers that feature a new format and new label artist for the brewery.
The series will be kicking off with bottle conditioned versions of No Chance with Miranda Saision and Raspberry Universe Saision, with the packaging process described as follows by head brewer Mike Lackey:
Post primary fermentation, we take our beer and add priming sugar and fresh yeast. From that tank we fill our cute little bottles. The yeast will eat the sugar over a 6 to 8 week conditioning period and create magic. Our brewers feel that this not only creates a nice sparkling carbonation that explodes on the tongue, but a longer lasting product that consumers can enjoy today or shelve for some time.
The “cute little bottles” mentioned above are 330 ml bottles which sport wrap-around artwork designed by GLB retail staffer Baylee Bonnell.
Both beers are available now exclusively in the GLB retail store. For more details, see the full announcement on the GLB website.
