GRAVENHURST, ON & BURLINGTON, ON – Sawdust City Brewing and Nickel Brook Brewing have announced details of the 6th annual edition of their collaborative beer series commemorating the fact that November 5th is the shared birthday of their respective head brewers.
Developed and brewed by Sam Corbeil (Sawdust City) and Ryan Morrow (Nickel Brook), this year’s version of 11.05 (11.05% abv) is a Belgian Quad with oak and cherries, with the following description:
This year’s 11.05 presents a deep, burnt ruby red, with aromas of candied fruit, dates, cherries and just a touch of fresh oak. Effervescent with a big malty finish, this massive ale hides its elevated alcohol content quite well. A slight acidity helps promote the drinkability, while the beer displays flavours of sweet malt upfront, spicy European hops through the middle and ending with a light fruity finish.
The 2018 edition of 11.05 was brewed at Sawdust City, and is available there now in 473 ml cans and on tap, with $1 from each can and glass sold during the month of November to be donated to Crafting a Cure and JDRF Canada. It will also be available soon at select craft beer bars in Ontario.
