HAMPTON, NB – A new brewery planning to open in – and taking its name from – the town of Hampton in southern New Brunswick has entered the market via contract brewing while setting up a permanent home.
Victory! Pale Ale (5.5% abv, 50 IBU) is described as follows:
A hoppy and smooth American Pale Ale that boosts a mix of citrus, tropical fruit and piney flavors and aroma from the healthy amounts Citra and Vic Secret hops added to the whirlpool addition and our two-stage dry hop. A blend of base and roasted malts provides a enough malt complexity to compliment the hops.
Crush Session IPA (4.6% abv, 50 IBU) has the following notes:
Our take on an American Session IPA that packs a ton of flavor and aroma for a low ABV beer. Brewed with Centennial and Mosaic hops, this beer has intense aromas of citrus, tropical and stone fruits with a hint of floral. It boasts a medium-light body and finishes crisp with a smooth mouthfeel and lasting fruit flavors.
Victory! and Crush are on tap now at select craft beer bars in New Brunswick. For more details, see the Hampton Brewing Facebook page.
