HALIFAX, NS – 2 Crows Brewing has announced the release of a new “super crisp, super bright, super fun little lager,” as well as the latest edition of a barrel-aged sour ale that was first released early last year.
Dos Cuervos Mexican Lager is described as follows:
Brewed with Shoreline Malting Pilsner and chit malt, as well as a hefty amount of corn, we performed a low oxygen mash (as is becoming standard with all our lagers). Hopped late in the boil with Motueka hops, and fermented low and slow with Mexican lager yeast. Krausened with more fresh lager wort and yeast, and lightly dry hopped with more Motueka before lagering for about 8 weeks. Super soft and smooth carbonation from our krausening, with a nice little lime zip from the hopping. Fresh, smooth, and easy to quaff – this is all we’re gonna be drinking after days on the production side. We’re real proud of this little crusher.
Cloud 9 has the following notes:
This release is a blend of a couple different beers – one with a higher hop content and conditioned about 1.5 years in sauv blanc barrel, and the other less hoppy and about 1 year in barrel. Blended and conditioned on 110g/l of bakeapple, picked by the wonderful and generous Paul Smith out of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland. More vinous and a little less tart than the previous iteration of C9, the bakeapple shines really nicely in this release. Notes of apricot, honey, gooseberry, and lemongrass.
Both beers are available in the 2 Crows retail shop and online store while supplies last.
