KAMLOOPS, BC – Red Collar Brewing has announced the release of a beer that has roots in the early days of British Columbia’s craft brewing industry.
Black Bear Ale (5% abv) is a revival of a one of the most popular beers from Bear Brewing, a brewery that Red Collar owner David Beardsell operated in Kamloops in the late ’90s and early ’00s. It’s described as follows:
Black Bear is a dark ale made with black currants and boysenberries. It is both roasty and fruity, making it enjoyable for any season. Please note that this was a first attempt at a recreation of a recipe that hasn’t been made by David in 20 years, it may not be 100% the same as you remember! We hope this beer is enjoyed by Black Bear veterans and newbies alike!
Black Bear Ale is available now at the Red Collar taproom and online shop, and select beer retailers in British Columbia.
