TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced the release of two beers from opposite ends of the style, flavour, and alcohol strength spectrums.
Life is Relentless Rye Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with Coffee (10.5% abv):
This iteration of Life is Relentless was aged in Heaven Hill rye barrels for 13 months and then paired with a single origin, natural process Ethiopian bean from Stereo Coffee: Sheka, which is known for having fruitier characteristics over roasty notes. This decadent and full-bodied Imperial Stout imparts intense flavours of cocoa and coffee, complemented by a solid backbone of anise and brown sugar. It drinks smooth while incorporating a warming, boozy finish. Think rye-inoculated Coffee Crisp, sprinkled with crème brûlée crust.
Zongklorg Light Lager (4% abv):
A brand new UFO (ultra fresh offering) has landed on earth. Razor-sharp teeth and tentacles aside, Zongklorg is an extremely approachable extra terrestrial. Inspired by macro beers and made with quality ingredients, this Light Lager incorporates rice flakes in its malt bill for supreme crushability and receives a subtle dry hop for optimal aroma and flavour. Looking for lightness that doesn’t skimp on flavour? Dry, refreshing, and bright: Zongklorg is it.
Life is Relentless and Zongklorg is available now at the Bellwoods retail stores, brewpub taproom, and online shop.
