VANCOUVER, BC – Main Street Brewing has announced the launch of March Mildness, a beer series that “showcases milder beer styles made for and enjoyed by true ale aficionados.”
The series falls under the brewery’s Tunnerman’s line of cask ales, and was previewed in late February with the release of Brighton Blonde English Ale (3.9% abv):
This English blonde ale channels (get it?) the iconic East Sussex beachfront resort town with a combination of New World English hops (Harlequin, Admiral, Phoenix) and a malt bill comprising Maris Otter, Isaria and Honey Oat that brings out delicate notes of tropical and stone fruit, subtle earthy hop tones and light, flaky pie crust.
This week’s official kick-off saw the release of Calm Before… Dark Mild Ale (3.8% abv):
Inspired by post WWI-era mild ales, this dark mild is brewed with flaked corn, a house-made invert sugar and a heritage German barley for an ale with notes of light chocolate, dark cherry and sweet bready malt.
The series will be rounded out with Rye Bitter Ale (3.8% abv), which will be released later this month.
All of the March Mildness beers will be featured on hand-pull cask engines in the Main Street Brewing taproom, and in cans from the brewery retail store, while supplies last.
