Box Rock Brewing releases La Rive du Sud 2.0

(Shelburne, NS) - Boxing Rock Brewing announced the release of La Rive du Sud 2.0, a Bière de Garde that they say is unlike any other beer brewed in Atlantic Canada. Boxing Rock also said they brewed it a little differently this year, and they think that it's the best Bière de Garde they've made yet.

From Boxing Rock "Made with simple base malts and dark caramelized sugar this simple combination of ingredients yields an ale of noteworthy complexity. With notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, as well as tangerine, biscuit, and a chewy malt base that is at once mouth filling and refreshing". They go on to say "We lagered (well, guarded, actually) this ale for weeks until it was perfect. It's remarkably smooth on the palate and although it has a medium-dry finish, it has a lingering pleasant aftertaste that can only be described as "French"." 

The 7.5% ABV beer is available now while it lasts in 650 ml bottles, 1L growlers and on tap at select locations.
