(Halifax, NS) - Garrison Brewing released three new beers this week. First Lemondrop, a part of the kettle sour series Daniel has been concocting at our old plant, is a 5.0% ABV and 0 IBU kettle sour dry hopped with Lemondrop hops. According to Daniel it has an “aroma and flavour of lemon and lemon meringue pie, and finishes nicely with a touch of lemon and pepper”.
After Halifax was announced as the host of the 2018 Canadian Brewing Awards Garrison reached out to Sawdust City in Gravenhurst, ON and wanted to brew something special to commemorate. Leroy is a behemoth imperial brown ale weighing in at 10% ABV and 41 IBU. Aromas of molasses bread and milk chocolate will give way to a smooth flavour of molasses, coffee and finish with massive tones of dark chocolate. As our fall nights get cool, Leroy will provide some warmth.
The Imperial Brown is at the growler program in NB this week end but will eventually be making its way into bottles for a super limited release here in Nova Scotia.
Lastly Garrison has the latest Federation of Beer Star Trek release coming next week: Borg Ale. It won’t be bottled until next week, however they’ll be serving up samples of it at Hal-Con this week end.
Garrison says "We are the Borg, and this is our ale. Lower your shields, raise a glass, and surrender your taste-buds. Resistance is futile… But, that’s OK because this is the most advanced black ale in the entire Delta Quadrant. Created with Dark Munich and Black Malt, this strong dark ale is sure to satisfy your bio-chip". The ale is 5.6% ABV and 25 IBU and will be released in the brewery and at private stores.
