Our fifth beer collaboration is launching July 12th! For our fifth collaborative brew we worked with Edmonton nano-brewery, Bent Stick Brewing, and local Edmonton rock band, The Wet Secrets. Combining their love for beer and rock & roll, the Hopstache Red ISA was crafted. A hop-forward beer with a slight hazy amber colour and aromas of citrus and tropical fruit. A light malt backbone provides a grainy malt sweetness to the brew that balances out the Citra and Mosaic hoppy goodness. The Hopstache Red ISA finishes clean, light and super-dry.
The Hopstache Red ISA will launch Thursday July 12th with a streetcar cask party, hosted by Sherbrooke Liquor, followed by The Wet Secrets show at 9910 where they will be playing their recently released album, The Tyranny Of Objects! The beer will launch on tap at The Common on Friday, July 13th, as part of a Bent Stick Brewing tap take-over that will run July 13th to July 27th.
