This marks the first time Big Boot—winner of two Ontario Brewing Awards gold medals—will be available on shelves across Ontario.
The unfiltered German-style wheat beer pours a gorgeous cloudy yellow, and boasts big bursts of clove, banana and mild spices. It’s like sunshine in a glass.
Lon Ladell, Big Rig Brewery’s brewmaster, couldn’t be happier with the release of Big Boot, as the style recalls a time in his life that still sticks out in his memory.
“I was brewing in Europe in the late 90s and I might have spent way too much time in German beer halls where you could get fresh Hefeweizen in 2L glass boots. I’m confident we’ve recreated that taste and feel with Big Boot.”
Big Boot comes in at 4.8% ABV and will be available in the LCBO in 473mL cans until the end of summer. It will also be available direct from the brewery, and on tap at select bars and restaurants across Ontario.
