Hamilton, Ontario – Collective Arts Brewing have announced their autumn beer line up that will be released at their brewery store Saturdays this fall. The beers offered will be Sour Harvest, IPA no. 4, Wet Hop, and Cranberry Basil Gose.
- SOUR HARVEST SAISON – 5% ABV. 8 IBUs
Available September 9 11:00AM at the brewery store.
Our Sour Harvest Saison is truly a unique mash up of styles and flavours. This brew starts as a classic Saison, utilizing a traditional Saison yeast to provide both spicy and earthy tones. We then inoculate the wort with Lactobacillus for 24 hours, giving the brew a refreshing sour flavour. From there we add locally grown and roasted pumpkins and traditional pumpkin pie spices. The final product is pure magic: sweet sour, and spicy. Refreshing and unique.
- IPA NO. 4 – 6.4% ABV. 80 IBUs
Available September 23 11:00AM at the brewery store
It’s the season for fresh hops and as the 4th edition of our IPA project, our brewers knew they needed to find a mix that would deliver on an assaulting-ly juicy, dank aroma, and taste. We added hops everywhere but the boil in this hazy, yellow brew. Breathe it all in as floral, fruity, pineapple from the Hallertau Blanc, earthy, blueberry, blossoms from the Mosaic, and citrus, gooseberry, lychee from the Citra transport you to warmer longer days of summer past.
- WET HOP WHEAT ALE – 5% ABV. 25 IBUs
Available September 30 11:00AM at the brewery store
This beer celebrates the harvest season with local Ontario hops picked within hours of brewing. 2-Row, wheat, and cara malts were mixed with a touch of Briess Wheat which lends this ale it’s goldish colour. The result is a straw-like, golden brew that’s extremely smooth and drinkable with a huge nose of juicy fruit and grassy mango, with pungent hops and a bready malt finish.
- CRANBERRY BASIL GOSE – 4.7% ABV. 12 IBUs
Available October 7 11:00AM at the brewery store
We reward our adventurous kettle sour drinkers with this surprisingly satisfying combination. Expect a slight peppery, anise, savoury quality from the fresh ground basil with a refreshing, sharply dry fruity character of cranberry, rounded right out with the pink Himalayan salt and coriander from our core range gose we use as a base in this limited release.
The beers will roll out into the LCBO, and bars and restaurants the following week.
