Nickel Brook and Sawdust City Release Annual 11.05 Birthday Beer

Burlington, Ontario – Nickel Brook announced that its annual collaboration with Sawdust City is an Imperial Sour with Soursop fruit, to be released on November 5. Known as 11.05, the beer has become a tradition between brewmasters and friends Ryan Morrow (Nickel Brook) and Sam Corbeil (Sawdust City), who share the November 5 birthday. As always, this year’s batch will be released on Sunday November 5 through Nickel Brook’s Bottle Shop and on-tap at the Sawdust City Saloon. Limited kegs will be tapped at better beer bars across Ontario the following week.

“We’ve really been working on a lot of great sours here at Nickel Brook, so we wanted to bring that into the mix this year” says Brewmaster Ryan Morrow. “Getting to 11% just means lots more malt and a bit of added sugar, and then Sam had the idea of using this Soursop fruit which gives the beer a really unique tropical flavor and creamy mouthfeel.”

Previous incarnations of 11.05 have included an Imperial Saison, a Belgian Triple and a Triple IPA, each brewed to 11.05%. This year’s batch will be released through the Nickel Brook Bottle Shop in Burlington in 375ml bottles and will retail for $4.50/bottle. Only 3000 bottles will be available.
