Drinkers looking for a strong beer to be sipped and savoured need look no further than Steamworks Imperial Red Ale. Back for another year in limited quantities, this powerful product is hitting shelves in BC Liquor stores and private liquor stores early next week. It will also be pouring at the Steamworks Brewpub, Taproom in Burnaby and select bars across the lower mainland.
This fan favourite has also recently taken home best in show and a gold medal at the 2015 Vancouver International Craft Beer Awards. It's strong resume is matched by a strong flavour profile, showcasing some of the best hop varieties North America has to offer. Generous amounts of Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops provide intense pine, fruity and floral aromas, followed by a taste of toffee and caramel flavours with an aggressive bitterness.
Coming it at 8.5% and 80 IBU's this dark copper delight serves as the perfect companion to round out the final weeks of winter.
