Garrison releases much anticipated second 15th anniversary beer
HALIFAX, N.S. – December 5, 2012– This Friday, Garrison Brewing will launch “15th Anniversary Malt, Vanilla & Cocoa“. This is the much anticipated second of two special release beers by one of Halifax’s original microbreweries celebrating 15 years in business.
“Hitting 15 years is a real milestone in business and we’re truly grateful for such strong local support,” says company president Brian Titus. “15th Anniversary Malt is intensely rich, complex, dark, roasty, bittersweet… you get the point. It’s all been leading to this!”
“We followed the concept of our spring 15 Hops brew, using 15 separate malts, two unmalted grains, bundles of vanilla beans & bags of raw cocoa husk,” explains Daniel Girard, Garrison’s Brewmaster. “The result is an Imperial Stout of epic proportions with a dark, sweet character and lingering velvety texture. Enjoy!”
“15th Anniversary Malt, Vanilla & Cocoa” is 9.0% alc/vol with moderate to high bitterness. It’s packaged in 500ml single-serve bottles and officially goes on sale Friday, December 7, at the brewery store and all four private stores (while supplies last).
