The Ladies' Beer League must have been pleased with us. Last year, in celebration of International Women's Day, we brewed The Alewife's Revenge, a cranberry wheat ale, with the ladies of the Ladies' Beer League.
This year, the theme was "Robust Porter". We accept the challenge and raise you a pile of cinnamon…and molasses.
Introducing Cinnamon Spin!
Big, dark, malty and roasty, with notes of coffee, chocolate, with the teensiest bit of fruitiness in the background, this is everything a Robust Porter should be, including its 6.5% ABV strength.
We added two big forward features to this palette. Cinnamon and molasses. The combination is quite complimentary of the porter, and we think it's a winner.
Because this beer was brewed in observance of International Women's Day, we are donating a portion of the profits from this beer to the Shelburne County Women's Fishnet bursary program and the Halifax Sexual Health Centre.
We're launching this unique beer at Stillwell Beer Bar Saturday April 18, at 6:30 pm.
Only a very few kegs will be available, as well as a cask conditioned version of Cinnamon Spin.
Afterwards, you can find it at Bishop's Cellar, Harvest Wines, Rockhead Wine & Beer Market, and Cristall Wine Merchants.
We will also have it available at our growler exchanges at The Halifax Seaport Market and The Alderney Landing Market on Saturdays.
Of course, you can always get it at the Brewery retail store in beautiful Shelburne.
Get it while it lasts.
