Surrey, BC, Canada – Following the auspicious releases of Central City’s Sour Brown I and Sour Kriek II, the brewery is introducing the third edition in its Sour series: Central City Sour Framboise III.

The Central City Sour Framboise III is a traditional Belgian-style sour infused with local raspberries and aged for more than two years in a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and French oak Foeders. Long maturation on the berries, combined with the sour culture mix of Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus produces a very complex beer with tart raspberry notes up front, and a dry finish with notes of grass and hay.

“Sour beers have been very popular in the last 5 years here locally,” says Gary Lohin, Brewmaster at Central City Brewers & Distillers. “I like to follow the traditional Belgian way of brewing sours using the slower, barrel-aging methods to draw out the complexities of the flavours and adding interesting ingredients like raspberries or sour cherries. What we get is a stronger, more full bodied profile that beer connoisseurs can savour, like you would get from a wine or port.”

Also just in time for Christmas, Central City is introducing a Thor’s Hammer Barley Wine Gift Pack, a combo-pack that includes a 2014 bottle-conditioned Thor’s Hammer, which won Gold at this year’s 2016 BC Beer Awards, and a 2014 Bourbon barrel-aged Thor’s Hammer, which won Bronze. The award-winning barley wine is mahogany in colour and crafted from fine barley malt exuding deep, rich notes of dried fruit, plum and candy with a walnut ester.

Both the Central City Sour Framboise III (750 ml, 9.5% alc./vol.) and the Thor’s Hammer Barley Wine Gift Pack (2 x 650 ml, 11.5% alc./vol.) will be available in liquor stores late November in BC, Alberta and Manitoba.
