Canada's Oldest Independent Brewery Sets New Boundaries: Introducing Boundary Ale from Moosehead
TORONTO, June 10, 2013 /CNW/ - It's new, it's well-crafted and it's all-Canadian.
Right on time for the great Canadian beer-drinking season comes the arrival of Moosehead Breweries' new, premium Boundary Ale.
"Boundary Ale will provide our devoted fans with a new beer to add to the Moosehead portfolio," says Andrew Oland, President and CEO, Moosehead Breweries. "We believe we brew the best lager in Canada so we wanted to challenge our brewers to brew the best ale in Canada."
"Boundary is a remarkably well-balanced beer that is slightly sweet with roasted and caramel malt complexity. It's flavourful and aromatic with a medium body and smooth citrusy finish," says JP Auger, Director of Operations, Moosehead Breweries. Auger and team spent over a year experimenting with carefully selected ingredients before landing on the perfect balance of hops and malts. The two classic American hop varieties, Cascade and Chinook, provide a slight citrus and floral bouquet. The two quintessential English hop varieties, UK Fuggle and East Kent Golding, give it a subtle earthy, woody, and herbal aroma. "The combination of seven different malts makes it a well-balanced beer," he says.
