Seasonal Favourite Returns For The Holidays - Wild Rose Cherry Porter

Calgary, AB

Wild Rose Brewery is pleased to announce the return of a seasonal favourite - Wild Rose Cherry Porter. Brewed using only the plumpest, ripest whole BC cherries, each glass of this local brew is lush and creamy with a fruity aroma. The annual holiday tradition of releasing Wild Rose Cherry Porter continues in 2011 with the official launch on October 27th.

Wild Rose Cherry Porter:
Rich and sensual, the flavour of Cherry Porter is reminiscent of Black Forest cake with sweet chocolate notes and a slightly smoky character from roasted barley malts. As always, celebrate the season and enjoy a glass of Wild Rose Cherry Porter with someone special.

Brew Specs:

  • Eight kinds of malt
  • Two kinds of hops – Willamette and Perle
  • 80 kg (that’s 176 pounds!) of fresh cherries per batch (batches are small and handcrafted) – sweet cherries for aroma; sour cherries for flavour
  • 6.5% alc./vol.
To celebrate the return of this brew, a special Cask Conditioned batch of the Cherry Porter will be tapped on Friday, October 28th at 4pm MST at the Wild Rose Brewery & Taproom. Crafted in limited quantities, Wild Rose Cherry Porter will be available in one litre flip-top bottles at liquor stores in Alberta, on tap at a number of select locations including The Ship and Anchor in Calgary and at Wild Rose Brewery & Taproom (403.720.2733).
