NEW BEER RELEASE: NECTAR OF THE GODS WHEAT WINE ALE - COMPANY'S FIRST BARREL-AGED BEER



This week, Russell Brewing Company released its new super-premium, single-batch beer - Nectar of the Gods Wheat Wine Ale. The entire batch was pre-sold and is currently available in select private retailers in Metro Vancouver.

Nectar of the Gods Wheat Wine Ale is the first barrel-aged beer from Russell Brewing. The beer was carefully aged in Tennessee Whiskey barrels for over four months. The aging process provided the beer with layers of flavour complexity including a fruity-ester character and vanilla-like flavours and tannins. A premium selection of malts were used including over 50% of Wheat Malt and a combination of Pilsner and Munich Malts. The hops were sourced from the USA and France. The US Columbus Hops provide a firm bitterness and the French Strisselspalt Hops offer a lusty black currant flavour and balanced finish. After the barrel-aging , the beer was bottle-conditioned resulting in natural carbonation and sediment. Available in 650ml bottles.
