Category 12 Releases Elemental Series Raw Ale

19532496_10154469194526193_1166595742_o.jpgCategory 12 Brewing in Saanichton BC has released Raw Ale, which is the latest edition to their Elemental Series of wild and sour ales.

Raw Ale is a westcoast farmhouse ale brewed with Brettanomyces and red cedar. Check out the description below:

Reaching back across the millenia, we’re created our version of an ancient ale that is fermented without ever being boiled. This Scandanavian-inspired farmhouse raw ale combines our heritage with our brewing “family” by infusing West Coast red cedar from the workshop of local Coast Salish¬†artist, Chris Paul, who also contributed art to our label.

A primary Brettanomyces fermentation, merged with the benefits of refermentation in the bottle, results in a deliciously¬†light, crisp, and complex beer that encapsulates our Elementary series’ commitment to experimentation and innovation.

You can find bottles from today at the Category 12 retail store and select liquor stores in Victoria, with Vancouver to follow shortly.

  • OG: 1.048
  • IBU: 13
  • SRM: 3.9
