Surrey, BC (November 17, 2014) – Fantasy can become reality for Canadian craft beer fans and The Hobbit devotees! Central City Brewers + Distillers has signed an exclusive agreement to brew and distribute the series of beers inspired by The Hobbit Trilogy to the Canadian market.
“We are extremely excited and proud to be the first Canadian brewery to get the exclusive brewing and distribution rights to The Hobbit Trilogy series of beers,” says Tim Barnes, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Central City Brewers + Distillers. “With the last film of The Hobbit Trilogy coming out in December, we are working hard to get these beers in stores by Christmas.”
As the exclusive Canadian partner, Central City will unleash the three beers selectively tailored to emulate the characters from the films – Gollum (Smeagol), the Dragon Smaug, and the vicious Orc Chieftain Bolg – to Middle-earth British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Central City is also working on distributing the beers to the east coast.
Consisting of a “Precious” Pilsner with Northwest hops, a Russian Imperial Stout mildly flavored with Habanero chilies, and a smooth Belgian-style Tripel; these beers will take you on the journey of a lifetime.
