R&B Brewing Launches Roggenbier – First of The Mount Pleasant Series
R&B is creating a new series! We’ve named it “The Mount Pleasant series” after the historical and modern day significance in Vancouver’s brewing scene and the diverse neighbourhood that we have been apart of for the last 18 years.
It will be a rotational program of limited releases offering a variety of new and interesting flavours throughout the year.
The first of the series is a “Roggenbier”-a modern recreation of a historical and traditional German rye beer brewed in the period before the Reinheitsgebot. The addition of rye imparts a spicy character to this deep copper coloured beer, while fermentation using a traditional german weissbier yeast in our unique horizontal tanks, promotes an aroma of earth, spicy clove and banana.
A limited release, available the first week of September, available in 20 and 50L kegs as well as 650 ml bottles.
