Surrey, British Columbia. Central City Brewers & Distillers is expanding its exploration of hop flavours with two new seasonal release products. Known best for their Red Racer IPA, hop forward beers have been a staple of Central City Brewers’ product mix.  Showcasing their love for hops is the new Red Racer Lemon Groove Golden Ale and Hopping Mad Mosaic Hopped Cider.

The Lemon Groove is a seasonal release under the Red Racer brand. This beer is single hopped using the Lemon Drop hop variety. Giving notes of citrus and lemon, this Golden Ale is a balance of hop aromatics and moderate bitter notes. Together, a lemon-peel like character, along with a mid-body, provide a smooth and aromatic experience.

From Central City’s Hopping Mad Cider brand, comes their first seasonal cider release. Building on the hopped, core product, this cider is dry-hopped, using the tropical flavoured, mosaic hop. Giving notes of mango and citrus, this aromatic craft cider is lightly sweet and unique among hopped ciders. Craft cider and craft beer drinkers alike will find something to love about this limited release product.

Central City Brewers & Distillers Brewmaster, Gary Lohin, comments:

“We have been known for our hoppy beers and we wanted to show the more subtle character of what hops can do to craft beer and cider. The Lemon Drop is a new hop, and we were very excited to experiment with its citrus character.

We also use the Mosaic Hop in our Red Racer India Session Ale and Super Stellar IPA. We chose to use it in a cider to give the flavour that we love in an innovative cider product.”

The Red Racer Lemon Groove and Hopping Mad Mosaic Hop will be available at select craft retailers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
