Aldergrove, BC —  Dead Frog’s Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock is back again with a new look and recipe, and is available now at liquor stores across BC.

The Weeping Reaper is a haunting golden lager with a hint of blood orange and a slight caress of hops.  “We changed the recipe up a bit this year to bring out the blood orange a little more”, says Dead Frog Head Brewer Cole Smith. “We also added a bit more hops to round out the finish and compliment the warmth from the alcohol.  The end result is a brew with more flavour and better balance, that still doesn’t contain a single ounce of pumpkin.”

Brew Description

Prepare for the bittersweet embrace of the Reaper.  A crisp golden lager with a splash of citrus from all natural blood orange, a sweet caress of fruity hop flavour and aroma, and a brisk dry finish. 26 IBU and 7% alc./vol.

The Weeping Reaper Blood Orange Helles Bock is a single batch brew.  It’s available now in liquor stores in BC in 650mL single bottles, and on tap in select pubs and restaurants for a limited time only.​

​Unpasteurized, preservative-free, and small batch brewed, Dead Frog beer is also available on draught in select pubs, restaurants, and for growler fills at the brewery. Follow Dead Frog on Twitter and Instagram @DeadFrogBrewery for announcements on availability.
