St. Ambroise Vintage 2009....$5.99 / 11.5oz
"Made with a blend of wheat and barley malts, including Munich malt, this unfiltered ale has a lovely deep-orange colour, rich maltiness, hints of caramelized fruit that recall plum pudding, and a surprisingly crisp, balanced finish provided by classic Goldings hops. Serve St-Ambroise Vintage Ale between 13 ºC and 15 ºC, preferably in a port glass or brandy snifter. Also, this vintage ale will improve with age for a number of years. Store in a cool, dark place." -- brewery
"20 years ago, McAuslan Brewing opened its doors on St-Ambroise Street, bringing beer lovers unparalleled beer experiences. Two decades later, we are still doing it. Brewed just once a year by Peter McAuslan and brew master, Ellen Bounsall, St. Ambroise Vintage Ale is the culmination of our experience and passion. Our previous vintage ales have won accolades and international awards. We expect no less from our 2009 series.
However, there is something special about this particular beer. We have done a lot of living in the last twenty years, and we have learned much about our craft. We are stronger now than we were in '89, thanks in large part to our staff, our customers and countless others who have helped us along on our journey.
Therefore, this particular St.-Ambroise Vintage Ale is a tribute to everone who has touched our lives in the past twenty years and helped us to brew truly great beer. From our home to yours."
Peter and Ellen.
