Cheshire Valley Brewing adds new brewer, new beer
Toronto – Cheshire Valley Brewing Co. has brought on Black Oak Brewing brewer Mike Lynn to spearhead future brewing operations.
Paul Dickey – who founded the contract brewery in 2010 – said he will remain on as a consultant and brand ambassador.
“I approached Mike to partner with me because he is a passionate brewer. He brews traditional, well-balanced beers which fit right in with what Cheshire Valley does best,” says Dickey.
In celebration of the new partnership, Cheshire Valley will release a single-hopped pale ale using the German-source Arianna hop.
“Ariana is an awesome hop for dry-hopping, where its tropical fruit and citrus flavour really start to pop on the palate while still preserving some of the great floral and earthy characteristics that old-world hops are famous for. We kept the bitterness low at 35 IBUs, and also dialed back the crystal malts to avoid the cloying sweetness of some IPAs and Pale Ales. The beer finishes dry, with a hint of bready maltiness,” explains Lynn.
Find it on draught in select Toronto bars and at Cask Days 2017.
