Kichesippi Uncle Mark’s Hopfen Weisse & Amsterdam Sleeping Giant Barley Wine Launch
Kichesippi Beer Co, based in Ottawa, has launched their Uncle Mark’s Hopfen Weisse, a traditional German Hefeweizen with much more of a hop characteristic to it, both in aroma and bitterness. This is the first in their Family Beer Series, and will be available as a seasonal each summer. Uncle Mark’s will be available in growlers starting August 15th at the brewery, and at National Craft Beer Festival this weekend.
Meanwhile, Toronto’s Amsterdam Brewing is launching their Sleeping Giant Barley Wine, described as single barrel aged with 10.7% ABV. It will be available at the brewery beginning August 14.
