Develop a Taste for History with New Beer from Black Creek Historic Brewery

-Historic Brewery Launches Black Creek Pale Ale at the LCBO-

TORONTO, May 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Black Creek Historic Brewery, today announced the launch of Montgomery's Courage at select LCBO stores. The beer is the 3rd Edition in a series of 12 historic beers that represents each consecutive decade of Canadian and brewing history, Montgomery's Courage represents the decade from 1830 - 1839 when the separate colonies of Upper and Lower Canada both revolted against unjust government rule.

In 1837, Toronto's Montgomery's Tavern became the base for a rebellious force led by William Lyon Mackenzie that was quickly defeated. Legend has it that the rebels courage was due in large part to consumption of the tavern's fine ales.

"In 1830's rye based ales like Montgomery's Courage were in abundance,' said Ed Koren, Brewmaster, Black Creek Historic Brewery. "This amber ale is lightly carbonated and balanced to favour a slightly bitter hopping while delivering peppery, spicy notes with a bouquet reminiscent of ripe apples or calvados."

Black Creek Montgomery's Courage (product # 34137) retails for $3.95 per 500 mL (pint) bottle and is available in May and only for a short time. LCBO customers can search the LCBO website, www.lcbo.com to locate stores offering the product, or simply ask for it at their local outlet.

About Black Creek Historic Brewery
Located in Black Creek Pioneer Village, the Black Creek Historic Brewery is a working recreation of a 19th century brewery, an era when beer was both a popular beverage and a staple food. Using only period equipment and no electricity, the Brewery handcrafts the same ale and porter varieties enjoyed in Ontario before Confederation. Open daily to the public, visitors can chat with costumed interpreters or join guided tours and taste samples drawn from oak barrels. The beer can be enjoyed on the premises at the Black Creek Historic Brewery Restaurant and Pub, or brought home in returnable "growlers." Public events are held throughout the year at the Brewery; the facility is also available for corporate and private functions. Black Creek ales and porters sold off-site at LCBO stores are brewed at a commercial facility under the supervision of the Brewmaster. Black Creek Historic Brewery is a member of the Ontario Craft Brewers and is operated by Black Creek Pioneer Village in partnership with Pioneer Breweries Limited.
