KITCHENER, ON, May 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Brick Brewing Co. Limited (TSX: BRB)
today announced the launch of Waterloo Grapefruit Radler which blends
real grapefruit juice and a finely crafted lager. "The combination of
real grapefruit juice and beer, small-batch brewed in the German style,
creates an extremely refreshing drink for the summer" said Russell
Tabata, Chief Operating Officer, Brick Brewing. "Grapefruit is a
natural combination with the citrus notes of beer and at 3.1% alcohol
it's the perfect way to satisfy a summer thirst."
"Waterloo Grapefruit Radler is the only one of its kind that's
craft-brewed in Ontario" offered Sean Dennis, Director of Marketing.
"We're very excited to be the first Ontario craft brewery to satisfy
people's thirst for this variety of beer."
"We are also offering another specialty craft beer this summer"
continued Dennis. "Our Waterloo Small Batch Brews have become very
popular in our home province. Every season we brew a unique craft beer
or two and this summer we're pleased to share our Waterloo Kolsch with
the people of Ontario. It's a refreshing pale ale that is light in both
colour and body which makes it terrific for the summer season."
Available at both the LCBO and The Beer Store, Waterloo Grapefruit
Radler can be found in 473-ml cans and Waterloo Kolsch in a mix pack
with Waterloo Dark and Waterloo Pilsner - gold medal winner at the 2014
Ontario Brewing Awards.
"When we launched Waterloo Brewing Co. last year as our craft brewing
division we wanted to share the German heritage of our hometown with
the people of Ontario" offered George Croft, President and CEO.
"Kitchener-Waterloo is the beer-loving heart of the country and we're
so very proud to share that spirit with everyone this summer. Our
seasonal specialty craft beers are great demonstrations of the artistry
that goes into crafting truly outstanding and memorable beers. We hope
people enjoy them as much as we do making them - and please enjoy them
