-Historic Brewery Launches Montgomery's Courage 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
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
