Big Rock Urban's new Citradelic Single Hop IPA to be featured at the upcoming Craft Beer Fest, Pacific National Exhibition

VANCOUVER, Aug. 19, 2015 /CNW/ -  Big Rock Brewery Inc. ("Big Rock") (TSX:BR)  - Big Rock Urban's newest locally brewed offering, Citradelic Single Hop IPA, is set to be featured among some of the most unique beers being brewed in the Lower Mainland at the PNE's upcoming Craft Beer Fest from August 22nd to September 7th.

Since Big Rock Urban's spring opening in the Mount Pleasant/Brewery Creek area, Brewmaster Jody Hammell has created over 10 different locally crafted beers. Most of those beers have been limited edition releases available only at the Big Rock Urban Eatery, or at the Big Rock Urban Beer Store in growlers. Citradelic is Brewmaster Jody's second beer to be bottled and available throughout the province.

Jody is excited for the opportunity to pour Citradelic at the PNE among the best BC beers and breweries. A refreshing IPA, Citradelic Single Hop IPA gets its name from the Citra hops used in the brewing process. Repeated heavy dosing and dry hopping brings out the smooth citrus and tropical tones of a hop grown in one of the most fertile and productive hop-growing regions in the world, the Yakima Valley.

"The inspiration for this beer came to me when I visited the hop fields of Yakima Valley during harvest last fall," says Jody.  "After living on the prairies for 7 years (where the beer tends to be more malt forward due to the proximity of the barley fields) and now returning to BC, my inspiration has returned back to the hops."

Citradelic Single Hop IPA has an ABV of 6.5% and an IBU of 60 and is available at the BRU Eatery & Beer Store, and many other beer stores across BC. Many of the Citradelic bottles also come with neck-tags that offer a free brewery tour. Pick up a bottle today and come check out

New to the PNE, Craft Beer Fest is a celebration of the craft beer community and is organized by Vancouver Craft Beer Week. Come find Brewmaster Jody and the Big Rock Urban team at Craft Beer Fest, located between the Barns and the Race Track at the PNE, from August 22nd to September 7th.
