Hop City Brewing Introduces New Brew

Brampton-based Craft Brewery Launches Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse beer

BRAMPTON, ON, April 15 /CNW/ - Spring just sprung but the brewmasters at Hop City Brewing Company - Ontario's craft brewery with attitude - are already preparing for the summer heat with the launch of Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse beer.

"The skies are blue, the air is warming and it is obvious that beer season is upon us - we hope," said Deanna Kaminskyj, Brand Manager, Hop City Brewing. "Our brewmasters created Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse, a true Bavarian Hefeweizen, to complement all that summer entertaining has to offer."

The second beer from Hop City, Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse is a true Bavarian-style Hefeweizen beer with a light golden colour and naturally cloudy appearance. Made with a blend of two-row Canadian Malt, Canadian Wheat Malt, Canadian Carastan Malt, German Hops and Bavarian Wheat Beer Ale Yeast, beer drinkers are sure to love this truly local brew.

Hop City launched Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse last night, at a beer, media and hospitality industry event at Andrew Richards Designs, in downtown Toronto. The packed house had no idea why they were invited to the party until Hop City's brewmasters, Kevin Gray and John Gagliardi took the stage.

"After the success of Hop City's signature Barking Squirrel Lager, we are very excited about our new brew," said Gray at the event. "I can see that Lawn Chair is a definite hit with the crowd tonight, and we hope that beer lovers will also follow suit."

Lawn Chair "Classic" Weisse will be available on tap at bars and restaurants throughout the GTA just in time for summer.
