What is the 2016 Unity Brew?

The 2016 Unity Brew by Big Rock Brewery is a must-try Dark Wheat Ale.

What is the 2016 Unity Brew?

The Alberta Craft Beer Community has a reputation for collaboration and supporting each other and nothing expresses this more than the Alberta Small Brewers Association (ASBA) 2016 Unity Brew.

 

ASBA Unity Brew – 2016

This is the 8th year that the ASBA member breweries have gotten together and created the Unity Brew. This year, the hosting brewery was Big Rock Brewery. This means that Big Rock gets the honour of starting the beer sales at their store. Albertans never tire that they are surrounded by some of the finest wheat and barley in the world. So, it is not surprising that the 2016 Unity Brew is a rich, dark, wheat ale. This 6.2% beer is described as, “holy suited to bring forth the distinctive tastes and aromas of the five malts and special yeasts [Big Rock Brewery] selected for the recipe”. The Dark Wheat Ale features malts from 5 Alberta malt suppliers and a lot of effort and good will from all the Alberta breweries which participated in this year’s Unity Brew.

Unity Brew Proceeds:

All proceeds from this beer go to support the ASBA and it’s initiatives to promote and raise awareness about Alberta craft beer. So, drink up and support a great cause!
