Hoptoberfest 2016 Release Party

Railway City Brewing Co. releases the 2016 Hoptoberfest brew on Thursday, October 6th, 2016 from 7-9pm at the brewery! This year's brew is a wet-hopped Vienna Lager with 35lbs of fresh whole cone Cascade hops from two local farms.

Hoptoberfest enters the glass in an autumn orange hue. Caramelized sugar aromas from malts and a hint of cinnamon spice from freshly-picked hops fill the nose. This medium-bodied brew has a crisp and light hop spice, sweet malt profile, and softly lingering hop flavour on the tongue, making it a perfectly balanced beer for fall. Hoptoberfest pairs well with your favourite Mexican or spicy dish.

The release party will consist of a hop rub to see first hand how hops are utilized in our brews and hear from our brewers! For an admission fee of $5 per person, enjoy a blind tasting experience, win prizes, and listen to some tunes while enjoying a great brew! 

See you all there! ;)
PS: This one is ridiculously good...
