PINKIES UP EARL GREY PALE ALE
Our latest in the Back Alley Brew Series, an Earl Grey Pale Ale named Pinkies Up, that will have you reaching for your satin gloves after one sip. This fancy brew features Earl Grey tea from Acquired Taste Tea Company and art by a local artist, Borys Tarasenko.
Pinkies Up is a dark gold pale ale that will hit your senses with a citrus and black tea aroma, as well as a bergamot, black tea, and light malt taste brought out by the Earl Grey tea. Hopped with Amarillo and Citra, this brew offers a citrusy twist to a classic pale ale. Pinkies Up (5.4% ABV, 28 IBU) will be available at the Alley Kat brewery as well as select liquor stores, restaurants, and bars in Alberta while supplies last.

WHAT IS OUR B.A.B. SERIES?
Every two months, our brewing team gets to showcase their skills and creativity in whatever weird and wonderful way strikes their mood (... and we can attest, they are all both weird AND wonderful!)
The brewers will get and idea and we'll start working on a small "test batch", which is about 20L or so. We'll taste it, adjust, and brew it again and again until we are happy with the beer. These one-off brews are what make up our Back Alley Brew series! They're limited releases but the sky's the limit for this series!
To give you a bit of an idea: we brewed a Wee Heavy Braggot dubbed "Crossing Streams" with mead from Fallen Timber Meadery, "Dale’s Coffee Pale Ale" made with locally roasted coffee, "Ocean Pearl" Gose with tons of fresh cucumbers and sea salt, and "Old Jakes' Dark Saison" made with French Saison Yeast)! ... All we're saying is that they're wacky, wonderful, and you gotta try them before they're gone!
