BACK ALLEY BREWS
HIGHWAY TO HELLES & red demon
Our latest in the Back Alley Brew Series, a mixed pack of Highway to Helles German Lager and Red Demon Red Rice Lager. These mixed packs will be available through the brewery, liquor stores, and bars/restaurants (COVID 19 restrictions permitting) for a limited time. Both cans feature art by Edmonton artist, Josh Harnack.
HIGHWAY TO HELLES | German Lager
This Munich Helles is a German style lager that's malt-forward in character with a hint of sweetness. It features German and French hops that work together to create a crisp, light flavour.
RED DEMON | Red Rice Lager
Despite what the name says, this lager isn't actually red. The Sri Lanken red rice enhances the flavour but not so much the colour. The combination of Sterling hops and red rice creates a brew that's light in colour and body, and also crisp and refreshing.

Red Demon: Canada Malting Superior Pilsner and Sri Lakan Red Rice

HIGHWAY TO HELLES & RED DEMON ARTIST
Josh Harnack uses visual art to communicate ideas, thoughts, and emotions to the world. Josh was raised in Edmonton, Alberta, where his spark for the arts began. Originally he began studying film at Vancouver Film School but his interests shifted towards fine art and design. Josh has since graduated with honours from NAIT, majoring in both Graphic Design and Visual Communication while showing his works in exhibitions and galleries across Canada. Josh's work extends to many different mediums but specializes in oil and acrylic painting. His themes usually centre around belonging, or lack thereof, blending in and standing out, and the sheer weirdness of existence. Josh has received awards and grants in both fine arts and design.
Currently, Josh is working on a wide range of projects, focused on creating meaningful and worthwhile art before his time expires.

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!
