Ontario, Canada – Collective Arts Brewing has announced the release of four new brews to their portfolio. Beginning March 24, 2017, at 5:30PM, a new beer will be released on each Friday at their brewery store, and products will launch in LCBO, grocery, and bars and restaurants the week following. All four products will be distributed in U.S. markets by the end of April. Core brands being added include Radio the Mothership Imperial IPA, and Prophets and Nomads Gose. Adding to the Collective Project series are IPA #2, and Dry Hop Sour.
Release date, March 24, 2017 – Radio the Mothership Imperial IPA is a core product, limited brew, that will return four times a year. Radio the Mothership is big and juicy with an earthy bitterness, made with Simcoe, Mosaic, and Citra hops. The name Radio the Mothership was conceived as a way to tie into Collective Arts’ galactic-themed IPA, Ransack the Universe. “Radio” is a retro notion of connectivity that connects drinkers back to the source: the brewery, or the “Mothership”. As Collective Arts travels the world, they will stay connected and be sure to Radio the Mothership.
Release date, March 31, 2017 – Prophets & Nomads Gose will be a year-round, core brew. It is an unfiltered wheat beer made with malted wheat. It offers a unique cloudy, yellow colour, low hop bitterness, and features coriander and Himalayan salt. The name Prophets & Nomads is a salute to the creators that Collective Arts works with: brewers, artists, and musicians. A creative class that thinks outside the box, learns from the past, and looks beyond their own backyard for inspiration.
Release date, April 7, 2017 – IPA #2 is the second in the series of Collective Project India Pale Ales. This cloudy, “New England” style IPA is beautifully balanced with tropical, citrus and piney heavy hops: Mosaic, Simcoe and Waimea. This is a small batch brew that will only be around for a limited time.
Release date, April 14, 2017 – Dry Hop Sour was the answer to a never-ending battle between hop heads and sour lovers. To appease the two, Collective Arts’ brewers used Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand and Citra from the Pacific Northwest. This mixed fermentation brew is juicy, sour, and refreshing.
