APPLE JACK’D RYE ALE
GL HERITAGE BREWING CO.
Just released for its 3rd season
Described as juicy, smooth and refreshing, this ale has just a hint of apple sweetness, very low hop finish (11 IBU) and has bit of a kick on the finish with an ABV of 7%.
As with every beer from GL Heritage, there is a story behind this name. First, the brewery wanted to launch a fall beer style, but, one different than a common pumpkin beer. Always wanting to honour local, they decided the apple orchards that are plentiful in Windsor-Essex were the perfect partner to complement their agricultural-based brewery. This ale (although it technically falls into the fruit beer category) is infused with gently-spiced, fresh-pressed apples from Meleg Orchards and then blended with Apple Caramel Whiskey from our neighbours at Wolfhead Distillery.
Considering the brewery owners many tributes to the 7 generations of their family who have lived on this century farmland before us, they decided this beer would give a nod to Jack Waldron, two generations before prior, who retired as Master Blender and Taster at Hiram Walker. It’s a perfect nod to family, to the regions agricultural importance and also the rich whisky history in Windsor-Essex.
