May The Schwarz Be With You

This Saturday, May 4th, we’ll be releasing Black Opal Schwarzbier, a collaboration with Lauren Richard, who is one of the few Advanced Cicerones® in Canada. She possesses in-depth knowledge about a great many styles and has the palate and skill to craft beautiful beers.
Developed in East Germany, Schwarzbiers are low-alcohol, moderately dry, dark lagers. Black Opal is crisp and refreshing and showcases a very delicate roast character. It is deceptively light and will defy your visual expectations. Like the most precious and rare of all opals, Black Opal is anything but common.
You’ll find Lauren behind the bar at Hotmess Tex Mex where she’ll be pouring Black Opal Schwarzbier beginning this Saturday evening. It will also be on tap, available for purchase online and in 355ml cans here at the brewery on Saturday.
