Raise a glass to the start of the fall season by checking out this free, adults-only event!
Alley Kat Brewing Co., Edmonton’s longest-running microbrewery, is hosting a Launch Party for the release of their two fantastic seasonal fall brews. The Pumpkin Pie Spice Ale is a medium-bodied ale accented with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and has as a light, crisp taste, while the Oktoberfest Lager is brewed with specialty Munich/German malts and has a bold, ‘bready’ taste to it with a moderate aftertaste of hops.
This event will feature a detailed walk-through tour of the brewery, delicious appetizers, and samples of all of the Alley Kat brews. The Edmonton Bone-Wagon Crew will also be on hand with an interesting display of their most unique hearses. (Yes, hearses.)
This event is on Thursday, September 6, 2012 from 5 pm – 8 pm at the Alley Kat Brewery at 9929 60th Ave. There is no cost or registration required to attend the Launch Party. Craft-beer enthusiasts should be eager to try this limited-edition ale, and those that just enjoy a good drink will get to learn about the behind-the-scenes brewing process in an informative, relaxed setting.
