Bob’s Bearded Red

Brewmaster’s Notes

Ernest Hemmingway once said that “You should always do sober what you said you would do drunk. That’ll teach you to keep your mouth shut!” Bob and I had a few too many pints at his bar one night and got talking about how awesome this would be and so here it is! This is a beer that I made for a very good friend of mine and is the house beer at his bar/my local. Pure. Pub. Pint.

An Irish-style Red Ale brewed as a collaboration between world-renowned Canadian opera signer Robert Pomakov and his pal Joel Manning. Bob’s Bearded Red is brewed with a blend of imported and Canadian malt and hops including Chinook hops from Prince Edward County to give it a beautiful balanced palate with a kiss of spice from this classic North American hop. Nitrogen-charged for classic pub draught creaminess, this amber beauty is true Canadian craft set on a global stage.

Tasting Notes: Nitrogen charged and malt driven with a softness of caramel malt on the palate and a drying finish from Ontario-grown “piney” Chinook hops. Very understated.
