For Ides 72 we are celebrating Toronto music legend Sam "The Record Man" Sniderman's iconic sign. Sam's big idea was to put a 4 story neon sign with 2 spinning records at Yonge and Dundas Square. For most of the 1970s, 80s and 90s this sign stood tall spinning all night long.
To celebrate this historic sign we brewed a Cherry Hibiscus Blonde Ale to match the red colour of the sign! This brew pours a deep red colour with a thin white head, smells of toasty malt, tart cherries with a notes of herbs and flowers. Boasting flavours of tart cherries, toasty malt with a lingering acidity. Overall this brew is tart and bright with lively fruity notes and a floral backbone.
