Thunderdome is a special creation just for the Canadian Brewing Awards and Conference (@cdnbrewawards) made in collaboration with @yakimachief and @canadamaltingco. Yakima Chief Hops supplied the experimental hops (HBC 586, HBC 630) as well as our favourite, Cryo Pop, and Canadian Malting Co supplied pilsner, red wheat, oat malt and flaked oats.
We got right down to it, heaping in the experimental hops and new malts to create this wonderful Hazy Pale Ale. Our reverse osmosis water and our spunding technique for natural carbonation, help create a beer that is soft, juicy, and exploding with heavy citrus flavours and aromas.
This is a draft only beer so you can find it in the taproom, at the Canadian Brewing Conference, and a few select bars.
