What’s New !
Railway City Brewing Company is proud to release our Hoptoberfest Beer.
This year our Hoptoberfest is brewed featuring locally grown Bartlett Pears, fresh picked from Turville’s Orchards in Port Stanley. We also sourced local Graveyard Hops to add an interesting tale to this brew.
Graveyard Hops are actually wild hops that were still growing in a local graveyard that was formerly a Hop field by in the late 1800’s. The rhizomes were collected from Steve Peters, former Speaker of the House who has grown them in his back yard for the past few years. This year’s crop was a larger than usual crop.
It was released at an event that was held at the brewery on Thursday October 24tth at 7:00.
We encourage you to come down and pick-up your pint of Hoptoberfest within the first week of sales, as our last two releases sold out within days. Please call ahead to find out if we have any remaining for sale.
