What’s New !
Railway City Brewing Company is proud to release our Shambock—our “German beer for an Irish holiday”.
Our Shambock is a Dopplebock, one of Germany’s biggest beers—a powerful lager style traditionally brewed in the spring. Often referred to as the monks’ “Liquid Bread”, the monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the body but also the soul.
Brewed featuring locally produced Maple Syrup from Palmers Maple Syrup farm in Port Stanley, Ontario
It was released at an event that was held at the brewery on Thursday January 16th at 7:00. It will also be available in the LCBO in February and March. Please ask your local LCBO Manager to feature it at their store.
We encourage you to come down and pick-up your pint of the Shambock, we should have some until just after the St.Patrick’s Day festivities. Please call ahead to find out if we have any remaining for sale.
Platform 14—Home Brew Competition!
Do you have what it takes to Brew the Best Brew? We want to find out! Railway City Brewing Co. is launching their third annual Home Brew Competition that encourages home brewers to submit their Best Brew!
The timing of the Competition ties in well with the National Home Brew Day, held annually on the first Saturday of May. That event brings together thousands of home brewers from around the world, all brewing the same beers simultaneously. More than 5,000 home brewers from North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and Australia are expected to participate this year.
Home brewers have been instrumental in the development and appreciation of craft beer around the world. Many Craft breweries have either been started by home brewers, or many have home brewers working in the brewing aspect of the business.
The winners will compete for cash prizes plus the bragging rights and opportunity to brew a full size batch alongside Railway City Brewing’s brewer. The winner will also have their signature identified on the bottles of their brew, which will also be featured as this year’s “Platform 14”, one of Railway City’s Seasonal offerings to be released later in July.
Recognizing the Home Brewers and providing them a platform to create something special. The creative process is alive and well throughout the craft brewing industry.
“Railway City is proud to share the spotlight and provide a Platform for the home brewer! Creating interesting and delicious brews is something we strive for, and we know the home brewers share this passion as well.” Aaron Lycett, avid Home-brewer, and Railway City Brewing Co. - Retail Supervisor
This year’s Platform 14 - Homebrew competition begins now, and entries are required to be submitted by April 27th, 2014.
