Our Latest Hop-enings!

KEVIN WILSON - As a true dedicated student of craft brewing he cut his teeth on home brewing back before the term "Craft Brewing" was coined and good beer was hard to find. In 2012 Kevin started working at Russell, Kevin's skills as a head brewer are recognized and put to the test. His brew of the Angry Scotch Ale received a gold medal at the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards. Kevin and his team keep coming up with innovative, creative and fearless beers.

DEC 14, 2015 - Timbertrain Coffee Stout

Timbertrain Coffee Roasters provided us with some beautifully roasted beans from the Colombia Tolima Region. The coffee is grown in the area with the altitude being 1,500 - 1,700 meters above sea level. Once the coffee cherry is picked, it is pulped, fermented in tile tanks, washed and dried on raised beds. The coffee tends to taste nutty, fruity, creamy body and clean lingering acidity.

We brewed a nicely balanced Stout with 3 different dark roasted malts to accentuate the coffee. The beer was brewed with a little less bitterness and hops than we would used ordinarily. This is to make a smooth product that is full of flavor but easy to drink. We then blended in the coffee which was cold brewed at a very concentrated rate to enhance, rather than dilute the beer flavors.

Best beer I've ever had in Canada. Russel Punchbowl IPA. Citra, mosaic, and amarillo hops. The scenery makes it that much better. @damullens #banff #russellbrewing
