Eleven Boroughs

Okay so this one may cause some debate. Not because of the beer, but because of the name.

First, the beer. Eleven Boroughs is an India Pale Ale. Which I’m told from a couple sources is a very popular style of beer these days. We’re going to make more of these. It’s time. We’ve waited long enough and to be honest I’d like something hoppy that I can take home out of the work fridge.

Eleven Boroughs is hopped with Mosaic, Equanot, Simcoe and Citra for a bright citrus aroma and a juicy tropical fruit flavour. We threw in some pilsner, oat and wheat malt and it swings in at an easy going 5.5% and 44 IBU.

Second, the name. This is where I’ll take the most heat from New West residents. We named this beer after the Eleven Boroughs of New West. Well, at least what I feel are the eleven true neighbourhoods of the Royal City.

The are as follows:

  1. Queensborough
  2. Connaught Heights
  3. West End
  4. Brow of the Hill
  5. Uptown
  6. Downtown
  7. Glenbrook
  8. Queens Park
  9. Victory Heights
  10. Sapperton
  11. Quayside

This can has caused much debate at the brewery about which neighbourhoods are on this list, which ones are lumped together in a larger neighbourhood, and which ones are left off, but we all agree it’s a great tasting beer.

Eleven Boroughs will be available in the Eleventh Borough today! (And yes, that means available at the brewery)

Cheers,

Jorden
