RIOT’S WOODSTOCK LAGER

CREATIVITY IS WORK. AT RIOT BEER WE ARE RELENTLESS IN OUR EFFORTS TO FIND THE PERFECTLY BALANCED RECIPE TO PRODUCE NEW, EDGY AND DISTINCTIVE BEERS THAT CAN BOTH BE ADMIRED AS WELL AS DOWNED ON A HOT SUMMERS DAY!!

APPARENTLY ITS HARD TO MAKE A WORLD CLASS LAGER. OF COURSE WE WERE GOING TO TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE. THAT’S HOW WE ROLL. THAT SAID, NEVER WILL IT BE “JUST A LAGER” AT RIOT. WE’VE JACKED IT UP ON MALTS, PUT HOPS IN (YES WE DID!) AND LEFT IT WITH A LIGHT CARAMEL FINISH. DONT WORRY THE WORLD WONT END..

#HOPHEAD

DON’T BE SCARED, HOPS CAN’T KILL YOU, THEY JUST KEEP BEER ON AN EDGE!

A RANGE OF LIMITED ADDITION SINGLE HOP IPA’S THAT WILL HAVE HOP HEADS JUMPING AROUND LIKE LITTLE BUNNIES IN SPRING TIME. THE FEATURED HOP IS MULTI-PURPOSED AS A BITTERING, AROMA AND DRY HOP TO CREATE A BEER THAT CELEBRATES ALL THE PERSONALITY AND FLAVOUR THAT HOP CAN OFFER. OF COURSE THEY’RE ALL WEST COAST USA STYLE IPA’S FOR ALL THE ABOVE REASONS.

Latest Edition – Falconer’s Flight (as in the hop) is our latest single hop bad boy, it punches a little lighter in flavour that its US cousins, but its all fruit bunch bowl still with that wonderful lingering bitter finish..

Next Edition – Southern Passion (our local South African hero hop) will be our last installment for the #HOPHEAD series of beer…don’t worry it will be back. This beer will be on showcase at the Cape Town Festival of Beer at the end of November 2016..come and check it out!

ONLY AVAILABLE AT RIOT LOCATIONS, AND SELECT BARS FOR LIMITED PERIODS. FOLLOW US ON TWITTER TO FIND OUT WHERE AND WHEN.
