THB on CHCH's Morning Live

THB would like to thank Tim Bolen and all at CHCH for choosing to feature THB for four segments on their morning show, Morning Live on March 15th! A special thanks goes out to Shane McCartney and the staff of Saltlick Smokehouse for affording us the chance to tape the final segment at your spot!

Tim and Warren discussed many topics like THB's products, Blue Collar Pale Ale and the newly launched red ale, Riley Red as well as the trials and tribulations of establishing and running a contract brewery, and the great support THB has recieved from the craft beer scene in Hamilton.  Blue Collar and Riley Red can be found in many bars and restaurants in Hamilton.  Blue Collar is availible in many LCBO and groceier store locations while Riley Red is currently being submitted to the LCBO for a listing in their outlets.  

It was great fun on a very snowy day tapping these segments.  Tim and CHCH's staff really new how to make it a simple and fun process.  Thanks alot guys!

Riley Red is out now!

Riley Red is out now!!

THB's loooonnng overdue second year round beer is here!  Riley Red, named for Hamilton's oldest and most storied Infantry Regiment, the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry is a 4.5% slightly sweet red ale with a smooth body and nearly no hops on the finish.  The sweetness comes from caramel malt while the long smooth body comes from using oats in the boil. Riley Red will never be considered a hoppy beer at only 5 IBU but we are using a UK hop called Bramling Cross which has a subtle grassy/hay attribute that provides a clean finish on the pallet.  We hope you enjoy it!

Right now Riley Red is only availble in bars and restauants for now but we are submitting it to the LCBO for a year round lisiting.  If that goes through we estimate that it would be mid 4th quarter before it hits the shelves.  For now though please visit the bars and restaurants below to try Riley Red!
