Fort Garry/Two Rivers (Russell) X Half Pints Brewing Co. Route 90
A special collaboration beer between Fort Garry Brewing and Half Pints Brewing Company. Route 90 is a simple yet sophisticated Austrian Lager with attractive copper colour tones and a fluffy, pillow like head. Its rich malt aroma and sweet yet spicy flavour make this a classic example of the style. Route 90 is best enjoyed the way it was made - connecting with friends. Available only in the Manitoba Social Pack - a mixed 12 pack with 3 different beers from each brewery plus 6 of the Route 90.
Your typical macrobrewed Dark Lager, often rendered dark with either brewer’s caramel or black patent malt, but each brewery will have a different approach. Aside from caramelly notes, these beers will not typically resemble other dark lager styles so much as they do the lighter styles, due to low amounts of hops, malt and body. Vienna as a beer style was theorized by Michael Jackson, but his oft-cited example was Negra Modelo, which is a macro dark lager like all the others. Some beers have taken on the idea of a Vienna lager as a distinct style, loosely based on the 1840 Anton Dreher beer, and these can be expected to be all-malt, with a fuller body and more character than the average macro dark.
