EDGERTON, Alta. — Ribstone Creek Brewery is preparing to unveil a new beer that promises to satisfy those thirsty for something with a bit more kick than your average brew.
Ribstone Creek staff have attended several beer shows and festivals over the past year and on several occasions beer fans have asked about the possibility of Ribstone Creek crafting its own Indian Pale Ale.
This month, Ribstone Creek brewmaster Anthony Richardson is pleased to introduce Buckin' Bronco — an unfiltered 7.5 per cent IPA.
“As a brewery based in small-town Alberta, we need to take the opportunity to show folks at the city beer shows that we are capable of producing something special.” said Richardson.
Ribstone Creek president Don Paré said the team is confident Buckin' Bronco will satisfy beer connoisseurs and casual beer drinkers alike.
“What better way to break in the new brewhouse than by producing a new beer?” said Paré. “With a 7.5 per cent alcohol content, we believe our Buckin' Bronco IPA has some serious kick.”
Paré also says producing small batches of 'limited-time' beers allows the brewmaster to have some fun experimenting with seasonal brews and other 'one offs' going forward.
Watch for Buckin' Bronco IPA by Ribstone Creek Brewery at the following events:
• Calgary Craft Beer Festival — May 3-4, 2013
• Edmonton Craft Beer Festival — June 14-15, 2013
And at the following locations:
• The National Beer Hall — Calgary
• The Underground — Edmonton
• Keg 'n' Cork — Edmonton
• Wine and Beyond — Edmonton
• The Honey Pot Eatery and Pub — Wainwright
Tasting notes:This IPA by Ribstone Creek pours into the glass with bright straw color and a frothy white head. The aroma is dominated by an arrangement of enjoyable flora scents. The first taste offers a slightly sweet flavour with a hint of pine accompanied by a smooth bitterness that delightfully lingers through until the end of the pint. As an unfiltered, 7.5 per cent beer, Buckin' Bronco IPA certainly provides bold, quality, all-natural IPA flavour.

April, 2013, EDGERTON — Ribstone Creek Brewery is working hard to meet demand as cans of Ribstone Creek Lager are flying off Alberta store shelves.
“We’ve got our canning line running full tilt and stores have been snapping them up as fast as we can make the beer to fill them,” said Ribstone Creek president Don Paré. “Demand is outpacing supply at the moment and we sure appreciate the excitement and interest.”
Ribstone Creek has been inundated with calls, emails, tweets and Facebook messages from beer fans anxious to get their hands on some cans.
Ribstone founders and staff are encouraging people to ask their local liquor stores to stock Ribstone Creek Lager, which can be ordered at any Alberta liquor retail location. Anxious beer seekers can also go online to www.liquorconnect.com to view which outlets are stocking cans of Ribstone Creek Lager.
“We’ve been blown away away by the response to the release of our first canned product,” said Rib- stone brewmaster Anthony Richardson. “It’s a real boost for me and the crew here to see so many people clamouring for our beer this early in the game. We know it’s great beer and it seems like the rest of the world has now caught on.”
