 Chef Series #3- Burnt Citrus Fruit.
R&B Brewing "Chef Series" is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between our head brewer Todd Graham and a select group of acclaimed local chefs. In partnership thy have created beers and dishes with complementary ingredients and flavours especially designed to be enjoyed together.

The chef for the third edition is Robert Belcham (pictured below), head chef and co-owner of Campagnolo on Main and Campagnolo Roma on Hastings.

This mild hopped Extra Special Bitter is ripe with citrus notes brought out with the use of Galaxy hops and the addition of burnt oranges, grapefruits and lemons. It is then filtered through 30 pounds of charcoaled pork bones. 
   



Dead Frog and Fuggles & Warlock Release Collaboration Red Rye IPA

​Aldergrove, BCDead Frog Brewery is pleased to announce the release of "Hyper Combo" Red Rye IPA, the first in a series of collaboration beers with Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks of Richmond, BC. This is the first time Dead Frog has collaborated with another craft brewer to produce a beer.

The beer's name and label are a fighting video game parody. A "combo" is a combination attack involving a string of sequential normal attacks. A "hyper combo" is a more powerful special move consisting of a chain of combos.

"I wanted to make a beer that was malty, yet balanced; strong, but deceivingly so," said Dan "Fuggles" Colyer of Fuggles & Warlock. "Dry-hopping with Citra, Amarillo, and Galaxy gave a burst of citrus aroma that balanced the aggressive bittering very well."

Steve Black, Dead Frog's brewer, enjoyed the partnership with Fuggles & Warlock. "It was a blast working with those guys! My contribution was to add rye, which imparts a spiciness that I really like in beer. It gave the ale an interesting Belgian-like quality."

The Hyper Combo Red Rye IPA is a robust, medium-bodied dark amber ale with the aroma of citrus, bread, and honey. A burst of lemon gives way to tropical fruit, then a tingling spiciness that slowly fades into a dry, lingering finish.
