New Brew – Lemon Balm Pale Ale


Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Ed’s been hard at work brewing new recipes for us to try.  His latest effort is a Lemon Balm Pale Ale which will be a crisp refreshing pale ale, but with a hint of mint flavour and lemon aroma courtesy of the herb, Lemon Balm.  For those unfamiliar with lemon balm, it’s a bushy herb related to mint that is easily recognizable by the strong lemon smell given off by it’s crushed leaves.  In the past Lemon Balm was considered a healing and soothing plant, and especially effective in relieving pain due to indigestion.  Lemon balm was also used to impart a lemony taste and smell to many beverages and foods.  The Lemon Balm Pale Ale will be ready for sampling and sale beginning August 6th, 2010 only at Black Creek Historic Brewery located in the heart of Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto, Ontario, and available only for a very limited time (until the barrel is empty!)
