New Brew – Lemon Balm Pale Ale

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)

Back by popular demand!  Ed’s Lemon Balm Pale Ale was so well received, he’s brewing another batch.  This crisp refreshing pale ale, has 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.  Ed has brewed up a batch and it’s currently available for sale only at Black Creek Historic Brewery located in the heart of Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto, Ontario, and available again only for a very limited time (until the barrel is empty!).
