Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. will release a new beer to help celebrate the 2013 Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati. Brewmaster Richard Dube will tap Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale at 6 p.m. July 1 at the Moerlein Lager House.
The beer will be a limited release, available at the music festival. Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale showcases the "characteristics of a traditional ale, while boasting the flavors and aromas of German noble hops," the brewer said in a news release. "The malty backbone imparted by Pilsner and Munich malts is accented by delicate floral and fruity notes, thanks to a generous late kettle hop addition and dry-hopping. The crisp, refreshing result makes Christian Moerlein's Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale a headliner at every venue."
"Bunbury Music Festival has already become one of the must-see concerts in Cincinnati and in the country, so we're excited to partner with them and create a special beer in honor of this great summer event," Christian Moerlein Brewing Chief Executive Officer Greg Hardman said in a prepared statement.
"What better way to celebrate our second annual event than with a special creation like the Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale,” festival organizer Bill Donabedian said in a prepared statement. "This is just the type of unique offering fans and attendees of Bunbury can expect, and I can't wait to try it myself."
To celebrate the tapping of this special beer, the Bunbury Music Festival is extending its “early bee” ticket pricing one more day, and will be selling tickets for $55 (one-day pass) and $110 (three-day pass) only at the tapping event. Regular pricing as of July 1 is $65 and $130.
