Hot on the heels of the announcement that they were bringing Thomas Hardy’s Ale and other O’Hanlon’s beers to Ontario, word has come that import agents Roland + Russell have added Austrian brewery Schloss Eggenberg to their portfolio.
As with O’Hanlon’s, Eggenberg is known as a brewery that revived a classic strong beer: Samichlaus, a 14% abv Doppelbock that was once the strongest beer in the world. They also produce the slightly less potent Urbock 23°; MacQueens Nessie, which is brewed with Scottish Highland whisky malt; two unique liquors made by distilling beer; and several other brands.
UPDATE: Details on private ordering prices and availability of these beers have now been announced. All prices are for cases of 24 x 330 ml bottles:
Samichlaus – $84.00
Urbock 23 – $62.40
Doppel Bock Dunkel – $62.40
Mac Queens Nessie – $55.20
Eggenberger Hopfenkonig – $49.20
Spirit of Hemp – $55.92
Distilled spirits Samichlausbrand & Zigarrenbrand are also available. Interested customers are asked to contact Roland + Russell for more information – phone 416-801-9885 or 905-399-5885, or email email@example.com.
