Redlands’ Ritual Brewing Co. has released its Extra Red Ale in 22-ounce bottles.
This is the first release of the brewery’s year-round beers in bottle format.
The malt-heavy (it’s brewed with eight different malt varieties) beer is balanced with an abundance of hops.
Bottles of Extra Red are available at the brewery, 1315 Research Drive, and will be available at specialty stores in the near future.
Ritual also recently released its limited-edition Hellion, Ritual’s take on a Belgian-style Golden Ale. It’s also available at the brewery, at specialty stores and apparently at The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch.

The event is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Redlands’ Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has become the first one to go to the can…as well as the bottle.
