More beer means more blog posts… because we have to keep you up to date somehow! It’s easy to get some new beers lost in the shuffle, but that’s what we are here for! To get a fresh scoop on our newest craft beers at Lickman Liquor… keep checking back each week!
DRINK TODAY, DO EVERY THING ELSE TOMORROW
Apparently mañana means “tomorrow” in Spanish, but trust me — I don’t think they meant wait until tomorrow... because you need to pick up this brew TODAY. Superflux really hit the money with this hazy IPA. Mañana has tasty notes of grapefruit, blueberry jam and pineapple with earthy undertones. This brew is incredibly strong, juicy and just the perfect amount of hazy. The cotton candy aesthetic of these cans really hits it home and appeals to all the senses. I would hurry if I were you… this beer is almost completely out in our store. Don’t wait until mañana! Pick it up today.
(LEMON)DROP ME OFF AT LICKMAN LIQUOR STORE
Our neighbours in the states sent us their limited release just in time for the sunny Spring we’ve got in store. Odin Brewing, located in Tukwila, Washington, has become one of our favourite local(ish) breweries. Their Lemondrop Kettle Sour is everything that we want for our Spring drink. It’s lightly tart, making for an easy drink, made with Lemondrop hops and they even threw in some lemon peel for added zest. This bright and sunny kettle sour has us dreaming of Summer but loving Spring. Come grab one of these 6 packs STAT!
BRING THE BEACH HOME ON A RAINY DAY
Vancouver Island Brewing did a collab with Mount Arrowsmith and what came out of it was a deliciously unique brew that gives you all the benefits of the beach without the sand in your pants. Their “Castles in the Sand” Pineapple & Pink Peppercorn Saison combines fruity and spicy to give you a new take on a refreshing summer beer. They say it reminds you of a ‘beach fire roasted pineapple and an afternoon cocktail’ — perfect for enjoying on the beach or at home to make you think you are at one.
EASY DRINKING THAT MAKES YOU LOOK A LITTLE TUFF
Ever since we started carrying Tofino Brewing several months ago in our store, they have been flying off the shelves! Their Tuff Session Ale that we’ve brought into our store has got to be another fan favorite. This pale ale is clean, crisp, and easy to drink with the sweet aromas of chocolate, malt, and even a bit of floral. It’s just a little hoppy with its Pacific Northwest hops, which I think is the perfect balance to making this brew so tasty. I think it’s safe to say this one leaves you wanting more… and that’s most definitely okay with me.
HEAD IN THE CLOUDS WITH A BEER IN MY HAND
Category 12’s latest addition to their “Data” collection has arrived in stores just this week and we are excited to have it on our shelves! The Limited Edition Cloud Data Hazy White IPA has a pillowly feel on your mouth just like you would expect if you were drinking clouds… of beer. It has strong flavours of citrus, tropical fruit, and berries all in one sip. This brew has a malt base of wheat and oats that is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain, and hopped with Amarillo hops. I can’t think of a more perfect concoction for Spring.
FALL IN LOVE AGAIN WITH STRATHCONA BEER
We are SO excited to welcome Strathcona Beer Company from East Vancouver to our liquor store! We brought in three of their grooviest brews for you to get acquainted with your newest love. Love Buzz Cherry Sour is just as enticing as it sounds. It's packed with sweet and sour dark cherries with hints of vanilla and lactose to make for a light sour with a tart finish.
