THESE BEERS LOVE LAYING IN THE SUN… JOIN THEM!

Our friends from Trading Post Brewery located in Langley brought us some of their amazing brews and we are excited to add this beautiful Belgian IPA that they crafted so perfectly to our shelves. Why have one style of beer when you can have two? A mix between a Belgian beer and an IPA, this beer is the best of both worlds with Belgian yeast and hops-a-plenty. Perfect for a rainy day inside or a BBQ outside in the hot sun. After all, they clearly like hanging out in the sun…

WHAT’S BETTER THAN A WINE AND BEER COMBO? TELL ME, I’LL WAIT

Yellow Dog is taking over our fridge this week with new Spring brews, and who is going to complain about that? If you are, well… don’t. This time, they teamed up with JoieFarm Winery, and all I can say is that this beer proves two heads are always better than one. Come by to try their new “Like Minds” Brett Saison with Gewurztraminer Grape Must. It’s Yellow Dog’s first barrel-aged wine/beer hybrid, paired perfectly with a mix of the fruity hops and white wine grapes. If you can’t choose which one, just have all-in-one… right?

IT’S A GOOD THING THAT BEER AGES WELL

Four Winds Brewing brought us their new seasonal beer Holz Pils Foeder Fermented Pilsner this week for those craft beer lovers that are in love with the Bavarian/Bohemian brewing methods from their past. To bring back the memories, Four Winds lagered their foeder fermented pilsner in wood barrels for 60 days to make for a smooth but crisp finish.

THE BEST KIND OF FRIENDSHIP BRACELET IS A BEER IN MY HAND

This is not a drill: we have another collaboration brew! Meet Yellow Dog x Four Wind’s collab brew: Friendship Bracelet Rustic Saison. What a fitting name, as clearly the best friendships come with a beer. This brand new limited edition beer is tart, rustic saison that is perfect for your day on the dock (yes, I think it’s already that time) with your buds. It’s the kind of beer that will stick around and hold you tight and brings a little bit of funk to your life, just like a good friend would do.

DRINK THIS BEER AND TRUST ME, YOU’LL BE LIVIN’ THE DREAM TOO

This can tells you all you need to know. You’ll be feeling like a flamingo with sunglasses on as soon as you take a sip of this refreshing, fruit-forward pale ale. Twin Sails Livin’ The Dream Fruited Pale Ale is all you need to pack in your cooler to head down to the lake. It’s bursting with pink guava, mango and blood orange flavours to give you a sort of tropical fruit punch. It’s a light, easy-drinking beer with a pillowy body to be your drinking buddy for the hot days or your reminder of what sun is for the less-than-hot days.

WHATEVER ORDER YOU’RE BORN IN, FIRST BJÖRN IS THE BEER FOR YOU

If you’ve ever been to the Phillips Brewing Tasting Room, you may have tried this one already - but they’ve finally let everyone else in on the goodness. First Björn Norwegian Table Beer is a light beer perfect for casual sipping. Made with Kveik yeast, this brew is unique and the result of years of Norwegian generations working to get it right. It’s clean and citrus-y, just how they’ve always liked it.

Have a safe trip home from wherever you’ve spent your weekend away!
