Beauty is in the Eye of the Beer Holder

Happy Monday! I’m trying out a new thing this week… It’s called “being on time” but I’m just taking it out for a test drive — no promises that it will continue this way. Either way, enjoy this beer that’s coming in hot to our shelves.

I’M CRUSHING ON THIS SILVER VALLEY CRUSH HAZY PALE ALE

I’m crushing almost as hard on this beer as they crushed the hop juices into it, and trust me, if you taste it you’ll know there is A LOT. The flavour in this one is big as they brought in the hops late and dry to really crush that juicy citrus taste. Its smooth mouthfeel and lack of bitterness make this beer a go-to, crush-able Summer brew without losing the higher alcohol content with a decent 7%. Take on Summer with these brews and you’ll crush it.

IT MAY TAKE TWO TO TANGO, BUT IT TAKES ONE TO MANGO

…And that one is Ravens Brewing. Just like the spice of a good tango routine, this beer adds a kick of spice to your mango. This Two to Tango Mango Jalapeno Gose is a brand new limited edition beer of theirs adds just enough heat to the heat of Summer without pushing it too far. It’s not only a refreshing, fruity gose but it has the added balance of jalapeno notes to match the mango and just give you that hint of heat to your tongue at the end of your sip. Enjoy these on the hottest of days and you will not be disappointed by the refreshed feeling that comes after.

EVEN IF THIS BEER IS AS CLOSE TO SUPERMAN AS YOU GET, IT STILL COUNTS

Just like Superman, this beer is incredibly STRONG. If you’re in the business of looking for the strongest beer, you just might be in luck with this one. The Super Fearless Imperial IPA by Dead Frog is like the ghost pepper of hot sauces, this beer is almost as strong and bitter as they come with 9% alcohol and an IBU of 93. Bold and flavourful, this beer is packed with hops (dry hopped of course) and a good helping of malts to blow your socks off and leave you feeling as strong as this beer is.

THE CURE TO FEELING HAZY? TAKE ONE DOSE OF A HAZY IPA

Warning: this is not a real prescription, more like a suggestion… and not a good one if that. BUT, if you’re looking for a good beer, THAT’S what I can offer you. This Hazy IPA from Salt Spring Island is brand new and produces flavours that I’ve been dying to have: peach and grapefruit. With close to no bitterness and a ton of flavour, it’s Summer in a bottle. Unfiltered, unprocessed, straight to the bottle and into your stomach. Come get it!

YOU CAN BECOME AN EVERYDAY WARRIOR WITH THIS DIPA

Old Yale Brewing is gearing you up to crush every day of the week with their Weekend Warrior Double IPA. This one is a Limited Release that is back around for a second time so you’ll have to get all you can before it’s gone so that you can really make it through the week (and every week). This brew is packed with hops-a-plenty: Chinook, Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus deliver the piney and citrusy taste that this DIPA exudes. The hops will keep you jumping, with a little bit of malt to balance it all and keep your endurance high. Weekend or not, this beer is a treat.

JUST LIKE THEY SAY A JOKE IS A REAL KNEE SLAPPER, THIS BEER IS A REAL HEAD BANGER

Strathcona Beer Company came out with a new Triple IPA called Head Banger. This beer is made with a base of Weyermann Pilsner, golden oats, rye and malted oats. To bring in the real show stoppers, this beer is double dry hopped with five different hops and then it is fermented with a special blend of their secret yeast. It boasts flavours of sweet pear, cherry and tropical fruit and this strong beer will give you such a strong kick that it could leave you head banging all night, especially when drinking with the right people!

The Super Jupiter Mango ISA by Howe Sound Brewing is so refreshing and full of mango and tropical fruit flavour that you might not remember what planet you’re on… and that’s more than okay.
