We are at the end of summer and a bunch of new fall & winter beers will be arriving weekly so stay tuned for our next post and enjoy this new one while you wait. Cheers!
GET THIS BEER IN A MY BELLY
This beer will make you feel like you’re relaxing on a tropical oasis away from all of your troubles. This Fruit Smoothie IPA from Foamer’s Folly Brewing boasts a citrusy and light bitter taste. You’ll smell fresh guavas while taking your first sip and it’ll all be hazy from there. The IBU (international bitterness unit) is 67 which is just hoppy enough to get your day started! We carry this beer in a 4 pack of tall cans available nice and chilled in our walk-in fridge. Nothing beats a cold fruit smoothie ipa, so let’s get this beer IN A OUR BELLIES!
PUCKER UP WITH OUR NEIGHBORS
Another 4-pack mixer on our hands here and this one is made by our friends at Old Yale Brewing. The Black Currant Ginger Sour is nice and tart with a subtle sweetness and a hint of ginger at the end of each sip. The Raspberry Lemon Berliner Weisse is also tart which is what makes this the perfect mix pack if you’re into tart beers! It boasts a juicy fruity flavor that will have you puckering up to your next can of beer or maybe even your drinking buddy!
THIS BEER WILL MAKE YOUR CLOTHES FALL OFF…YOU SLY FOX
Two new 6-packs from Main St. Brewing! We have a Kettle Sour Fruit Bomb and a Naked Fox IPA and I’m here to tell you all about it. The Kettle Sour packs a tart punch of lime, grapefruit, lemon, mango, and peach…one might say that it’s explosive. If you like your hops then you’ll enjoy the Naked Fox IPA. It’s main goal is to by sly and dry which allows for the North American & Southern Hemisphere hops to shine through.
DRINKING BEERS, PLANTING TREES
Stanley Park Brewing collaborated with TenTree apparel to help reforest areas affected by the BC wildfires. Every beer you drink will help to accomplish this reforesting goal so you better get drinking you tree hugger! This hazy IPA not only plants tree but it’s actually pretty tasty too. It goes down nice and smooth and exudes tropical and citrus notes until the very end. Check out the video that they put together for this brew: https://youtu.be/QZXd2BkasHE
DON’T TRY READING THIS CAN WHILE DRUNK
The perfect pale ale to try if you’re new to beer. This pale from Boombox Brewing has lots of juicy citrus notes and a medium bitterness level. Vic Secret, Azacca, and Sabro hops are heavily used in this low ABV brew. Grab your boombox and dance with this can in your hand…trust me you’ll want to.
WHO SAID THAT JAM ONLY BELONGS ON TOAST? IF YOU ASK ME, I’D RATHER DRINK IT
This isn’t your grandma’s apricot jam! Fresh apricots from Keremeos B.C. were jammed into this beer to make it a juicy and bitter brew. There’s a perfect balance of sweet and bitter between the milk sugar and hops that were used to create this beer. This brew is my jam and it will be yours too I promise.
ARE YOU SEEING DOUBLE?!
This 4-pack from Deadfrog Brewery is a mix pack which means you get two of each brew. Let’s start with the Double Cross Pale Ale. This beer is the perfect pale for anybody who likes a bit of a citrus kick to their brews. It’s golden in color and crisp on the taste buds, it’s basically one of those beers you could easily have multiple of ;) Now let’s talk hazy. This Purple Haze is made with juicy local hops that exude citrus, blackberry, and melon while still have that delicious bitter finish. This will have you seeing double and that’s a good thing!
FEELING HIGH ON LIFE
Incidents & Accidents Brewing is back at it again with their plant terpene infused beverages. This beer is not infused with any marijuana however, it is made to smell and taste like cannabis. Crack open the can and you will instantly recognize the smell of cannabis, keep drinking and you will be pleased to meet subtle and sweet cherry notes dancing on your taste buds. Cheers to being high on life!
“IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN…BEER CHARLIE BROWN!”
It’s that time of year again and I couldn’t be more excited. Our first pumpkin beer up on the shelves is this brew from St. Ambroise and it comes in a single tall can. This brew is the perfect sipper to have while snuggled up by the fire with your friends. It’s medium bodied with notes of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and pumpkin… if that doesn’t make you want to jump into a pile of leaves than I don’t know what will.
STOP! IT’S HAMMOCK TIME
Two new easy going 6-pack brews from Tree Brewing! Their Hammock Time Honey Pilsner is golden, refreshing and carries subtle flavors of honey which brings us to the Day Trippin’ Copper Ale which is smooth, balanced and overall an easy going beer. The nice thing about these brews is that they are the perfect beer to drink multiple of, you can easily find yourself enjoying each and every can of that delicious, golden, balanced, and smooth brewskie from Tree Brewing.
LOOK DEEP INTO THIS CAN AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR REFLECTION
Mirror, mirror on the can whose the coolest of them all? Another brew from Boombox Brewing called Reflector Hoppy Lager. This beer is slightly hazy, a little juicy and boasts notes of stone fruit with just a slight bitter finish from those delicious hops. Look deep into this can… are you feeling drunk yet?
CAUTION: BLACKBERRIES WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS BEER
Try this, you must. This beer is packed with blackberries and I noticed that right away. It reminded me of blackberry yogurt with some slight sour notes and it all came together nicely. Not only is the flavor of this brew delicious but it pours an opaque hot pink color which made me super happy… maybe I drank too much? Bombs away!
