Field House Pinot Noir Brut IPA... AND MORE new beer!

Wednesday might be a grumpy day for most people... being hump day... but for us Wednesdays usually mean new craft beer!!! This week was no different, we received a bunch of exciting new brews for you beer nerds. Here's the rundown:

FIELD HOUSE BREWING: Pinot Noir Brut IPA & Wild Sour Saison 

Field House has been KILLING IT this summer with brews that unite craft beer and WINE in style... so here's another one: The Pinot Noir Brut IPA. Brut IPA's are SUPER trendy right now, with the style popping up all over the place, and now Field House is in on the fun with a wine twist! We've also received their Wild Sour Saison, a beer in celebration of their 2nd anniversary!

PHANTOM: Virtuous Pineapple IPA

This is the first beer we've ever received that's a collaboration between a brewery (Phantom) and a PIZZA PLACE (Virtuous Pie). Phantom used the pizza flour from Virtuous Pie while brewing to make this a super hazy and bright IPA. Huge amounts of El Dorado hops are the source of the pineapple aroma. This beer should settle the debate about whether or not pineapple and pizza go together.  

 

 

RAVENS and DOANS collab: Excitebeer 

Complete with Nintendo 64 throwback cans, Excitebeer sounds like it's perfect for summer. This dry-hopped sour weisse comes in at just 4% ABV, with lightly-soured lemony-citric fruit sharpness adding to this totally crushable brew. Pick up a 4 pack and fire up the N-64!

Returning to our fridge... BRIDE BREWING: Side Cut NE IPA, Lemon Gin Saison, and The Fuzz Milkshake IPA

We've had all three of these brews from Bridge previously, but they were all so good that we had to bring them back! So whether you've had them in the past and would like to revisit, or they're new to you... try them out! 

Can I interest you in some CHOWDAH?

An old favourite has returned! Last summer we fell in love with "Hop Chowdah"... the New England-style Hazy IPA from Cannery Brewing in Penticton. Well, it's back and better than ever. 

Hop Chowdah is a BIG bomb of flavour. The juicy, tropical fruit flavours of Amarillo and Mosaic hops are balanced out with the bitterness that we all love in an IPA, creating a truly crushable brew. 

BONUS: Cannery did a rebranding on this one, and the new 4pk of tall cans features one of the most... unique... labels we've seen in a while. Come on in and check it out Hop Chowdah in our fridge!!

First Day of Summer!

Today is the longest day of the year AND the official first day of summer! So you know what that means... the perfect excuse to indulge in all the new summer craft beers that our store has to offer! And we have A LOT to offer right now. 

Seriously... it took hours to find room on our shelves for all this new stuff. But we did it, and the craft beer shelf is literally so full that it might collapse. Here's the rundown on all our new products!

PARKSIDE BREWING:

"DREAMBOAT" HAZY IPA

As we've said on the blog before, Hazy IPA's are THE thing right now. And this one might be one of the better ones we've come across. One of Danica's Top 3 from Vancouver Craft Beer Week a while back... we finally got it in store! Dreamboat is a fruity-hoppy-flavour-delight of a beer with major points for crushability.

FIELD HOUSE BREWING:

CUVEE BLANC FARMHOUSE ALE

CHAMOMILE BELGIAN BLANCHE

CHARDONNAY FARMHOUSE "WINE BEER"

That's right... THREE brand new brews from our neighbors down the road in Abbotsford. Field House is constantly upping the bar for creativity with their beer, and these three are no exception. Some crazy styles that nobody else is attempting... including their Chardonnay Farmhouse which is being described as "Wine Beer". Plus if you haven't been to their tasting room... you should seriously check it out. Have the duck tacos. You're welcome.

SPECTRUM BEER CO. 

HOT PINK LEMONADE SOUR

MISS TANJIE TANGERINE WHEAT

These are our first two beers from Spectrum Beer Co. and the first impression has been GREAT. Their website describes their beer as "beer for people who don't think they like beer", but it's definitely beer for people who like beer too!

YELLOW DOG BREWING: 

"GO GET IT" GINGER LIME GOSE

"TAKE A WALK" WIT

We are ALL stocked up on Yellow Dog, including summer faves "Go Get It" and "Take a Walk". The Ginger Lime Gose was a popular brew around our store LAST summer, with Danica buying probably 4 of the 5 flats we received herself... So come and get it! Before she drinks it all...
