We have quite the exciting beer release line up for September and October. Mark your calendars!
LAST SPRUCE STANDING
It is that time of year again when our last Spruce Tip Seasonal Pale Ale of the 2018 will be released. For you crazy spruce heads out there, you won't want to miss the release date of Thursday, September 13th. We have 45 cases of bottles and lots on draught for you to celebrate this unique beer. Then it's a long winter until we're able to pick more fresh tips in Spring 2019.
BRINGING BACK AN OLD FAVOURITE
With the return of darker nights, we're bringing back our Nightshade Black IPA! This beer has been out of rotation for several months but was one of the beers in our regular line up in our early years and a favourite for many. Roasty and hoppy all in one, we're looking forward to putting a few of these back over the next few months. It will be available in bottles and on tap starting Thursday, September 13th.
NEW HAZY OFFERING
We've got a brand, spanking new beer coming out this weekend (Saturday, September 15). A Double New England Style IPA with rye malt. It's big and bad, with one of the thickest mashes we've ever encountered. The mash tun was stuffed to the brim with 2-row barley, malted rye, flaked rye and oats. We loaded it with Citra and Denali hop pellets and Vic Secret lupulin powder.
FRESH HOPS TAKE FLIGHT
At the end of August, we tried our hands at our first fresh hop beer. Fresh Cascade hops were picked the night before at Northwest Hop Farms in Chilliwack and sent up on Air North the next morning. We threw these green beauties into a special rye pale ale. This beer will be ready for sampling on tap hopefully sometime next week!
OUR FIRST COLLABORATION BREW
We're doing our first collaboration brew this weekend, with Michael from Category 12 Brewing out of Victoria, BC. We met Michael and his wife Karen back at the Yukon Beer Festival last fall and have kept in touch ever since. Michael is a mad scientist when it comes to brewing, with a doctorate in microbiology and biochemistry, so he's offered to bring up a cool yeast for us to use. Stay tuned for more info on this brew and be sure to get your tickets for the 5th Annual Yukon Beer Festival where it will be released!
BARREL AGED OFFERING
Our next barrel-aged beer release will be our Divine Intervention Tripel, aged many months in Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon barrels. It will be ready late September.
ON THE SOUR SIDE
We are currently on our last keg of Surfer Rosa Gose in the Tasting Room and are already sold out of bottles. But we'll be brewing up a batch of dry-hopped kettle sour soon. It will likely be released during the Yukon Beer Festival mid-October.
MORE DARK BREWS
With fall here, we'll be bringing back our Firebean Rye Coffee Porter as well as Log Splitter Smoked Porter. Look for these in late-October/November.
