Local brewers offer lots to sip

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 18/11/2017 (337 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

While I continue to try and mentally unpack my recent time in B.C.’s Okanagan Valley as part of the inaugural B.C. Wine Bootcamp — a series of in-depth workshops (and tastings) that completely changed the way I think about, see and taste B.C. wine — why not crack some new (or newish) beer and see what’s going on with local brewers?

Nonsuch Brewing has been making a bit of beer on Barn Hammer’s brewing system for the last little while; their saison has been on tap at the Common at The Forks Market for some time.

They’ve launched that product in a 750-millilitre bottle.

The Liquor Mart website has the product listed as $10 per bottle, and it should be available at most stores as well as select beer vendors imminently.

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 18/11/2017 (337 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

While I continue to try and mentally unpack my recent time in B.C.’s Okanagan Valley as part of the inaugural B.C. Wine Bootcamp — a series of in-depth workshops (and tastings) that completely changed the way I think about, see and taste B.C. wine — why not crack some new (or newish) beer and see what’s going on with local brewers?

Nonsuch Brewing has been making a bit of beer on Barn Hammer’s brewing system for the last little while; their saison has been on tap at the Common at The Forks Market for some time.

They’ve launched that product in a 750-millilitre bottle.

The Liquor Mart website has the product listed as $10 per bottle, and it should be available at most stores as well as select beer vendors imminently.

Nonsuch also has a new brew, a Belgian-style tripel, on tap at the Common.

Other hearty local seasonal releases continue to roll off the bottling and canning lines, and should be on tap or hitting shelves soon, if they aren’t already:

Barn Hammer has just brought back its Fur Trader winter ale, a dark ale that sees an addition of seasonal spices.

Fort Garry Brewing Co.’s St. Nick’s oaked-spiced porter is starting to hit select Liquor Mart shelves and should be at growler bars shortly as well.

Half Pints just released this year’s Humulus Ludicrous, a ripping double IPA that clocks in at eight per cent alcohol and a whopping 100 on the International Bitterness Unit (IBU) scale.

Lots of local seasonal releases are already on tap or on shelves and more are on the way. Plus, there are plenty worth trying.

Torque Brewing just got its Rabbit Punch black IPA into cans, and they should be on shelves soon.

Stone Angel Brewing just put its Mountjoy X Irish stout on tap at the Pembina Highway brewery last week.

Peg Beer Co. has a mild and slightly sweet milk brown ale on tap at the brew pub — while supplies last.

Trans Canada Brewing rolled out its coffee porter a couple of weeks ago, which is cold-steeped with Pilot Coffee beans sourced from Fools + Horses on Broadway.

Brazen Hall is rocking an oatmeal stout, while One Great City is currently pouring a milk stout.
