In a classic Belgian fashion, Brasserie de la Senne disregards tradition and make themselves a black IPA. It has a nice rich malty character with notes of chocolate to back up a solid bitterness.
Surprise, surpise! Persephone Brewing brings back the smoked porter. This one is not for the faint of heart. It has a rugged roasty and smokey character due to a hefty use of beechwood smoked malt and a variety of roasted malts. Cheers!
A nice and easy going Spanish red that is a classic blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes. Expect it to be ruby in colour, fruit forward, with warming notes from the alcohol and have a medium body.
Something new from Tree Brewing, a red lager! Think of it as having a bit more robustness of flavor, while retaining that clean, easy drinking taste you expect from a lager.
It’s here folks! Singularity! It braved the snowy weather today to be available to you. Even bigger and bolder than years past, this beauty clocks in at a whopping 13.2%. There are stouts and then there’s this one from Driftwood Brewery. Get it while we have it!
Behold! More Strathcona Beer! Coming in at opposite ends of the spectrum, there is an imperial IPA and a smoked porter. The Imperial IPA is a hoppy one!

Local Belgian inspired favorites Dageraad Brewing have brought back “Londen” a Canadian take on a Belgian rendition of an English porter to put it in their own words. It has a rich malt profile with subtle fruity and spicy notes from the Belgian yeast. Great for this time of year!
Pilsners can be a tricky beast since there is no hiding behind big hop flavour or quirky additives. Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery does it right with this unfiltered pilsner brewed with Pacifica and Motueka hops. No gimmicks here, just quality beer!
This beer from Townsite Brewing popped up as if from a fairy tale! A new version of “Lil’ Red” made in the Belgian style with candi sugar and fermented with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis.
A curious new brew from Category 12 Brewing. It is an IPA that has been refermented with Brettanomyces Trois in red wine barrels. All these elements combine to give you a deliciously complex beverage with that classic hint of funkiness and notes of tropical fruit. Magnificent!
