Category 12 – Anomaly

Here is a big barrel aged Belgian brew from Category 12 Brewing. The barrel is bourbon, of course, which is strongly represented in the flavor. Also, notes of dark fruit, sweet vanilla, and coffee show throughout, along with hints of candied sugar and clove. Has a lovely complexity with something new to offer in every […]

Beau’s All Natural Beers

It has been a while, but we have some new Ontario beer! Beau’s All Natural Brewing prides itself on using organic ingredients to make high quality beers. There is a rye pale lagered ale. Sounds like a mouthfeel but we’re sure it is delicious! They also have a patersbier, which is a style of beer […]

Steel & Oak and Dageraad

Well, don’t these just look lovely. Coming in on opposite ends of the spectrum, they both have a lot to offer. Steel & Oak has done a blonde ale brewed with Ethiopian coffee beans, where the mild biscuity character of the malt helps to really bring the nuances of the beans to the forefront. Dageraad […]

SuperFlux – Colour & Shape

A spectacular new brew from the guys formerly known as Machine Ales. They have reincarnated as Superflux Beer Company! We are very excited about this one. This is the kind of IPA we dream about. Unfiltered so nothing of the greatness gets lost. It is soft, with lots of tropical fruit notes and a touch […]

How ‘Bout That Triple IPA

For this one Twin Sails Brewing teamed up with Parallel 49 Brewing to give us a big and boozy triple IPA. A wonderful combo of Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe hops make this a fruity and dangerously drinkable brew. How ’bout that!?

Line 39 Wines

For those of you who love big juicy reds, these wines from Line 39 out of California will be right up your alley. The Petite Sirah is big and intense with notes of dark fruit and oak. Great for paring with red meat. The Pinot Noir has a rich fruity quality with slight herbal notes. […]

Old Cellar Dweller 2016

Make some space in your cellars folks! You are going to want to fit one of these big and boisterous barley wines from Driftwood Brewery. Expect it to only get better with time.

Trading Post Brewing

Looks like Trading Post Brewing does bombers now too. The first is a style that is becoming a BC classic, the lovely Brett IPA! The perfect blend of fruity and hoppy. The other is a dark mild. Expect it to be a hint roasty, yet smooth and sessionable.

Todd Creek – Totenkopf

Looks like @todcreek made something special for BC Cider Week. It is a blend of a variety of different styles of cider that culminates into this fairly strong yet deeply complex beverage.

Modern Times – Universal Friend

Another beer with an interesting addition of wine grapes. This time a saison by @moderntimesbeer with added Pinot Noir grape must.
