Spring Beers Tasting – Thursday March 27

With spring in the air (at least metaphorically) and the season changing, it’s to to turn our focus to refreshing spring beers. We opened a selection of beers ranging from Lagers and Belgian style ales to IPAs and an oak aged stout. Our resident Nuclear Physicist and Beer Expert Marty Rozon lead our guests through the following lineup:

  1. Rogue Keels Irish Style Lager – A European style pilsner brewed with Great Western 2-row and French Carapilsner malt, Sterling Hops and Czech pilsner yeast. – $8.49/650ml
  2. Moa Reserve Blanc Evolution – A Belgian style white beer, bottle refermented with a small amount of coriander added during maturation. – $6.79/375ml
  3. Alameda Klickitat Pale Ale - An amber coloured brew with a perfect balance of caramel malt and spicy hop flavours. Munich malt lends a rich mouth feel, while generous amounts of northwest hops complete the balance. - $8.09/650ml
  4. Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate – The third edition of the Voodoo series is a brown ale with big notes of chocolate and raspberry on both the nose and palate. It is biscuity with notes of salty pretzel on the finish. – $13.99/650ml
  5. Muskoka Detour Session IPA – The relatively low alcohol make this a great session beer, while the big hop flavours give it a fresh aroma and a clean finish. – $15.49/6 Pack
  6. The Bruery Tart of Darkness – This stout is aged in barrels with wild yeasts to add layers and depth. Reasonably low alcohol at 5%, it is fruity with some tart flavours. – $22.66/750ml
