2. Howe Sound King Heffy Imperial Hefeweizen – a weizenbock beer with rich flavours of banana, yeast, spice and citrus. Refreshing and tasty. – $10.79

3. Le Trou Du Diable Four Surfers of the Apocalypso – a white IPA brewed with Belgian hops but with an American style IPA recipe. Aromas of resin, sweet, lychee and pear. – $7.49

4. Gigantic Firebird Rauchweizen – a smoked German style hefeweizen using malt smoked over beechwood giving a light smokiness mixing with the clove and banana aromas. – $8.19
