New beers – August 31, 2016

Hello once again fellow beer geeks!

I have another quick update for you all on new beers hitting our shelves! Without much delaying, here they are!

Lug Tread Ale by Beau’s Brewing: A light, but complex ale with the crispness of a lager. Flavours of crackers hay and fruit, with just the right amount of hops dancing all around it. All of Beau’s beers are crafted with certified organic ingredients and pure spring water! ($6.19 for a 600mL bottle)

Schieve Tabarnak by Le Trou Du Diable: This is a collaboration between Le Trou Du Duable and Brasserie de la Senne. A yeasty, fruity, mildly spicy Belgian style beer brewed with rye, and unique hops. Light, but with excellent malt character, and moderate to generous bitterness.  ($8.39 for a 600mL bottle)

Farmer’s Daughter pale by Half Hitch Brewing: A new brewery hailing from Cochrane Alberta, Half Hitch Brewing isn’t afraid to show their classic western roots. This pale ale is a light, easy drinking pale ale with just enough hops to quench that bitter thirst, but not too much to turn away hopophobics. ($15.29 for a 6-pack of cans)

Fire N’ Fury red by Half Hitch brewing: Their Red ale is a medium bodied, robust and bready ale with a rich malty character and a decent bitterness on the finish. ($15.29 for a 6-pack of cans)

Shotgun Wedding by Half Hitch brewing: This robust, complex brown ale boasts plenty of roasty, bready malts with light hints of smoke and chocolate. A well balanced bitterness wraps the whole thing up in one tasty package. ($15.99 for a 6-pack of cans)

Alongside all of those, we also received the latest batch of Gose from Driftwood Brewing! Last year it was named Gose-uh, this year they changed the name to “Cry me a river Gose” and changed the label to one of their more modern stylized ones. We also received a couple more of the strawberry and apricot Cascade fruit sour vertical packs. If you haven’t seen these yet, take a quick look, they are stunning sets of 1, 2, 3 and 4 year old fruit sours.

Finally, our fall tasting schedule has finally been released. Make sure to check out the beer tastings I’m hosting this fall, as they do fill up quick.

That’s all for now!
