Hope you all survived the chill! It’s nice to see the warmer weather finally show it’s face again, though for how long? Better take advantage of this with some summery beers! Come and grab all the session ales!
It’s a small order this week! A few sours and a couple IPAs have been rounded up to feature on the shelf, along with a new keg I’ll mention in a minute. In the meantime, here’s what’s in store this week!
Thorny Horn Raspberry sour by Phillips brewing: Thorny Horn is a raspberry brown ale lacto fermented. Fruity with robust malt along with a big sour kick. Thorny Horn was the first sour beer Phillips ever brewed, and it’s back! ($8.59 for a 650mL bottle)
Oud Bruin by Les Trois Mousquetaires: They make this Flanders brown inspired beer by blending a sour brown with a non-sour! Big notes of sour fruits and oak on a big caramelly brown ale. Big acidity comes across throughout the beer making it more sour than many true oud bruins! ($13.99 for a 750mL bottle)
IPA Project #1 by Collective Arts: This is the first in a series of IPAs being produced by Collective Arts. Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe and Citra are showcased in this tropical and floral, and super drinkable IPA.($4.09 for a 473mL can)
Oud Bruin by Wild Rose brewing: Mildly acetic with a rich malty base of chocolate and dark malt notes along with fruity berry tones and a zingy tartness throughout. ($12.29 for a 750mL bottle)
Radiant IPA by Hell’s Basement: Our favourite Medicine Hat brewers are back with this bright, tropical and floral IPA. Soft bready malts -which seem to be their style- give a nice and silky beer, with fruity hop notes all over, and a balanced bitterness on the end. ($16.99 for a 6-pack of cans)
So St. Patrick’s day is on its way, and I know what everyone will be coming in for… A pint of the black right? It pains me that so many need Guinness just for the sake of the holiday when there are so many stouts in Alberta that are soo sooo soooooo much better! Come visit me this Friday and I can personally show you each and every one. Not only that, but I have a keg of Irish red ale from Cold garden on the growler bar right now, growler fills of which will be on for 15% off all Friday until the keg is empty!
Once this keg is empty, on deck is a keg of Four Winds Apparition, their west coast white ale (White IPA) that is super citrusy, floral and overall delicious. You’re not going to want to miss it!
One more thought before I go. If you happen to be looking for something to do on Tuesday, March 28, I have 8 tickets left for my “Old school Vs. New” beer tasting. I’m going to take classic styles such as the Belgian tripel, IPA, and porter, and pit old brewers versus new brewers in a battle royale! $25 gets you tastes of up to 8 different beers and some delicious cheese and meat snacks from Peasant Cheese. Book online, or give us a call at the shop!
So that’s about all for now. Until next week,
