Thursday Tasting 2/26, 5-7pm: Beers of British Columbia

Posted Feb 25, 2015 in Beer, Breweries, Brewpubs, Events, Goings on, Seasonals

toquesSnow is coming, so it’s fitting we’re sampling beers from the snowy wonderland of British Columbia, Canada. Join us tomorrow 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the tasting room to sample beers from SteamworksParallel 49, and Howe Sound.

Steamworks Frambozen: “From Steamworks Brewing comes the Frambozen, a mild ale that uses raspberries, Pale and Munich Malts with Mt. Hood Hops. This Ruby red coloured beer is topped with two fingers of very quickly dispersing head leaving the glass clear of lacing. The smell is sweet and sour with strong raspberry tones taking charge in a raspberry juice like aroma.” [7.0% abv]

Parallel 49 Vow of Silence: “A Belgian-style dark strong ale that showcases notes of stone fruits and raisins. Dark amber in colour with a higher carbonation to keep the beer from feeling to heavy.” [9.8% abv]

Parallel 49 Toques of Hazzard: “An Imperial IPA made with wheat to keep the beer light bodied and a hazy white. Big hop flavours and aromas of tropical fruit and gooseberries from the Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.” [9.2% abv]

Howe Sound Wee Beastie: “A rich, malty Wee Heavy style Scotch ale, brewed with 100% barley malt, hops, water and yeast. Peated malt provides a subtle smokiness to this beer, while medium toasted American oak imparts a silky smoothness and additional complexity. Named in honour of Scottish poet Robbie Burns’ famous poem, To A Mouse, written in 1785. Wee, sleeket, cowran, tim’rous beastie, O, what panic’s in thy breastie! A brave big bodied ale!” [7.0% abv]

Howe Sound Megadestroyer: “As the name suggests, is not for the faint-hearted. This beer is a strong, hearty stout brewed in a very limited quantity a few times a year. It is brewed with seven different barley malts, blackstrap molasses, hops, water, yeast, licorice root and star anise. It has an intense depth of roast earthy flavour, with a pleasant licorice aroma.” [10.0% abv]

SexualChocolateThis week, join us and Tyler from Foothills Brewing for a four-beer flight, including Sexual Chocolate!

February IPA of The Month: “Meet Charlie The Corgi, whose impressive online following is matched only by his energy and “extreme cuteness”. To complement that robust personality, it only made sense to brew an IPA with bold experimental hops and a unique malt bill that, like Charlie, will lend a little sweetness to you life.” [6.5% abv]

Jade IPA: “Jade. Exotic jewel of the orient. Now a gem of an IPA. Bold, citrusy Pacific Jade hops lend striking tropical fruit notes and a hint of peppery finish to this easy-drinking IPA. Dry hop additions of Chinook and Citra add heady aroma and bold flavor. A special beer to charm the hop lover in you. Go ahead. Get Jaded.” [7.4% abv]

Foothills Stout: “Is there a more appropriately named beer style than stout? Dark, robust, opaquely possessive of heady aromas and rich fulfilling flavor, its name defines its assets. Ours is brewed with layers of roasted barley and black malts, and just enough flavor hops for a balanced smooth finish. By any definition, a superior beer.” [7.0% abv]

Sexual Chocolate: “A cocoa infused Imperial Stout. Opaque black in color with a dark brown head. Big chocolate aroma with notes of espresso, blackstrap molasses, dark sweet toffee and dark fruit. Smooth dark chocolate backbone with complex notes of coffee, dark toffee and dark fruit.” [9.75% abv]
