Snow 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 Steamworks, Parallel 49, and Howe Sound.
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]
