Here’s what we’re blowing our EI cheque on this week…
Sandbar by Camp Beer Co.
Fruited gose • 4.7% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This salted sour wheat ale with strawberry and lime by Langley’s Camp Beer Co. will help you relive summer days on the patio when it’s pitch black and pouring rain at 4:30 in the afternoon. A little bit sweet, a little bit salty and a little bit tart, this fruity gose is all refreshment. Available at the brewery tasting room.
Turbo Lover by Backcountry Brewing
Coconut and hazelnut stout • 8.0% ABV • 40 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
This Judas Priest-referencing dessert stout from Squamish’s Backcountry Brewing features hazelnuts, coconuts and skin-tight leather, naturally. Available in cans and on draught only at the brewery.
First Blood by Mountainview Brewing
Imperial wheat ale • 7.5% ABV • 15 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
This big boozy blood orange wheat ale by Hope’s Mountainview Brewing pays homage to the most exciting thing to ever happen in Hope: the filming of the original Rambo flick, First Blood. This wheat ale goes down smooth while still packing a punch as big as John Rambo’s M16. Come down and try this one in person when Mountainview officially opens on Nov. 24.
