Here’s what we’re killing the Covid with this week…
6° by Dageraad Brewing
Belgian-style sour ale • 7.0% ABV • 650 mL bottles
This lightly soured dubbel was brewed with 400 pounds of Montmorency cherries. 6° promises to be “fruit-forward, [with a] rich and flavourful malt character giving a balanced structure while the tartness ensures the beer is never too heavy, always inviting the next sip.” Available at Dageraad’s Burnaby tasting room, online for local curbside delivery and Canada Post order provincewide and in select craft beer stores across B.C.
Pinky Tuscadero by Beere Brewing Co.
Raspberry Lemonade Sour Ale • 5.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This sour ale by North Vancouver’s Beere Brewing is loaded with a healthy dose of raspberry puree, a little lemon to add some zip and a touch of dry hops to add some citrusy complexity. Brewed with oats for a smooth body and fermented with kviek for a little something extra.
Cocolat by Andina Brewing
Toasted coconut and chocolate stout • 5.5% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This dark, rich oatmeal stout by East Vancouver’s Andina Brewing is brewed with British and Munich malts, plus smooth dark malts for a rich chocolate taste. After that, it’s loaded with toasted coconut and cocoa nibs to make it a real cold weather treat. Quantities are limited and sure to fly off the shelves again this year.
