Here’s what we’re trying to kill the coronavirus with this week…
Nuba Turmeric Ale by Faculty Brewing Co.
Spiced ale • 5.2% ABV • Draught only
This unique beer was a collab between Vancouver’s Faculty Brewing and Nuba restaurant and features fresh-pressed turmeric and ginger as well as coriander and cardamom for a bright, citrusy flavour with some added spice. To celebrate the launch, all four Nuba locations will be offering free samples from March 12-14, as well as pints available at the happy hour price of $5 from March 12-18. Faculty Brewing will also make its latest co-creation the centre of attention during its ongoing series of Experimental Beer Thursdays this Thursday, March 12.
Lutin by Strange Fellows Brewing
Wild Ale • 6.0% ABV • 18 IBU • 750 mL bottles
This dry, bright saison from East Vancouver’s Strange Fellows Brewing was aged in white wine barrels with a unique Brettanomyces yeast culture. According to the brewery, the result is a tart, complex wild ale with flavours reminiscent of white grape, bright fruit, and lemon/lime.
Ceres Mango Milkshake IPA by Cannery Brewing
Milkshake IPA • 4.8% ABV • 30 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
Penticton’s Cannery Brewing is celebrating women with the launch of a special beer made by the women on their team.
