Here’s what we’re spending our COVID-19 unemployment benefit on this week…
Sovereign Super Saison by Four Winds Brewing
Saison • 8.5% ABV • 20 IBU • 750 mL bottles
Delta’s Four Winds Brewing has re-released its classic imperial saison, Sovereign, for the first time in four years and we couldn’t be happier. This mixed fermentation dry-hopped farmhouse ale clocks in at a whopping 8.5% ABV and offers aromas of candied orange and red apple, with complex flavours of fruity esters, elderflower and spice. Four Winds’ beers are available for delivery locally and provincewide here.
Victoria Pilsner by Vancouver Island Brewing
Pilsner • 5.5% ABV • 41 IBU • 355 mL cans
Vancouver Island Brewing has reformulated one of its flagship beers, replacing its Dortmunder-style Victoria Lager with Victoria Pilsner, a German-style pilsner. Victoria Pilsner is a rich, full-bodied beer with an assertive hop bite. Available for delivery in the Greater Victoria area here.
Moon Rabbit by Strange Fellows Brewing
Saison • 6.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This Szechuan pepper saison from East Vancouver’s Strange Fellows Brewing promises to be bright, peppery and refreshing, with notes of citrus and spice. Available for home delivery in the Vancouver area here.
