Here’s what we’re drinking at 10am in our living room this week…
7 O’clock Cheer Pale Ale by Steamworks Brewery
Pale ale • 5.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
Burnaby’s Steamworks Brewery has teamed up with the Vancouver General Hospital Foundation to release a new pale ale with proceeds donated to fight COVID-19. Named after the nightly ritual of banging pots and pans in honour of healthcare workers who are putting their lives on the line during the COVID-19 crisis, 100% of the net proceeds from 7 O’clock Cheer will be donated to the VGH Foundation for COVID-19 response and research. Ingredients and labels were donated by Hops Connect, Gambrinus Malting and Westkey Graphics.
Woodland Farmhouse Cider by Strange Fellows Brewing
Old world cider • 6.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
East Van’s Strange Fellows Brewing has released its very first cider, Woodland Farmhouse Cider. Made with a blend of both traditional English cider apples and new world varietals, Woodland Farmhouse Cider promises to be aromatic, bright and refreshing. The addition of Porter’s Perfection, a classic old world cider apple grown in Cawston, B.C., helps create a strong tannic character. Available at Strange Fellows Brewing for take out and for home delivery
Marigold by Superflux Beer Co.
Pale ale • 5.5% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
This new pale ale from East Van’s Superflux is made with Mosaic and Nelson hops for a fresh fruity and floral flavour. According to the brewery, “at 5.5%, Marigold is not only one of our lighter offerings but likely our most balanced hoppy beer to date… if you’re into that kinda thing.” Available for order online for delivery or pick-up at Strathcona Beer Co.
