Here’s what we’re spending the baby food budget on this week…
Savage by Strange Fellows Brewing
6.0% ABV • 24 IBU • 750 mL bottles
Strange Fellows Brewing collaborated the good folks over at Farmhouse Fest (returning July 6 to UBC Farm—and if you haven’t got tickets, you’re too late) to create this wild saison commemorating the annual celebration of all things funky. This mixed fermentation farmhouse ale is brewed with spelt and rye grain and promises to be a bright, fruity little number with a tart finish. Here’s what Strange Fellows have to say about it:
“Complex and bright, this farmhouse beer was brewed with spelt and rye and aged with a multi-culture from a venerable Flemish Lambic brewery. A collaboration with Farmhouse Fest 2019, Savage is redolent of tropical fruit and ripe pineapple and has an underlying minerality and dry finish.”
If you want to get your hands (and tongue) on Savage but weren’t quick enough to snag tickets to Farmhouse Fest, Strange Fellows is hosting a release party at the brewery this Wednesday, July 3, from 5-8pm.
Fünf by Steel & Oak Brewing
8.1% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
Steel and Oak is celebrating its fifth anniversary with Fünf, a big, bold double IPA that’s the second of three anniversary beers the brewery is releasing. Packed full of Citra, Mosaic and Waimea hops for an “intense tropical aroma followed by a creamy, full bodied mouthfeel with pine and citrus notes,” according to the brewery. Fünf is only available for a limited time and only at the brewery’s tasting room in New Westminster. Make sure to come out on July 7th for Steel & Oak’s massive fifth anniversary blast, and grab a can or six while you’re at it!
On Three by Twin Sails Brewing
10.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
Twin Sails has brought back its 100 per cent lupulin powder Triple IPA by popular demand. Bursting with citrus and tropic fruit, On Three is loaded with huge amounts of Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic lupulin powder. “[This] was one of our favourite IPAs put out last year. We tweaked this batch slightly from last year by dropping the gravity a notch to increase the drinkability, and increased the whirlpool additions to provide a bit more balance to the beer. For 10% this beer is dangerously smooth and deceivingly refreshing to a TIPA. Drink fresh!”
