Here’s what we’re comforting ourselves with this week while constantly doomscrolling…
Str8 Flexin’ by Twin Sails Brewing
Imperial Stout • 11.0% ABV • 473 mL tall cans
Port Moody’s Twin Sails Brewing has released the 2021 edition of Str8 Flexin’ and our liver will never be the same. Weighing in at a whopping 11.0% ABV, this bruiser of a beer is a big full-bodied stout with huge aromas of chocolate, espresso and vanilla. According to Twin Sails, “If you’re planning on aging any of our stouts from this winter, this would be the one.”

Mocha stout • 6.0 % ABV • 40 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
Maple Ridge’s Silver Valley Brewing has announced the return of its Dark Necessities Mocha Stout, made with Colombian origin cacao nibs and coffee from Smoking Gun Coffee. According to the brewery, this stout is rich, delicious, and pairs perfectly with a nice thick slice of chocolate cake. Available in tall cans in limited quantities while they last, either at the brewery or via Silver Valley’s online store.
Violet You’re Turning Violet by Backcountry Brewing
Blueberry pie sour ale • 5.5% ABV • 8 IBU • 473 mL tall cans
It’s the most marvelous blueberry pie you’ve ever tasted, courtesy of Squamish’s Backcountry Brewing. Hopefully it won’t turn you into a giant blueberry, but if it does, proceed to the nearest juicing room. Available Thursday, Jan. 21 exclusively at the brewery tasting room.
