You haven’t heard from us for a while as we’ve been busy little elves working away at getting beer out the door and ready for the busy December holiday season. Happy to say we have our bottles back on liquor store shelves and you’ll find more Winterlong beer on tap around the city. Check out the latest locations Wayfarer Oyster House, Cruzair, Epic Pizza, Mount Sima and soon Earls!
December Beer Releases
Elf Central Witbier
Our latest beer release, Elf Central (4.5%), has hit the taps as of yesterday. A portion of the proceeds from growler and crowler fills will be going to the Whitehorse Firefighters Charitable Society’s Share the Spirit Yukon, a campaign that raises funds for families in need this Christmas season. ‘Elf Central’ happens to be the name of their Share the Spirit headquarters. We will be donating $2 from every large growler fill and $1 from small growler/crowler fill. A great reason to come give it a try.
It is a refreshing, lightly spiced, Belgian wheat beer brewed with coriander and cardamom, along with a witbier yeast. Other than at the Tasting Room you will be able to find it soon on tap also at the Wayferer Oyster House and the Dirty Northern.
Moonbase Freedom New England IPA
We were inspired to try out some new recipe ideas after our recent beer pilgrimage to New England this fall. Our latest creation, Moonbase Freedom New England IPA, features a different yeast and malt bill than our normal hazy offerings, with Vermont Ale Yeast and Maris Otter malt. Of course, we also wanted to play around with a new hop variety, so we added Strata to the mix of Mosaic and Galaxy. It is tasting great out of the fermenter and should be ready for the masses by late next week.
Guilt Trip Barleywine
Next week we’ll have our annual release of our Guilt Trip Barleywine. Just like Christmas, this beer comes once a year and is revered by hop heads and malty-beer lovers alike. Enjoyed fresh, this beer features a huge dry hop blast of Galaxy, Simcoe, Amarillo and Columbus. As the beer ages the hoppyness subsides and gives way to malty flavours of toffee, raisin and prune. The bottle release will roll out next week (likely Dec 11) and we may put a keg on when there’s a tap open.
