That's right, 'tis the season for Spruce Tip beer! Our first batch of Spruce Tip Seasonal Pale Ale (5 %) will be released this Saturday, June 8th starting at noon.
As usual, it will be available in 650 mL bombers and on draught. Heads up our Crowler machine is down currently, so plan on bringing your own growlers for draught fills to-go. Also this year we are doing double batches so that each batch doesn't sell out so fast. No need to panic if you can't get here on the release date, though bottles tend to sell out the fastest.
It takes a community to pick spruce tips.
For this beer we harvest spruce tips each spring, enough for several batches to last us through the summer months. It's a fun foraging activity we look forward to every year and requires expert timing and many hours of battling prickly spruce boughs. This year thankfully we had many little helping hands! With our recipe and brewing process we get a slight candy-like, citrusy sweetness and unique raspberry flavour out of the spruce tips, so it's not overwhelmingly piney or sappy. We hope you enjoy this years brews.
