Beermail #90: The Inception of Debauchery

Welcome to Beermail #90

We love our mainstays, the reliable brews you can always count on. The No-Brainer’s of the beer world if you will. However, there’s undeniably something uniquely exciting about the new. The latent promise of potential energy, of a cerebral vortex ready to be released at the pull of a tab.  Packed full of fresh releases, our newest rendition of Beermail helps get you one step closer to this promise and to that higher state of being.

Situated on either sides of the mighty Trans-Canada highway, Studio Brewing and Dageraad‘s Proximate Solitudes is a celebration. A dry-hopped multigrain pale ale brewed to honor the coming opening of Studio, it offers a delicate mix of funk and hops packaged in a serenely artistic way.

Hypha Project has been stunning us since breaking into the scene. With only a few releases under their belt they’ve made their intentions clear, and we can’t wait to see what comes next. Inceptional is a juicy hazy IPA, brewed with Vic Secret + Mosaic hops.

Maybe you’ve heard a whisper or two around, let’s just put them to rest. House of Funk has landed with some truly decadent indulgences. Debauchery is a very-limited Bourbon-barrel aged Imperial Milk Stout… mischief managed, or not.

From one of our perennial favorites Luppolo, we’re more than elated to bring you Precursor. A special edition Belgian-style Dubbel loaded with notes of stewed fruit, dates, figs, and candi sugar. Look for it’s barrel-aged cousin Evoluta down the line! Their Wild Saison w/ Pear is packed full of fresh pears from the Similkameen Valley. With a beautiful mélange of citrus, funk, and pears over an effervescent and bright base, it’s essentially spring in a can.

Backcountry Brewing are back at it again. With esoteric names and zany flavors, we just can’t get enough. Literally. Pulp Can Move Baby! is an orange and amaretto sour, with big citrus notes and a touch of sweetness. You Look Like You Live With Your Mother is a hazy IPA brewed with copious quantities of Mosaic and Eldorado hops.

Weaving ingredients into magic is no small feat, and yet Beere Brewing from North Van seems to do it effortlessly. Dream Sequence is their brand-new West Coast-ish IPA. In their words, “This is that crispy good dank stuff” and we’re more than prepared to take their word for it. Even Cowgirls Get the Bluebs is jammed full of blueberries, with a hint of lemon and dry-hops. Juicy, not too sour, and immensely refreshing!

One thing we can always get behind is a well-crafted lager. Something that’s clean and easy-drinking but still pleases the higher senses. Field House brings thing back to basics with a nod to brewing history. Vienna Especial Lager harkens back to the revival of this nuanced style with grace. Crush or consider.

Kicking off the transition to warmer days, Ile Sauvage‘s new Pamplemousse Grapefruit Gose is leading the pack in a refreshingly tart and citrusy way.

Rounding off the bunch, Ravens brings an ode to the Trappist tradition with Three Monks. A Belgian Tripel ringing in at 8.7%, it’s not messing around.

Wine Mail #24: Blue Grouse BC Wine Feature

Our February BC Wine Feature of the Month is Blue Grouse Estate Winery & Vineyard.

The Vancouver Island wine region staple underwent a big vineyard expansion in the last few years.

Blue Grouse Winery and Team have been planning their 26-acre vineyard expansion under Pedro Parra’s tutelage. They have been working with Señor Terroir for about 5 years now, starting with their first expansion, the Paula vineyard which was planted in 2017.  The Brunner Vineyard is the current expansion project and will have five varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and some Gamay Noir.  Planting started in 2020 and will continue this year in February and May.

Pedro Parra was born in Concepción, Chile, near Bio Bio and Itata, and he is raising his family there now. Pedro holds a PhD in terroir from the Paris Center of Agriculture, with six years’ experience in French terroirs.

Wine Mail #23: Bizou & Yukon + Narrative Wines

Our January BC Wine Feature of the Month is OCP’s new Bizou + Yukon wine line, alongside the benchmark Narrative Wines blended series.

Read more on the new label below!

The Ranch is a serious project and ultimately when the vines are mature the wines that come from there will be serious stuff. Yet the #1 question we get asked about is “how are Bizou + Yukon?” That got us thinking. Can we talk about what we are doing at The Ranch in a way that will resonate with all wine consumers, not just the Illuminati, and not just the 5% ers who geek out on wine? We sometimes forget to have fun and to be relatable to people who are just learning about wine.

DOGS WITH JOBS

Great Pyrenees are impossible to train, as they are bred to be independent and use their instincts over learned behaviour. They patrol whatever area is determined to be their space – in this case The Ranch. They protect animals, people and of course their food. At The Ranch, they have been set up to protect sheep.

BEHIND THE LABELS

The storyline began with Okanagan Crush Pad’s owner, Christine Coletta, wondering what the dogs got up to when she was not around. Each of these 12 labels has some significance that relates back to our program. The wine bottle tipping out to create a lake speaks to our nature conservation and restoration project. The giant insects roaming the fields depicts our annual beneficial insect release. We hope you enjoy discovering each one

BIZOU + YUKON SAVVY GRIS 2019
$2.00 OFF = $18.17 + tax & dep.
Here’s a nice idea to make Pinot Gris just a tad more interesting. Gooseberry hints up front, it starts out pretty classic Sauvignon Blanc, easy on the palate with some serious fruit intensity and mouthfeel, tropical fruit, grapefruit citrus with juicy acidity and a zesty close. A very refreshing drop.

BIZOU + YUKON PINKIE ROSÉ 2018
$2.00 OFF = $18.17 + tax & dep.
I’m still trying to figure out who Pinkie is. But never mind. This brings bright red berries up front with floral notes before a juicy and approachable, vibrant fresh strawberry palate. Great with ham and cold cuts. Definitely a ‘drink don’t think’ kind of pink that’s perfect for the soon-to-be-here dog days of summer.

BIZOU + YUKON SAVVY FRANC 2018
$2.00 OFF = $19.05 + tax & dep.
The blend is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that’s wild fermented in concrete. The nose shows a rich broth of bumbleberry, savoury raspberries, earth, anise and a floral note.
It has such lovely texture on the palate with polished tannins to go forward red berries, anise, licorice and a smooth delivery through the finis

NARRATIVE, MERLOT/CABERNET FRANC 2018
$3.00 OFF = $18.17 + tax & dep.
Our Narrative Red is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Expressing true Okanagan characteristics of red fruits with a distinctive herbal note. Soft tannins coupled with nicely balanced acidity make this an easy drinking wine on its own or paired with food.

NARRATIVE, WHITE 2017
$3.00 OFF = $17.30 + tax & dep.
Our Narrative White was crafted using Chardonnay, Viognier, Gewürztraminer and a touch of Riesling. The components were naturally fermented and aged separately for 8 months in both concrete and stainless steel tanks to give the wine great texture but maintain freshness and lively fruit flavours.

One of each of the wines is available from FREE local delivery with a total savings of $12.00 for $105.00 tax included.

  • Bizou + Yukon, 2019 Savvy Gris - 13% ABV
