Beer Mail #69: “Nice” Selection of New Craft Beers

Welcome to BEER MAIL #69! We’ve got a fresh selection of sours, IPAs and a massive Imperial Stout for a solid night cap.

Included in the package is one of the weirder ones we’ve carried, the Dill Pickle Gose from R&B! Great for offering a range of facial expressions and reaction from customers in-store, this beer is labelled as Strangely Refreshing.

Other refreshing Gose’s and Sours are a Passionfruit Gose from our friends in Powell River, Yuzu Gose from the sour experts at Ile Sauvage, Passionfruit Sour from Raven’s and a Berry Sour from Cannery in Penticton.

The Hazy IPA selection includes the latest from Superflux, Powell & Field House.

More exciting releases are the clean, crisp Euro-Pale-Lager from Slow Hand, & the Malawai from Dageraad, a collaboration with Vessel Packaging and Fivethousand Fingers for the Brewgooder Global Gathering, which was unfortunately cancelled during the current situation. $2.00 of every 4pk sold goes to support clean water infrastructure in Malawi, Africa.

We’re prepared to send this pack of 12 x 473ml box of craft beers to your door for $60.17Anywhere in BC!

Reminder – these packages are discounted 5% honoured by our Mix & Match tall can deal, encouraging variety.

Beer Mail #68: To Ontario & Beyond!(Sold-out)

Welcome to Beer Mail #68! We’ve got zero BC beers in this pack.

We’ve filled this package with 473ml cans of goodness from Ontario and from south of us in Washington State including an insane beer from New York.

A funny story about that one… a couple customers of ours here in Victoria, BC founded Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York back in 1997. They’ve since sold the brewery to Duvel, but Ommegang quickly became one of the most sought after producers when we received them back in the early 2010’s, especially the Hennepin Saison and the Three Philosophers Quadrupel which has been blended with a Belgian Kriek w Cherries. The beer we’ve put in this package is this very beer, but Bourbon Barrel Aged and in a rare format, 473ml tall can!

Continuing with beers from the US, Engine House No. 9 in Tacoma, Washington, known for bottle conditioned farmhouse ales and barrel aged fruited sour beers has released a limited series of Hazy IPA‘s, and we’ve got all 4 coming your way.

Also packaged is Olympia, Washington’s 3 Magnets Brewing with 2 Hazy IPA’s that are Similar But… Different. 

Now onto Ontario… Beamsville to be exact! Bench Brewing‘s 3 cans of refreshing styles to cleanse your palate from the heavy, unfiltered IPAs. A Belgian Pale Ale, a White Ale and a Session IPA.

We’re all familiar with Collective Arts now in BC, who have been consistently putting out incredible sour beers. One of our staff’s overall favourite beers, the Piña Colada Sour has loads of the juicy pineapple and hint of coconut on the sour finish. We’ve developed a new term in the shop amongst the staff, Certified Banger, which roughly translates into something like, “undeniably delicious” – and the Blueberry Cocoa Nib Sour was the first to be tagged with such a title.

We’re prepared to send this pack of 12 x 473ml box of craft beers to your door for $74.94Anywhere in BC!

Beer Mail #65: November Brews(Sold-out)

Our latest package contains some sweet, sour and hoppy as all heck.

Backcountry (Squamish, BC) has been releasing non-stop one-offs that leave you wanting more. Their latest releases in-store are the Suck It Cancer Pale Ale, which benefits the BC Cancer Foundation. Sporting an absolutely beautiful label, Suck It Cancer is a deliciously easy drinking juicy pale ale with a lightly dry, bitter finish. Great beer for a great cause.

Also featured is their Your Mom Goes To College (quoting the hilarious Kip from the movie Napoleon Dynamite) Boysenberry Pie Sour. A buttery sweet beer with a tart, sour finish.

A one, two punch and an added bonus with 3 Superflux beers. Their newest, Candyland, has just arrived. Designed to taste sweet, this beer is loaded with Raspberries and Vanilla to give it a cream soda-like character. Really refreshing and *fun*. Also featured is Pretty Much, Yeah, a collaboration with Portland, Oregon’s Gigantic Brewing. Packed full of hops and lactose, this hazy IPA is a deliciously creamy, cloudy, hop bomb! The third is a collaboration with Strange Fellows Brewing on Clark Drive. Super Strange Super Obvious is described as a “…. hoppy, hazy + spicy + can-conditioned too”. We tasted it to confirm that description.

A newer fresh hop release is R&B‘s Shadow Mountain Cascadian Dark IPA. A complex style with charred black malt notes and a fruity, hoppy mid-palate.

Boombox continues their hop train of releases with Secret Galaxies IPA. Tons of bright, complex hop notes and a full-mouthfeel add up for an awesome beer. Worth seeking out – but now you don’t have to.

A couple beers from out-of-Province! Import beers are becoming few and far between. We’ve been seeing the BC beer industry thrive to the point where other market’s releases aren’t as much of a draw to the consumer. There are still a number of gems out there, and we’ve included a new package size for one of our store’s favourite breweries, Brasserie Dunham. 473ml can of Beretta Special Bitter, super easy drinking with a malty sweetness and a dry finish. California is known for their craft beer dominance and we’ve finally seen some non-barrel aged products from Almanac! Their Love Hazy IPA is killer. Tropical, Lush & Juicy.
