Craft Beer Tasting Notes: March 18

Looks like Spring might actually be on its way! With the sunnier, (slightly) warmer temps, we’ve seen an increase in the lower-alcohol brews. More sours, more session ales. Two sours you should definitely check out are from Victoria’s own Ile Sauvage, their first outside-the-brewery tall can releases: Yuzu Gose and Raspberry Sour Golden Ale.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: March 13

We missed a week of tasting notes, so we’re back with a vengeance! Lots of new brews arrived in the last two weeks, with an emphasis on big, malty brews (three coffee imperial stouts!), IPAs and sours. There were some really interesting, style-busting beers in this batch.

Beer Mail #54: An Eclectic Mix-Pack

We got really picky with our latest BEER MAIL. We wanted to choose some interesting stuff from breweries that we may not have featured as much in previous offerings. Some of these breweries don’t do a lot of tall cans, or these are one-off releases that we will never see again (like the delicious Left Hand Chokecherry Saison). We have several U.S. brews in there, as well, this time. Style-wise you’ll truly get an eclectic offering ranging from fruity sours to hoppy pale ales and IPAs (and DIPAs, too!) to oatmeal stouts to the indescribable (a “rye & ginger” beer!) And the price for this quirky mixed 12-pack of tall cans is super reasonable! For just $57.05 plus shipping, we’ll send these 12 473ml beers anywhere in BC! If you live in Victoria, we’ll deliver it for free!

We offer a flat shipping charge of just $20 for Expedited Canada Post delivery anywhere in BC! FREE delivery to Victoria area addresses.

Remember, this box will only be available for two weeks, or until it’s sold out. Sorry, no substitutions.

Please note: Beer Mail orders can only be accepted from BC addresses. Orders must be placed during our hours of operation (10 am to 9 pm, 7 days a week), per liquor control and licensing terms and conditions.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Feb. 25

It was a surprisingly quiet week as far as new craft beer releases. Just a handful of new arrivals, but some good ones. Definitely check out the “new look” for Nelson Brewing on its brand new release, Passmore Pale Ale. This is a very modern take on the pale ale style—think juicy and tropical—and it’s available in 4pk tall cans featuring some really cool artwork.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Feb. 11

You’d never know that winter was still in full force with all these fruity IPAs and other fruity brews arriving. Despite the weather outside, the beer outlook is very sunny and tropical! We got some great new IPAs and pale ales as well as some brews (i.e. stouts!) more appropriate for the cold, snowy weather.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Feb. 6

This week’s newest arrivals were almost evenly divided between IPAs/hoppy beers and sours, with a Belgian-style dubbel thrown in for good measure! Tall cans continue to be the preferred format of both brewers and craft beer drinkers and we are doing our best to put more and more of them in our fridges! And don’t forget that when you buy 4 or more tall cans, you get a 5% discount!

Beer Mail #53: Superflux & Twin Sails Special!(Sold-out)

We’re trying something new with the latest BEER MAIL; we’re focusing on just two breweries: Superflux (Vancouver) and Twin Sails (Port Moody, BC). These two breweries have been consistently pumping out some of the most sought-after brews in BC. As you can see, they both focus on IPAs—and they both do them really well—but each release has a different twist. Some are hazy IPAs, or Double IPAs or are brewed with different hop varieties, while others are more traditional. The bottom line is that they are all great brews. In addition to the hoppy brews in this Beer Mail, there are a couple of big, malty stouts, so you get a little bit of variety beyond the IPAs these two breweries are known for. For just $65.85 plus shipping, we’ll send these 12 473ml beers anywhere in BC! If you live in Victoria, we’ll deliver it for free!

We offer a flat shipping charge of just $20 for Expedited Canada Post delivery anywhere in BC! FREE delivery to Victoria area addresses.

Remember, this box will only be available for two weeks, or until it’s sold out. Sorry, no substitutions.

Please note: Beer Mail orders can only be accepted from BC addresses. Orders must be placed during our hours of operation (10 am to 9 pm, 7 days a week), per liquor control and licensing terms and conditions.
