Craft Beer Tasting Notes: April 20

Looks like we’re finally heading toward lighter-bodied seasonal brews, even though it still seems like spring is only just now upon us. Plenty of new options in stock. If you’re a fan of the gose style, a slightly salty and tart wheat beer, you’ve gotta try the new Field House Sour Wheat Gose, which is one of the tastiest interpretations of the style we’ve ever had. It’s incredibly refreshing.

Beer Mail #38: Spring Has Sprung!

A fresh box of BEER MAIL will brighten even the dreariest early spring day. We have some cool new seasonal beers from across BC packed into this reasonably priced box. There’s a little something for every craft beer palate. We have a few Belgian-style brews from Fernie, R&B and Driftwood, with interesting spice and fruit notes. If you like hoppy beers, we have two interesting takes on the IPASalt Spring Earl Grey IPA and Steamworks Tart IPA. And if you want a quintessential West Coast brew you’ve gotta check out the Steel & Oak Kataja Juniper Ale, with fresh gin and tonic-like notes. Hopefully sunny spring weather is on the way, but this case of 12 large-format bottles* (two of each beer) will lift your spirits in the meantime and is available for $103.5 + shipping. 

We offer a flat shipping charge of just $25 for 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.

Beer Mail #37: Fresh Flavours(Sold-out)

We like to throw a few surprises into every new BEER MAIL box, and our latest is no exception. Since we have added a flower shop (Cook St. Greenery) to our new store, we had to include the Powell Flower Shop Saison brewed with chamomile. Along those same lines we have Strange Fellows Tigertail Saison brewed with lemongrass and star anise. And if you like the darker beers, the Steamworks Salted Porter offers a nice sweet/savoury balance. And Steel & Oak Kaffee Coffee Blonde has all the rich flavours of fresh brewed coffee in a light-bodied, easy-drinking blonde ale. So many great falvours in this one box, which includes a total of 12 large-format bottles* (two of each beer) and is available for $110 + shipping.

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: March 27

Where did the month go? Our big move, culminating in us opening the doors at 304 Cook St. on Wednesday, March 14, shifted our focus away from some of our regular routines. Now that we’re up and running, we can get back to some of the tasks that were neglected. New product, of course, has continued to pour in, so we have an extra-long lineup of tasting notes this week.
