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.
