Beer Mail #34: Rare & Limited Edition Brews(Sold-out)

Going through our inventory recently, we realized we had a nice little selection of special limited-run brews that we could package up as our latest BEER MAIL. These are one-time buys for us, and as soon as they are gone, there’s no restocking. These beers represent cool offerings from some of our favorite North American breweries: Holy Mountain (Seattle), Twin Sails (BC), Superflux (BC), Upright (OR), Bellwoods (ON), Dunham (QC) and, of course, Driftwood. The only “theme” is that these are very special, hard-to-find beers. Please note, unlike previous Beer Mail offerings, most of these are 750ml bottles, except for Driftwood Singularity (650ml). 

Each box includes two 750ml bottles (except Singularity, which is 650ml) of each the six brews listed below for $220 + 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.

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.

  • 2 x Holy Mountain The Goat Oak Aged Farmhouse Ale 4.8% (Seattle, WA)
  • 2 x Dunham/Bellwoods Mahalo Parfait Raspberry Milkshake IPA 4.5% (QC/ON)
  • 2 x Dunham/Bellwoods Mahalo Parfait Papaya Hibiscus Milkshake IPA 4.5% (QC/ON)
  • 2 x Twin Sails Random Thoughts Farmhouse Ale w/Cherries & Blackberries 5.5% (BC)
  • 2 x Upright/Superflux Jacaranda Saison 6.25% (OR/BC)
  • 2 x Driftwood Singularity Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout 12% 650ml (BC)

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Jan. 22

We’re going full speed ahead on our move to our new location at 304 Cook Street, but that means that things are a little chaotic around the store at the moment. We’re still getting new product, though January does tend to be a little slower. And even though we have dismantled and moved our fridge to our new location, we still have some chilled product in some temporary fridges.

Yes, We’re Open!

If you’ve been in the store the last couple of weeks, you may have been taken aback by the state of things. Our wall-length fridge is now completely gone, and there are stacks of product everywhere. The lighting in the store seems dark now, largely because all the fridge lights are gone and there is no existing lighting in that part of the store.

Beer Mail #33: Rare Brews From Toronto’s Burdock Brew Pub(Sold-out)

If you’re a fan of saisons, sours and funky farmhouse ales, do not miss out on this one-of-a-kind BEER MAIL offering. As one of only a handful of retailers in BC to carry Burdock beers, we are offering an entire box full of these incredible brews as our latest Beer Mail. Burdock is a small Toronto brew pub that specializes in sours and mixed fermentation brews. These are incredibly complex and well made beers—frequently with the addition of fruit—that are amazing now and continue to age very gracefully. This brewery is so innovative and cutting edge, they have even “can conditioned” their iconic Tuesday Farmhouse ale, which means it was dosed with yeast prior to being sealed up so it went through an additional fermentation in the can for added flavour and carbonation. Please note, unlike previous Beer Mail offerings these are NOT 650ml bottles. The volume of each beer is indicated with the description below.

Each box includes two bottles (or cans) of each the six brews listed below for $155 + 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.

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.

  • 2 x Burdock Oria Sweet Cherry Sour Ale 4.8% (750ml)
  • 2 x Burdock Brett Farmhouse Ale 7.8% (375ml)
  • 2 x Burdock Tuesday Can Conditioned Farmhouse Ale 5.3% (355ml)
  • 2 x Burdock Tuesday Bottle Conditioned Farmhouse Ale 5.5% (375ml)
  • 2 x Burdock ERO II Wine Barrel Aged Farmhouse Ale 7.5% (375ml)
  • 2 x Burdock Oria Guava Sour Brett Saison 6.1% (375ml)

Craft Beer Tasting Notes: Dec. 29

Things have finally slowed down, as far as new releases, as we get closer to the end of 2017. We did get a couple of old favourites back from Four Winds and Hearthstone, and we also got a brand new one, ‘Old Red’ red ale, from new brewery Bad Dog, out in Sooke. Pick up something new to try in the new year! Start 2018 with a fresh palate.
