Welcome to Beermail # 95: Rad Dad Box
With Fathers day coming up this weekend, we decided to theme this box around the special guys in our lives. This box brings together a menage of tradtiional styles that the old school Dads can appreciate, with a few things to satisfy the Beer Nerd Dads out there as well (and maybe broaden some Dad’s Beer horizons)
First up in the box, we have a new hazy double from Beere, Sitcom Reference. The name seem to suggest a dad joke, and we’ve been loving the hazy IPAs coming from these guys in North Van, so this one was a no brainer.
Next we have a lighter offering from our friends at Dageraad, Peer! Peer is a beer made with Pear and Cardamom, with an almost cider like feel, perfect for the hot weather barbecue Dad!
Coming back home to the island we have a classic Cream Ale from Gladstone, and a pair of beers from in-town favourites Ile Sauvage. There’s Grisette, which is their take on a lighter Belgian saison, and Sitka, which is a spruce tip sour that is an instant west coast classic.
Now we come to our farthest afield brews, which come to us from Portland’s Great Notion. Aura is a hazy IPA with a round tropical feel, while Blueberry Muffin is a tart ale with an eerie resemblance to the baked good that gives it its name. These are more on the Beer nerd Dad front, but I think there’s something anyone can appreciate in there as well.
Moody’s Lingoncherry Sour utilizes two of the West Coast’s most iconic fruits in their new sour sure to tantalize the palate! Persephone, on the other hand, contributes an easy drinking IPA in Morning Mist!
Rounding out the box, we have three more brews from the mainland. Ravens Two to Tango is a Mango Jalapeno sour which is juicy, light, with just a hint of heat! A bit of a boundary pusher, but has potential to be Dad’s new favourite if I dare say so! We’ll end things on a more classic note with a Golden Munich Lager from Slowhand and a fresh batch of Superflux Manana!
Happy Fathers Day to all, and to all a tasty brew!
