We're checking out a smorgasboard of BC beers this time - I love tall can singles!
From Townsite Brewing of Powell River, BC, it's Suncoast pale ale. This was highly enjoyable with the great hop flavour you expect from a pale ale, but not too bitter.
I had only had one Townsite prior to this, and I didn't like it. But it was an IPA and a long time ago, so good thing I didn't let that stop me from trying another.
Twin Sails is on Murray St. in Port Moody, BC, home of five excellent breweries all within a three block radius. Front Lawn Bench Press does not disappoint; it's really hoppy and has just the right amount of bitterness.
Twin Sails has just great branding and they love to make the hazy beers. I would highly recommend hitting up Port Moody as everyone there is killing it.
This collaboration is the 10th Anniversary of the Vancouver Beer Week celebration, made by Four Winds Brewing, Powell Brewery, and Dageraad Brewing. It's a dry-hopped saison, very light but not highly flavourful.
This was certainly good, but it really didn't knock me over.
Time for some Huge Citrus from Moody Ales, our second entry this week from Murray Street. It's maybe the least hazy Hazy IPA I've ever had. Still, it tastes great.
You really have to wonder about the process when a brewery makes a hazy beer and it comes out this clear. Does this mean they screwed up? It tastes fine, but this is clearly not hazy.
(see what I did there?)
Kidding of course - it's incredible how good the scene is here. And it's not just Vancouver either. Fernie, Nanaimo, Penticton, Kelowna, and Victoria are all home to terrific breweries. Even if you live in a remote area here, fresh beer is never far away.
Let's have another.
