It is no longer a contested fact that BC has some amazing micro breweries, unfortunately some of these breweries – like Fernie Brewing– are slightly out of the way for us Vancouverites to pop by for a growler fill.  Fret not, as we at Malone’s take care of you and are having a tap takeover with Fernie Brewing and brewery that is 14 years old and consistently produces outstanding brews. Let’s start the flight with an easy-drinking and crisp Bavarian-style pilsner: Project 9 Pils.  Next up. We will have the Base Camp West Coast Pale Ale that is crisp with a hop-forward profile that is accentuated by tropical fruit flavours from the hops and a clean finish.  Fernie brews a really unique IPA, The Eldorado Single-Hop IPA, using only Eldorado hops that has delicate stone fruit notes with a crisp hop bitterness that is enhanced with the addition of lemongrass for a slight herbal and citrus aroma.  Next up, let’s switch to more seasonal colder-weather beers.  The Sap Sucker Maple Porter is decorated with multiple awards and is as Canadian as a beer can get with a prominent maple backbone -via added maple syrup-  in a classic robust porter that is teeming with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee and slight caramel in this medium-bodied ale.  Lastly, we are fortunate to be one of the fist bars to tap the Black Mammoth Winter Ale; a seasonal winter ale that is full-bodied, rich and bit on the stronger side to help with the frigid weather outside, it is loaded with cocoa and chocolate notes that are tactically complimented with orange peel tones – a truly unique brew. Hope you enjoyed your flight.
