TAP TAKEOVER – Strathcona Beer Co – August 2nd 2018

I am delighted to invite Strathcona Beer Co as our August Brewery of the month; they have award winning brews and crisp sessionable beers that are a necessity in this heat. Let’s start the flight with the Premium Pilsner, which is a true to style Premium Pale Czech-style lager that is approachable, crisp and the go to elixir in this August heat. If you are spending your time at the beach or are nostalgic for summertime lemonade, then Beach Lemon Mandarin Radler is for you; it is a precise blend of lemon peel, fresh mandarin juice and beer that is light, effervescent, thirst quenching and easy to drink with a tart clean finish. Another great summertime brew is the Love Buzz Raspberry Berliner Weisse (European style Sour Ale) made with raspberry juice and a hint of lactose for a smooth mouthfeel to round off the palate – it is moderately carbonated and light in body with a mild tart finish. Let’s finish the flight with 2 award winning IPAs! First try the British IPA -2017 CBA (Canadian Beer Awards) Gold Winner – brewed in the tradition of old world British brewmasters using UK hop varieties, which give the brew subtle floral, dried fruit, citrus and spice notes. Lastly, finish the flight with Get Down On It oat cream IPA -2018 Gold Award Winner for american Style IPA – that has a silky smooth mouthfeel with tropical fruit and citrus hop notes with a clean finish. Hope you enjoyed your flight!
