a new seasonal release from phillips in victoria:
Our Evergreen Ale is crafted as an homage to Cook and BC brewing history. Just like the explorers of old, we set out on our own little conquest to gather fresh spruce for the brew but what started as a simple harvesting mission quickly turned into a full-blown backwoods adventure when things didn't go exactly as planned...(Check the video on Vimeo or YouTube)
The story does have a happy ending though, in a beer endowed with a citrus-pine taste that might inspire you to become a history buff. Cook was only in Nootka Sound for a month, and this beer is only in private craft-focused liquor stores on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland for a limited time.
