i went for a run this morning for the first time in (obviously) far too long
this clean livin' is gonna kill me!
that, after i sat through a beernesday at st. augustine's without drinking any of the fabulous beers on tap
my virtuousness is nauseating, i know
(day 17, 14 to go)
anyway, the new and exciting beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
Granville Island Brewing Barley Wine - $10.35
The folks down at GIB have decided to turn up the heat with this barley wine. Aged in bourbon barrels, this particular brew has caramel malt character, vanilla and oak flavours and a dose of Pacific Northwest hop.
Parallel 49 Russian Imperial Stout - $13.75
Brewed dark and strong just like they did it in the 18th century, this Russian Imperial Stout is whiskey barrel-aged with flavours of smoke, vanilla and dried fruits. Pick up a bottle and drink like a czar.
Phillips The Hammer Barrel Aged Imperial Stout - $7.85
The boys at Phillips know what they're doing when it comes to beer. Their Imperial Stout has been barrel-aged in bourbon-soaked American oak and boasts rich roasted caramel warmth.
