new beers coming to town

there are so many great beers coming to town!

beerthirst is bringing us beers from the bruery!

"From their wide landscape of experimental ales that are brewed in the Belgian tradition, the Rue family has made quite the name for themselves in a very short time. Their ratings speak for themselves on websites such as Ratebeer.com, where 90% of their beers score from 93 to 100. These unique, barrel-aged, bottle conditioned beers are so good that, the craft beer aficionados in BC have been known to drive out to Bellingham and even Seattle, in order to get their hands on these wonderful creations. Well, that is about to change very soon because The Bruery is coming to BC!
The wait is over folks. The Bruery has finally agreed to send their beers up north. We've been fans of this brewery for quite some time and we're absolutely thrilled to import these fine ales for the good people of British Columbia!
The Bruery is a small craft brewery located in Orange County, California. The name is a fusion of 'brewery' with their family name, Rue. They use a proprietary Belgian yeast strain for the majority of their creations, but they are also known for using Brettanomyces and bacteria such as Pediococcus and Lactobacillus. The Bruery is also notable for their use of bourbon and wine barrels for the fermentation and aging of their beers. Particularly, they have become well known for their strong bourbon aged ales that can range between 13% and 19.5% ABV.
The first shipment is expected to ship out of their warehouse in the end of May. We'll keep you posted on what beers to expect."
 
and elysian's space dust ipa that i enjoyed so much last summer when i was in seattle:
 
"This year, the second release in Elysian's "Manic IPA" series is going to be something that's completely out of this world! Space Dust IPA will come drifting out of the cosmos to beautiful British Columbia soon!
Space Dust is an (asteroid) belt of Chinook, Citra and Amarillo hops streaking across a fairly open space grist of Northwest pale and touches of C-15 and Dextri-Pils malts. 70 IBU will deliver a good (VanAllen) belt of bitterness and 7.2% alcohol by volume keeps thrust a medium burn.
Space Dust will be available in 59L kegs and 650ml bottles mid May, with a cute little extra-terrestrial hop feller on the label."
 
and double trouble's pilsner that i am dying to try:
 
Prison Break Pilsner's unconfined flavour demonstrates just how good a lager can taste. Full of aromatic and balanced hopping for maximum security. This Breatkout Pilsner will surely set your palate free of uninspiring lagers. Brewed in BC! 5% ABV.
and hop valley brewing co.
 
"Up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon State, are thousands and thousands of acres, dedicated to growing the beautiful flower that we can't seem to get enough of: hops! Being that Oregon is also home to countless craft breweries, we're always on the hunt to see who's producing the best showcase of their fresh, local hops. Well, after searching high and low, we finally came across Hop Valley Brewing.
We are very excited to announce that Hop Valley Brewing will soon be available in BC! This amazing brewery definitely lives up to their name with their bold and hoppy beers, and they take pride in brewing all their beers with ingredients grown in Oregon and the Northwest.
When we first got in contact with the good folks of Hop Valley, they were operating a small brewpub in Springfield, Oregon. Luckily, they were also in the middle of expanding and building a new production facility. We recently had the chance to visit their new production brewery (still under construction) in Eugene, and we were blown away! We took one step into the facility and we realized we took their "expansion" very lightly.
Hop Valley's new production brewery is located in the Whiteaker district in Euguene, and it's a 30,000-square-foot building. Once it's complete, it will have quite the tasting room, as well as a beer garden outside. The new brewery is going to triple their brewing and storage capacity from 3,500 barrels a year to more than 12,000 barrels! On top of all that, they are also starting a barrel-aging program as well. We can't wait to see what the finish product is going to look like.
As far as the beers from Hop Valley go, they are absolute hoppy goodness. The Alpha Centauri Binary IPA and Alphadelic IPA receive 94 and 93 on RateBeer. Their Natty Red is a great, hopped up Imperial Red Ale, and they also have a nice Vanilla Porter (93 on Ratebeer). They specialize in hoppy beers but we feel that they have a lot to offer."
