new beer offerings at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
Brooklyn Brewery - Silver Anniversary Lager - $18.90
Happy Anniversary, Brooklyn, 25 years of excellent brewing and many more to come! Brewed to the strength of a dopplebock, this lager uses four different malts in addition to Cascade, Willamette, and Hallertauer Mittelfrueh and Saphir hops. Pouring dark amber in colour with notes of citrus, toasted malt and butterscotch on the nose, aromas that carry through on the palate before fading into a spicy hop finish, this brew is an excellent way to celebrate 25 years.
Tree Brewing - Hop Head Black IPA - $7.85
Nestled in the BC interior, Tree Brewing consistently churns out some spectacular seasonal beers, their Hop Head continuing the trend. Five hops and six malts can be found in this dark brown, nearly black beer. Biscuits, citrus (think grapefruit) and a little pine are all found in the aroma while smoke and chocolate lead the pack on the palate followed closely by citrus and pine. A dangerously quaffable brew.
Russell Brewing - Nautical Disaster Barleywine - $11.25
A new Golden Stag winner has been chosen and with it comes a new beer from Russell. Based on homebrewer David Shea’s recipe, this Barleywine uses four different malts and undergoes a three-hour brew to produce a complex beer. Drink it now, or let it mellow out for a year and see what a little elbow grease and ingenuity can do for you.
