legacy liquor store

fun new beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:

Moon Under Water Brewery This Is Hefeweizen - $7.05

From across the Strait of Georgia, Moon Under Water holds to the classic stylings of a Hefeweizen with this phenomenal seasonal brew. Pouring a hazy amber with a fluffy head and aromas of earth, wheat and cloves, this beer shows more cloves and bananas on the palate with citrus bringing up the rear. A classic beer taken to the next level.

Bridge Brewing Hopilano IPA - $7.55

One of our favourite Nano breweries from the North Shore is back for more with their distinctly Pacific Northwest Hopilano IPA in tow. This gem of an India Pale Ale pours a cloudy amber orange with a distinctly floral- and citrus fruit-anchored nose. The palate matches the bouquet, with the citrus eventually winding down into a tropical fruit finish.

Driftwood Brewery Gose-uh - $6.95

A popular beer style from Leipzig, Germany, this unique beer style has met with near extinction twice in its lifetime. Pulled back from the precipice of doom, it pours a hazy yellow with notes of coriander and sweet malt in its bouquet. On the palate coriander plays a large role, while an almost unperceivable tartness helps balance out the sweetness. A truly unique treat.

Lighthouse Brewing - Anniversary Ale - $8.75

They grow up so fast! Happy 15th anniversary, Lighthouse, and here’s to many more! This robust brew has plenty to boast about, with loads of malt and hop (including but not limited to Maris Otter, Crystal and Chocolate malt, as well as Cluster and Fuggle hops) making for an exciting new beer with all the characteristics of a familiar friend.

Parallel 49 Brewing - Red Eye Red Rye Lager - $7.55

A partnership between the boys in our backyard, Parallel 49, and Eugene, Oregon’s favourite son, Ninkasi Brewing, has produced this dark brown brew with notes of fruit, graphite and earth. On the palate, earth, spice, hop and malt all come together to provide a pleasurable experience with a touch of bitterness to round it out. An excellent collaboration that should not be missed.

Tofino Brewing - Reign in Blonde - $6.65

Far, far away on the western shores of Vancouver Island you’ll find a brewery, and in that brewery you’ll find beer. An homage to Slayer, this Blonde pours a pale clear amber with a bouquet of grass, slight hop and malty sweetness, notes that make themselves known without affecting the light, crisp body forming the base of this brew.
