and new and delicious beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
2013 Brewery Creek Collaboration Spruce Tip Stout - $8.15
Craft Beer Month is coming to a close, but not without unleashing its collaboration beer to the clamoring masses. Employing the minds of Main Street Brewing, 33 Acres, R&B, Red Truck and Brassneck, this beer is not to be trifled with. Utilizing spruce tips and roast malt, all while boasting a more than sessionable ABV of 3.9%, this limited run brew should certainly not be missed (especially considering the fact the label is also a removable patch).

St. Ambroise Vintage Ale Millésimée - $7.55
Brewed once a year by Peter McAuslan and brewmaster Ellen Bounsall, this beer is a culmination of experience and passion. Dark amber in colour, it features all sorts of fabulous aromas on the nose including, but not limited to, buttered bread, red berries and caramel. Caramel and malt dominate the palate of this medium-bodied beer, making it a real gem for these brisk Autumn nights.

Harvest Moon Brewing Vulcan Ale - $4.45
Trekkies unite! Or those who wish to celebrate Vulcan, Alberta’s 2013 centennial celebration. A hazy copper in colour when poured into a glass, this beer has notes of biscuit and malt paired with apple and black pepper. Toffee is prominent on the palate, with a bit of biscuit and even some stone fruit leading to an off dry finish that helps to wrap it all up. Perfect for any Star Trek fanatic.
