new and exciting beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
#BitterAllies Urban Legend IPA - $7.45
This collaboration brew from those clever minds at Granville Island Brewery and Joey (yes, the restaurant) is definitely no urban legend. Brewed beneath the Granville Street Bridge in the light of the Cascadian moon, this robust India Pale Ale is all about the hop with zingy citrus notes on both the nose and the palate. Northwest hops and a long, lingering finish make this limited release one worth investigating.

New Belgium Lips of Faith Series Le Terroir - $11.75
Barrel-aged for two to three years (depending on where you’re getting your information) followed by a generous dry hopping, this brew pours a beautiful shade of amber in the glass with sweet malt, hops, oak and sour notes coming together to provide everything you could ever want in a bouquet. As for the palate, all those aromas pull through and make their presence known to create a beer of sheer beauty, a well-rounded sour that will knock your socks off.

Jolly Pumpkin Bam Bière - $13.85
Another treasure from those sneaky brewers at Jolly Pumpkin, this bottle-conditioned Farmhouse Ale pours a hazy golden colour with all sorts of rich notes of lemon zest, coriander and spice. Dry pineapple, golden apple and more coriander are found on the palate of a medium body that is tart, crisp and dry. Refresh and rejuvenate with a seriously quaffable saison boasting the complexity to keep it interesting.
