legacy liquor store

lots of delicious new beers at legacy liquor store while i was away:

Freigeist Bierkultur Geisterzug Spruced Traditional Gose - $6.95

From the far-off continent of Europe, in the great land that is Germany—Köln specifically—comes a simply delicious brew. Amber in colour with a hint of grapefruit pink, its nose of German yeast, faint lemon peel and a touch of spruce pairs perfectly with a palate of gentle acidity, more yeast, zippy salt and once again a touch of spruce in the finish. A session-able and refreshing beer all the way through.

Elysian Brewing Co. Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout - $8.15

The ultimate collaboration of two of the best things Seattle has to offer: beer and coffee. Rich and dark in the glass with a big robust nose of espresso and just a hint of dark chocolate, followed by more coffee and chocolate in perfect harmony on the palate. Robust and creamy, this brew was made for the lover of all things Seattle.

Parallel 49 Brewing Co. Robo Ruby Imperial Red IPA - $7.55

Cranking the dial on Gypsy Tears is exactly what Parallel 49 did here. Opaque burgundy in colour once it hits the glass with a huge nose of resinous hops and caramel malt, the palate itself shows plenty of stone fruit as well as the resinous hops and caramel malt found in the nose. Bold, balanced and just plain delicious, this IPA hits the mark. Also, who doesn't love a little Binary Code with their beer 0100001100001010001001.

Ninkasi Brewing Co. Dawn of the Red - $7.65

A robust red ale from Ninkasi Brewing Co. in Eugene, Oregon. Amber in colour with a balanced nose of malt, toffee, tropical fruits and floral hops that follows through onto the palate showing more tropical fruits like mango and tangerine rounded off by hoppy bitterness similar to lime pith. The perfect brew to be enjoyed with any George A. Romero flick or while you’re throwing up the horns.

Steamworks Brewing Co. Imperial Red - $7.10

A beer that’s packed with intense flavours and that hop bitterness we love so much. A rich dark copper colour in the glass with dominant aromas of pine, fruit and floral hop neatly packaged with a palate of toffee, caramel and an almost aggressive yet well balanced hop presence. Hopped with Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe and finished off with a suitable dry-hopping, this limited release from Steamworks should definitely not be missed.

Cigar City Brewing x New Belgium Brewing Lips of Faith Series - $11.85

Lips of Faith series presents us with another unique collaborative beer from Cigar City Brewing and New Belgium. This particular brew is orange and slightly hazy in colour with aromas of citrusy hops, spice and yeast. On the palate more citrus and even some tropical fruit make an appearance before a mouth warming sensation takes the helm, thanks to chili peppers. One of the more unique beers available on the market, and definitely worthwhile.

New Belgium Brewing Co. Spring Blonde (Six-Pack) - $18.15

Hopefully heralding the return of longer days and warmer weather, New Belgium Brewing’s seasonal Spring Blonde is here. Exactly the colour you would expect it to be—blonde—with a fresh nose of spice, Belgian yeast and floral hops, aromas that follow through on the palate and deliver more Belgian yeast, barley malts and hops. A simply refreshing beer perfect for the weather to come.

Dead Frog Brewing Co. Uber Nutter Imperial Nut Brown Ale - $8.85

An ode to Dead Frog’s classic nut-brown ale is what you’ll find here, albeit with a bit more pep in its step. Utilizing their classic recipe, and popping in a few more malts to add complexity, this dark rich beer has notes of espresso, chocolate and toffee bursting from the glass and continuing to roll through on the palate. This brew will warm you up during the February chill.

Lagunitas Brewing Co. Cappuccino Stout - $7.10

Lagunitas Brewing is known for their seasonal brews, and their Cappuccino Stout doesn’t stray from their trending excellence. Nearly pitch black in colour with a nose that’s all espresso, coffee, blackberry and blood orange, aromas that come through on the palate in addition to lovely appearances of chocolate, creamy vanilla and more espresso beans. A dangerously quaffable beer given its ABV, but delicious to the last drop.
