new beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
Pyramid Brewing Co. IPL - $6.25
The marriage of Pacific Northwest IPA and lager is one to be cherished, especially one by Pyramid Brewing Co. Hopped with Nugget and Chinook and followed by a dry hopping of Amarillo, Centennial and Sterling, Pyramid IPL is a combination of citrusy hop flavours and the cool, crisp finish of a lager. This brew has summer written all over it.

Four Winds Brewing Co. Juxtapose Brett IPA - $7.55
Four Winds just keeps hitting home runs, and Juxtapose proves no different than those beers that came before it. This Brett IPA has a hazy orange hue and a big tropical nose featuring citrus, pine, bready malts and of course that wonderful barnyard brettanomyces funk, while more tropical fruit, citrus and pine make themselves known on the palate. Well balanced with a lingering finish, this is a beaut of a beer.

Microbrasserie Le Trou du Diable La Bretteuse - $27.55
One good Brett beer deserves another, and Le Trou du Diable serves one up with a bit of Quebecois flare. Clear copper in colour with mandarin peel, funky wood and red berries (this particular brew spent 18 months in Californian Syrah barrels) on the nose, this brew takes a step back from the aroma on the palate, but plays out beautifully with more funk and fruit to keep you sated. Sent straight from the beer heavens, this little gem of a barrel-aged beer wraps up dry.
