legacy liquor store

from legacy liquor store in vancouver:

The season of the tallboy is in full swing with radlers, lagers, pale ales and more, all available to help you keep cool when you’re out enjoying the warm rays of the sun. To top it off, we’ve been seeing a lot more seasonal options roll through the doors, everything from rosés to hefeweizens and beyond. We’ll also be running tastings all weekend, so swing by the store and check out the Legacy Counter. You can see the full line-up down below.
Born in 1975, and brother to Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of Mikkeller, another great gypsy brewery, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø kicked off his career not as a brewer, but as a physics and English teacher. It wasn’t until 2010 that Evil Twin Brewing was founded by Jeppe, but it didn’t take long before it took off in a big way, launching more than forty different brews in 2012 alone and brewing out of ten different breweries in six different countries around the world. It was also in 2012 that Jeppe relocated to Brooklyn with his wife and children in order to be closer to the brewing action and to eventually make New York the beer capital of the world. Some of Jeppe’s most popular brews include Imperial Biscotti Break and Even More Jesus, but one that’s desired by all is made in collaboration with Brussels-based Cantillon, a lambic by the name Blåbær Lambik, a beer so famous that you have to pay up to $300 for it on eBay. Although we don’t have those heavy hitters, we do have some impressive Evil Twins of our own, so check them out!

Evil Twin Brewing Yang Imperial IPA - $5.55
Though it’s one half of Evil Twin’s Black & Tan, don’t fret because this Imperial IPA is just as good on its own. Hazy copper in colour, the big citrusy, piney notes work in combination with the bready malts of the aroma. Pulling through on the palate in much the same way, with surprise guest appearances by melon and honey, are more pine, citrus and of course bready malt, all of which mask the heavy hitting ABV. Half the brew, but just as delicious.

Evil Twin Brewing Lil’ B Imperial Porter - $5.55
Crack this beer and pour its jet black contents into a tulip glass and prepare yourself for an onslaught of chocolate, caramel and a bit of coffee on the nose. On the palate, more chocolate, caramel and again light coffee work into a mouth coating experience. A brilliant imperial porter.
