on cbc radio one, with stephen quinn
wherein we drank driftwood's pilsner doehnel and chatted about beer gear
(Disclosure: The lovely folks at Innate provided me with my saison sleeve, and because I like it so much, another one for Stephen Quinn, which I presented to him on the air and out of which we sipped our Driftwood Pilsner Doehnel, which was also given to me, by the lovely folks at Driftwood Brewing)
And that's just the tip of the iceberg, but hey, I only get six minutes!
This dry, snappy North German-style Pils was lagered for 6 weeks and hopped generously. Prost! "
Brewed using Centennial, Chinook, and Columbus hops, and BC-malted 2-row barley, the 7.5% abv and 80 IBU Superpest is described as having a “soft bitterness” and “tangy hints of grapefruit rind (that) linger on the side of the tongue.”"
Central City Brewing Red Racer Copper Ale

available in 500 ml cans and 650 ml bottles
"A light bodied, easy drinking ale with a pleasantly dry finish. Toasted Munich malt gives this beer both it's colour and malty flavour that is balanced with subtle hop aromatics.
Pairs with: BBQ classics, pork dishes, fruit salad, caramel pecan pie"
