2015: It's hop harvest season and Green Reaper, our annual
fresh-hop IPA, is back! This year's Reaper uses Vancouver Island
barley malted right here at our malting facility! We are so excited
to be able to partner with local farmers to use island-grown grain in our
brews, that we've updated our name to Phillips Brewing & Malting Co!
On the hop side of things Green Reaper is packed with fresh centennial
hops which were shipped straight from Sartori Farm in Chilliwack and into
our brew kettle. Grapefruit aroma and flavours are underpinned with
slight floral hints. This IPA remains subtly sweet, featuring a
vibrancy and delicacy that can only come from full-cone, never-dried
Harvest your bottle at private craft-focused liquor stores before this
fresh-hop apparition disappears for another year!
We're also hosting a free draft tasting of this seasonal specialty down
here at Phillips HQ on Wednesday
October 7th from 4-6pm; so pop on down and help us
celebrate hop harvest season the best way possible: over a beer.
Green Reaper is hitting private liquor store shelves now!
The barley in Green Reaper was grown locally and then
malted here at the brewery in our new boutique Maltworks plant!
