2015 - Introducing Space Goat--our latest seasonal
release! This adventurous brew is an oat pale ale that is
generously dry-hopped, infusing tropical and citrus hop notes with a
deep, silky oat ale texture. Send your taste buds to the
stratosbeer and float your goat!
Pouring a golden
straw colour, the nose is full of fresh papaya and guava. A round
graininess is softened with a silky mouth feel provided by the oats, with
subtle sweetness balanced against a wonderful tropical hop background.
Space Goat is only available from private craft-focused liquor stores for
a limited time! If you find yourself in our constellation this
Thursday April 7th, come on by between 4-6 for a special draft tasting.
How do you know
summer is around the corner? Some might say it's that first sun
burn, or when you pack your winter jacket away for the season, but over
at Spinnakers, it's when our Red Fife Hefeweizen hits the draft line.
This year we will be releasing not one but two variations of the
delicious wheat beer. The good folks of Silk Road have supplied their
Peach Paradise Tea, which we then steeped in to the second batch of Hef
for an extra hint of flavour.
Over in the restaurant, we anxiously await the first round of veggies
from our new partners at Top Soil, an urban garden start up. Just
another initiative to keep things local!
Our Head Brewer, Tommie Grant will be fighting at this years beer wars to help raise funds and
awareness for at risk youth and our events team heads to Penticton,
Vancouver and Nanaimo in the name of craft beer festivals!
