Box Set Mixed Pack and STUMP BotanicaleMay 24th, 2016 - Happy May 2-4! We're celebrating with two brand new releases.  Box Set is a mixed can pack featuring Blue Buck, Analogue 78 and Pilsner.  STUMP Botanicale is a seasonal 650 that celebrates the flavours found in our STUMP Gin.  For more info on each please see below.

Box Set Mixed Can Pack - 355mL 5.0% ABV
This mixed can pack is made to travel.  For the first time ever Analogue 78 Kolsch and our craft brewed Pilsner are in a can, with the trio anchored by the infamous Blue Buck.  Whether your summer adventures take you to the top of a mountain, the middle of a lake, or just as far as the BBQ in your backyard, this case offers the perfect mix track for your session.

Box Set is available from private, craft-focused liquor stores starting this week, and available from the brewery now!
