Pilsner, Heroica Red Ale and Kolsch.
Steamworks brewmaster Julia Hanlon expands
upon the meticulous development process and award-winning new beer:
"As a brewery well known for its speciality IPAs, we felt it
was high time Steamworks come out with a core IPA. Trial brews of
Flagship IPA began over a year ago so that we could fine tune every
aspect of the beer. After scale up to a full production brew, I
couldn’t be happier with the result. Flagship IPA has a huge
tropical fruit aroma that gives way to a juicy flavour and a
balanced, soft bitterness and mouthfeel and a nice, dry finish. I'm
very proud of our brewing team for making this best in show winning
beer and can't wait for people to try it."
The Flagship IPA is now available on-tap and
in 6-packs in liquor stores across BC and as well in Steamworks
Tall-Can Mash-Up 8 pack alongside three other award-winning
