Gastown, Steamworks proudly brews distinct, flavourful and
award-winning craft beers.
Vancouver B.C. (October 6th, 2016)
Steamworks is celebrating the fall harvest
with the release of 2 Fresh Hop Beers; the returning Sartori Ranch
collaboration Hop Attack and new Yak Attack.
Hop Attack is back for another year and
features an exceptional batch of whole cone Centennial hops from
the famed Sartori Ranch in Chilliwack, BC. It's a vibrant IPA with
notes of grass and citrus.
Yak Attack, on the other hand, is a fresh
hopped Pale Ale featuring whole cone Simcoe hops from the famous
Yakima Valley hop growing region. The beer is an incredibly
balanced and smooth pale ale, showcasing fruity and earthy hop
aroma and flavours. "Think of it as Hop Attack's chilled out
younger brother" says Steamworks' brewmaster Julia Hanlon.
In the case of both beers, the extremely
tight harvesting window for fresh hops meant a tight turnaround to
get the hops from the farm into the brew kettle as fast as
possible. Whether down the trans-canada highway or across the
Both beers will be available next week at
government and private liquor stores in extremely limited
quantities. They'll also be on sale and on tap at the Steamworks
Brewery and Taproom at 3845 William St in Burnaby, BC.
