Seasonal Releases from Central City Brewers & Distillers
Now introducing: Central City's easy-drinking
'Beer League Craft Brewed Lager'
British Columbia. Beer League is the latest in craft beer to hit
the market and show an approachable style to craft beer flavour.
Swinging for the fences, this new craft lager will be available in
British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba, in March 2017. Beer League
is the newest brand to come from Surrey, BC’s Central City Brewers
Brewed as a traditional craft lager, the Beer League
recipe was created to be an approachable, easy drinking, and
flavourful, craft beer. Sports-focused, the brand plays tribute to
the weekend warrior and recreational team sports beer drinker.
Nothing says team spirit like sharing a 6-pack of Beer League after
the big game.
Central City’s Brewmaster Gary Lohin adds, “We
wanted to create a brand that could get more people into craft beer
with great flavour, affordable pricing and a relatable image. Beer
League is a beer that we are very proud of, and has the potential
to get more people across Canada enjoying the great flavour of a
craft brewed lager."
The official launch date for Beer League Craft Lager
will be March 15th at the Central City Brewpub at 871 Beatty
Street in Vancouver, BC. The launch event will focus on the
sporting nature of the brand, with games such as table hockey,
darts, and bean bag toss. A light-hearted approach to competition
is true to the beer style and the beer league competitor.
Dedicated to supporting and engaging with athletes
of all levels, Beer League is a proud sponsor of sports teams in
Canada. Beer League will be available at the Scotiabank Nat Bailey
Stadium through the summer of 2017. Packaged product and draught
Beer League Craft Brewed Lager will be available at select
locations in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba.
Beer League Craft Brewed Lager is brewed by Central
City Brewers & Distillers. Twice winners of the coveted

& DAGERAAD TEAM UP FOR
NEW COLLAB BREW
March 2nd, 2017 (Burnaby,BC)
Hot off the release of their award-winning
Flagship IPA , Steamworks has turned their attention to a different
ship: friend-ships! Bad puns aside, the Burnaby brewery is excited
to announce a new collaboration brew.
Steamworks has been busy collaborating with
their fellow Burnaby based brewers at Dageraad Brewing. Aptly named the “East of East Van Bottle Conditioned Saison”, these two river
city brewers have crafted a beer worth crossing Boundary Ave for.
This exotic saison features black lime and white pepper, which
gives it a spicy aroma, crisp flavor and dry finish. Steamworks
brewmaster Julia Hanlon expands upon the release:
“We wanted to celebrate our brewery’s Burnaby
roots with our friends at Dageraad. The addition of black limes
make for a really unique release and it’s our first Bottle
Conditioned beer at Steamworks, who better to team up with, than Dageraad, who are experts at the art of bottle conditioning!”
The saison follows the recently released Wild
Muscari Farmhouse Ale, a collaboration brew between Steamworks & Fieldhouse Brewing out of Abbotsford, BC.
The East of East Van Saison is now available
in very limited quantities on-tap and in a 750ml bottle at
Steamworks Burnaby Brewery & Taproom and will be hitting
private liquor stores shelves later this week.
I'm single. I have been for several years.
I was really enjoying my single state during those years. I did what I wanted, when I wanted. It was pretty glorious.
I've started thinking though, that I would like some companionship too.
Now that I have popped by head up and looked around, I realize I have no idea how one goes about meeting people.
I have friends. But there's not a pool of potential dates within that friend group. Or anyone with a secret stash of available friends of friends they have somehow kept from me until now.
How did I used to get dates?
I would start playing a new sport. Or go to the bar.
I'm middle-aged now. There is no bar.
I don't think.
Is there one?
God, if there is, someone tell me where it is!
I understood the etiquette of meeting people at bars.
I do not understand this whole internet dating and hooking up thing.
I wish there was a book - How to Internet Date for Middle-Aged Dummies
There is this cheatsheet, but geesh, how old do …
THE NEW FACE OF CRAFT BEER IS HERE
REBECCA WHYMAN • MARCH 8, 2019 Tara Rafiq illustration
You know that phenomenon when something, seemingly out of nowhere, tickles your brain, then takes up residence, and has you ruminating for months? That’s what happened to me at Bart Watson’s key-note speech at the B.C. Brewers’ Conference back in October. The chief economist for the American Brewers Association gave an engaging talk about the state of craft brewing, chock-full of brain tickling stats and his interpretations of what they mean now and for the future. Including this innocuous little slide:
Nothing controversial here, folks. Just that some craft beer drinkers are drinking more craft beer, and say they are doing so because they visit breweries. Isn’t that nice? The industry must love when the already-converted are drinking even more craft. And all breweries had to do was offer appreciators a way to visit them at the source? Pure gold! …
