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.

& 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.

Contributed/file photosYou can’t help it, I can’t help it—we all judge beers by their labels, maybe as much as we judge the beer itself. Beer labels have been around for ages: 83 years on cans, and much longer than that on bottles. It appears we’ve been loving beer labels for that whole time—just check out all the vintage labels you can buy on eBay! Doesn’t it seem, though, that we’re loving beer labels extra hard right now? Maybe it’s that size matters. Beer cans, especially those tall boys, offer lots of real estate for labelling. Large-format bottles provide a sizeable canvas as well. Maybe it’s as simple as habituation. Humans aren’t that different from crows; we’re attracted to bright, shiny objects. And with soc…
