Wildcard Brett IPA - 7.0% - 650mL
4th, 2017 - With the peak of summer season almost
upon us, we decided to play a little something special we have been
hiding up our sleeve: Wildcard Brett IPA is a one off seasonal
exclusive brew that has been dealt with a heavy hand of citrus hops,
and fermented with six strains of brettanomyces yeast.
The beer pours a beautiful golden colour with a finger of pillow
white head. Grassy sweetness and fresh hops are underpinned
with flavours of banana funk and clove. Wonderfully complex,
Wildcard is both rich and refreshing.

BREWING UP GENDER PARITY: THE QUEST FOR BEERQUALITY
REBECCA WHYMAN • JUNE 13, 2019
Women are markedly underrepresented in craft beer. This is not news to anyone. But have you ruminated on just how large the gender gap is? A 2018 survey by Nielsen-Harris found American craft beer drinkers are 68.5 per cent male and 31.5 per cent female. Closer to home, BeerMeBC’s 2018 survey had those numbers at 71 and 29 per cent, with 0.32 per cent identifying as “other.” For those not so strong in the math department, that means that there are only three women drinking craft beer for every seven men.
