Terra Rustic Table Lager with Aged Hops

Piccolo-Munich-Style-Helles

TERRA RUSTIC TABLE LAGER w/ AGED HOPS

Collaboration with Barnside Brewing (Delta, BC)

Colour: Pale Straw

ABV: 3.8%

Suggested Glassware: Krug

Tasting Notes: Terra, or land in Italian, highlights the terroir of British Columbia. This special collaboration with our friends Barnside Brewing, is made with 100% local pilsner and wheat malt from Field Five Farm and utilizes a locally grown experimental hop that was aged for almost two years at Barnside. This unique hop was aged specifically to produce their spontaneous beer.The whole cone aged hops were added to the mash and offer a unique and complex aroma and flavour profile that includes woody and earthy, tea-like characteristics. We paired this with a touch of their fresh Sterling hops for balance, and then we fermented Terra with a strain of Czech lager yeast to compliment the low alcohol and rustic nature of a table lager.Terra was single decocted and naturally carbonated to create a fluffy mouthfeel with a substantial head of foam. This rustic lager takes elements of both saison and gueuze to create a unique beer that is both confounding and refreshing. By paying homage to traditional brewing methods but with our own West Coast twist, together with Barnside we believe Terra is the natural connection between land and beer.

DUOMO KÖLSCH STYLE ALE

Kölsh

Colour: Golden

ABV: 5%

Suggested Glassware: Ale Glass

Tasting Notes: Duomo, which means cathedral in Italian, pays homage to Cologne, known for its famous cathedral and even more infamous lagered ale. Just like the duomi of Italy where people gather, Kölsch beer has brought people together for centuries. It took us 7 years to finally make a Kölsch style beer, and we are incredibly excited to share our interpretation of this historic ale. Duomo incorporates 100% Extra Pale Premium German pilsner malt, Tettnanger hops, and a classic strain of Kölsch yeast. This beer was naturally carbonated and lagered long and slow giving it a very crisp finish with a fluffy lasting head of foam. We get aromas of lemon peel, gewurztraminer, bee pollen and marigold flowers. Low bitterness and a dry finish make this beer incredibly sessionable.  Duomo is an excellent beer to share with loved ones over a meal or to crush with friends at the park while watching the sunset!

ZENIT CZECH PALE LAGER

Czech Pale Lager

Colour: Pale Straw

ABV: 4.2%

Suggested Glassware: Krug

Tasting Notes: Zenit, is both the Italian and the Czech translation of the word zenith. For many beer lovers, pale lagers are the zenith of beer. To emulate the centuries old classic, we brewed this complex lager with Bohemian Pilsner malt which we decoction mashed for added colour and body. Loads of Czech Saaz hops were used in the kettle for a prominent herbal and grassy hop character that seems to escape from the glass. Aromas of lemon balm, green tea and classic noble hop spice lead to flavours of fresh baked bread and honey with a balanced bitterness that travels through the pallet.
