First Press (5.6%) // $6.00

Cold Brew Coffee Stout

Demonstrating a smooth, satisfying mouthfeel, First Press is complex and flavourful from first sip to last. (P)

Flavours of caramel, baked apple and roasted almonds are prominent from the thoughtfully sourced, locally roasted coffee.

Some info from Kevin @ Ghost Roasters:
Ghost Roaster Coffee is a tiny roasting operation in New Westminster BC. An enthusiastic side project to bring thoughtfully sourced small batch roasted coffee to folks in the lower mainland and beyond from Kevin McConnell. Follow along and get your own ghost @ghostroasted on Instagram and Twitter. Kevin is stoked to be able to team up with the brewery he calls home on Firstpress!

This is an Organic Certified coffee that was cultivated in the municipality of San Cristobal, located in the Chiapas region of Mexico.

San  Cristóbal  de  las  Casas  is  a  Pueblo  Mágico  in  Chiapas.  “Pueblo  Mágico”  (Magic  Town)  is  a  designation  created  by  the  Mexican  government  to  recognize  sites  full  of  symbology,  legend,  transcendent history, and that highlight the best of the country’s national identity.

Phonograph (7.1%) // $6.25

Maple Smoked Porter

Something new and dark to wet your whistle, this one with double maple additions. (P)

The brew team wanted to create something dark and seasonal with a twist. A maple twist!

With two Maple variations, wood and syrup, Phonograph provides highs and lows on the front and the back of the palate. A subtle hint of maple, rich dark chocolate and velvet smoke stack up to create a luxurious, balanced porter that satisfies from roasty start to lingering, long finish.

NIGHTCAP (6.1%) // $6.00

This is a wonderful mix of fruit and malt and a great example of the types of beers our brew team excel at. (P, F)

Always beer-forward, always balanced and approachable.

With zingy cranberry and round orange flavors, Nightcap is firmly supported by the warming spice characteristics of Belgian yeast to provide a complex, satisfying brew to keep out the cold.

 

The Commute (4.9%) // $6.00

Kölsch

When our friends at Studio Brewing decided to open their doors, we started the countdown to our first collab with our new neighbors. (F)

What better way to celebrate the short commute between us than with a home and away collaboration brew?

We brewed The Commute with Heidelberg Pilsner malt for a crisp, clean taste. We added German nobel hops (Perle, Spalter Select and Hersbrucker) to bring a floral, herbal and pleasingly spicy aroma to the table. Fermented cold with a traditional Kölsch yeast, subtle fruity esters linger on the finish before disappearing before the next sip.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Studio! I’m sure we’ll be making The Commute many times over. 

Blancs (6.3%) // $6.00

Lager Conditioned on Albariño grapes

We took our lager recipe and fermented it on the pomace (grape skins) of some freshly pressed Albariño grapes that Eric drove up and retrieved from Terravista Vineyards in Naramata. (P)

Eric says: “We teamed up with our friends at Terravista Vineyards to create this piquette-style beer. Albariño grapes were pressed early in the morning in Naramata then loaded up into the van to make the journey to New Westminster that very same day. There, we loaded the grapes into a tank and transferred the waiting lager on top of them. Although the grapes are pressed, the remaining juice and sugars ferment out in the beer and leave a delightful wine character. After 2 weeks conditioning on the grapes, we transferred off and lagered the beer for an additional 4 weeks. This beer is worth the effort.”

Lots going on! Here’s some information to digest:

Albariño : A unique varietal grown primarily in Spain and Portugal(Alvarinho). It can be reasonably compared to Riesling, Viognier, Gewürztraminer and Petit Menseng.
Terravista Vineyards: A producer of small-lot, specialty white wine in the Okanagan. They are one of the few producers of Albariño in North America.
Piquette:  a French wine term which commonly refers to a vinous beverage produced by adding water to grape pomace. We used lager instead of water.
Pomace: The leftover grape solids after pressing for juice

With vivid minerality, residual bitterness from the grape skins and pits and a tannic finish, this beer is an interesting exercise in mixed mediums.

Baltic (7.6%) // $6.50

Porter

Our Canadian Brewing Awards winning Baltic Porter is back for another season after being in the tank for a full 8 weeks. (P)

Lager is Life.

Wait what? I thought this was a Porter?

Well, technically, Baltic Porter is fermented with a lager yeast which would make it a lager… but I mean, those are just the details. Lagering. Which, if you’re curious, was an innovation of breweries in, you guessed it, Baltic nations who put their spin on an English style.

Baltic is conditioned on licorice root and has notes of dark chocolate, toffee, molasses and anise and finishes clean, like a lager. Confusing I know. It rolls in 7.6% but it does not taste that strong, so imbibe wisely!
