My personal favourite beer is essentially any from Powell Street Brewing, Storm Brewing, Yellow Dog Brewing or Four Winds Brewing. They're all making exceptional IPAs.
I know Billygoat made a comment about high IBU levels, and how it would be hard to find one on a commercial level, but Powell has done it. They've released their New Kind of Crazy
double IPA; 9% abv and 150 IBUs. It's quite good; probably the best double IPA I've had.
Storm is awesome for their brainstorms
; that's the label for their specialty beers. I was at the brewery and noted that they had created a Devil's Club IPA. I'll just say that it tastes like what the plant smells like. I instantly remembered trips gone by, where bushwhacking was the highlight.
Doug, since you're out near
Prince George, have you tried Scandal Brewing in PG? They produce some decent brews.
Lastly, if any of you are interested in trying some non-hopped beer, give the Heather Ale from Saltspring Island Ales a go. I've found that it's quite refreshing and brewed with heather flower, but I will add that I question their quality control. I've had a few bombers
that were sour in taste; perhaps a defect?
Lastly, 12 breweries and 12 beers = Brews Brothers Collaboration Pack. I'm pretty excited about this: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...53157976729345
