A change in season means the arrival of new beers at the Fernie Brewing Co. tasting room. A new taste every Thursday in March from 2-6pm!
March 8th: BEER LAUNCH #1
- Three Kings Belgian-Style Tripel.
A spicy, strong Trappist Ale, fit for a King. 8% alc,/vol. 29 IBU
BREWER'S NOTES:A pale, somewhat spicy, dry, strong Trappist Ale with a pleasant rounded malt flavor and firm bitterness. Quite aromatic, with spicy, fruity, and light alcohol notes combining with the supportive clean malt character. High alcohol, yet very approachable to many a palate.
AVAILABILITY: A Spring Seasonal 650ml. Launching locally March 8th, then making its way across BC and Alberta, from March - April 2018. It won't be around for long!
March 15: BEER LAUNCH #2
- High Side Saison
A flavourful farmhouse brew with spicy, peppery and fruity notes.
6% alc,/vol. 35 IBU
BREWER'S NOTES: A very aromatic flavourful, golden brew, with spicy, peppery and fruity notes. This is our take on the classic, refreshing and unassuming, yet delicious Belgian beer. Surprisingly light, but packs a punch of flavour to enjoy. Variety of malts, including Munich, Cara Vienna, Rye and Pilsner malts. Peppercorns, lemon juice and orange peel are also added. **Formerly known as Old Barn in 2017, this beer is re-launching with a new name and sweet new look! Panic not however, as the same great, award-winning liquid remains just how you like it.**
AVAILABILITY: A Spring Seasonal 650ml. Launching locally March 15th, then making its way across BC and Alberta, from April - June 2018.
March 22: BEER LAUNCH #3
- Free Fall Double IPA
Our biggest IPA to date. Loaded with Ekuanot, Simcoe and Loral hops.
8% alc,/vol. 83 IBU
BREWER'S NOTES: Big, boozy and bold, this is our strongest IPA to date. High in alcohol, and heavily hopped with Simcoe, Ekuanot and Loral, showcasing citrus and tropical fruit notes. Ends with a long, lingering bitterness that shows the hop complexity and aroma. This beer is the latest addition to our IPA series for 2018.
AVAILABILITY: A Limited Release 650ml. Launching locally March 22nd, then making its way across BC and Alberta, from April - May 2018, as part of our Rotating IPA Series. With a new IPA launching every second month, it won't be around for long!
March 29: BEER LAUNCH #4
- Single Speed Belgian-Style Blonde
Belgian-Style Blonde Ale, dry hopped with Lemondrop and Mandarina Bavaria.
4.8% alc,/vol. 19 IBU
BREWER'S NOTES: Using the same yeast as our new Three Kings Belgian-Style Tripel, very light malt (mostly pilsner). There are very little hops added on the brewing side, but instead dry-hopped with a little Mandarina Bavaria and Lemondrop to give it a refreshing citrusy finish - think "five alive". The small addition of cardamom, gives a complimentary flavor that doesn’t take away from the yeast and hops.
AVAILABILITY: A new Spring/Summer Seasonal 650ml. Launching locally March 29th, then making its way across BC and Alberta, all summer long, from April - September 2018.
