ESPRESSO VANILLA PORTER
As you may know, each and every year, Walkerville Brewery come out with a new and exciting holiday seasonal beer. On November 27, they chose a decadent Espresso Vanilla Porter!
It is a dark, full drinking beer with subtle notes of roasted malts topped off with a lovely creamy white foam. This annual seasonal beer is enhanced by the natural flavors of espresso coffee and balanced with delicate sweetness of Vanilla.
It’s available exclusively at the brewery in limited-edition 500ml and 2L Growlers through their retail store or online retail store for local home delivery.
As with all of their annual holiday limited edition beers, the brewery will donate $1 per bottle sold to a local charity, which will be the United Way’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund this year.
FRANK BREWING CO.
This one isn’t released quite yet, but we had to give it a shout out. Frank Brewing Company’s Winter Ale will be released on December 11, 2020 in a 355ML bottle.
It’s pretty much the Holidays in a glass as it’s brewed with premium ingredients such as fresh local honey, ginger, freshly ground cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, star anise, and cloves.
The Winter Ale carries light malty flavours and is silky on the palette and possesses the perfect balance of spices and finishes with subtle sweetness.
Goes great with something rich and hearty like roast beef, or a comfort food like poutine.
BLACK TOP RE-COAT
MOTOR CRAFT ALES
Motor Craft Ales has made another great small batch you’re going to love: the Chocolate Blueberry Imperial Stout.
During these hard pressed times, the nano brewery choose to channel their inner Eiffel 65 to help them from feeling blue. This stout is brewed with home-made Chocolate syrup and fermented with blueberries with a kiss of cherries and plums and aged on house roasted cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.
This exclusive Motor Craft Ales creation boasts flavours of rich dark chocolate with berry fruit. The finish is warm, boozy, and crisp. It’s a perfect compliment to a juicy prime rib and/or rich cheesecake.
Packs a punch with 9.8% ABV.
CHAPTER TWO BREWING CO.
Belsnickel’s back, alright! (Sung in our best Backstreet Boys voice) Your favourite furry, crotchety Christmas brute is bringing you the gift of Barleywine.
The biggest of English Ales, Barleywine is a decadent, full bodied beer loaded with sweet notes of caramel and dark fruit. This is the kind of brew that pairs well with a blanket and a book, a fireplace and thoughts, or shared with friends.
Belsnickel insisted that this beer condition in the tank for a while so that it was at peak flavour and smoothness upon release, so it packs a punch with 9.5% ABV.
Released Friday, December 4, 2020.
SHOOTS & SKIS
GL HERITAGE BREWING CO.
Everything old is new again at GL Heritage Brewing Co., and that’s a great thing!
If you hadn’t tried before it disappeared, the Shoots & Skis returned to the brewery starting today. This sweet stout is infused with 100% cocoa and lactose to balance the mild hop with a sweet finish.
It’s smooth. It’s silky. It’s sessionable.
Shoots & Skis starts with an essence of roasted coffee aroma (comes from the dark roast grains) and finishes with a dark chocolate profile.
