On-tap: Holiday offerings from Granville Island, Big Rock and Foamer’s Folly

It’s the most wonderful time of the beer, with B.C. craft breweries putting out some great holiday-themed brews, perfect for stuffing stockings and stocking fridges. Here’s what’s on our wish list this week…

Granville Island Brewing’s Cellar Series Gift Pack

 

If you missed out on brewmaster Kevin Emms’s exceptional small-batch Cellar Series offerings earlier this year, you’re in luck! All four of the beers are available in Granville Island’s Cellar Series Gift Pack, which comes with a super cool wooden bomber holder, too. Included are Doppelbock, Japanese Biere De Garde, Belgian Quad and Barley Wine, and all are suitable for cellar aging up to three years, which allows the flavors deepen and further develop—although immediate consumption is equally encouraged.

Big Rock Brewing’s Winter Spice Ale

 

Big Rock’s Winter Spice Ale is all decked out for the holidays in limited edition tall cans, now available in festive four-packs. This spiced ale has a malty sweetness with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger balanced with a crisp Fuggle hop finish. Christmas in a can!

 

Foamer’s Folly Brewing Co.’s Holiday Gift Pack

Foamer’s Folly’s complete Juicy Double White IPA series is together at last in this bomber four-pack. Included is the original Juicy Double with strawberry, along with Juicy Double ll with mango, Juicy Double III with kiwi fruit and Juicy Double lV with pomegranate.
