It takes a lot of preparation and planning to reach any SUMMIT, especially when its the highest mountain on the island portion of the Province. Atop of the neighboring Lewis Hills (near Secret Cove Brewing), you will find the highest mountain on the Island portion of the Province - The Cabox, (814meters above sea level) which boasts some of the best hiking, skiing and snowmobiling the island has to offer.
We celebrate the highest point in Newfoundland with the release of our West Coast DOUBLE IPA titled: The Cabox ABV: 8.1%, (814 meters high).
The Lewis Hills country is a wonderful destination and playground for experienced hikers and explorers. About 20 years ago it was designated as part of the International Appalachian Trail. If your hike originates in from the neighboring community of Point au Mal, be prepared to reach the summit of The Cabox after a 26 km journey through a world that can’t be described without seeing it for yourself.
This West Coast IPA is all about the planning of the HOPS. We even mash hopped this beer, and like another famous explorer, Columbus hops would be kettle addition #1. After maxing out our whirlpool additions with Citra, Simcoe, and Columbus and pairing those HOPS on Day#1 of Dry Hop, we decided on the final day of dry hopping would be best suited with SUMMIT hops. To reach the SUMMIT takes a lot of planning.
