Field House Brewing Co. by Good Life Ale

Byrun S. is drinking a Good Life Ale by Field House Brewing Co.

A well balanced ale. Bitter, bretty, piney, with subtle berry flavours and a malty backbone.

Category 12 Brewing by Pivotal

Byrun S. is drinking a Pivotal by Category 12 Brewing

Category 12 producing an ESB came as a surprise, but a pleasant one. Well balanced and a good representation of the style.

Steel & Oak Brewing Co. by The Fraser

One hell of a juicy, fruity, slightly bretty pale from from two great BC Breweries. Fantastic flavours.

Dageraad Brewing by Londen

Byrun S. is drinking a Londen by Dageraad Brewing

I traded beers with a fellow "craft lover" recently. Dageraad's Londen was one such trade. Interesting hybrid. Strong dried fruit flavours.

Brouwerij Rodenbach by Rodenbach Grand Cru

Byrun S. is drinking a Rodenbach Grand Cru by Brouwerij Rodenbach at Fernwood

I haven't drank a Rodenbach since 1996. It changed my tastes in beer. This one is not as sourbor tart as I recall it being, but it is good.

Purchased at Denman Beer Wine & Spirits

Category 12 Brewing by Elemental Series Wild Saison With Loganberries And Brettanomyces

Byrun S. is drinking an Elemental Series Wild Saison With Loganberries And Brettanomyces by Category 12 Brewing

It's almost a given that when Category 12 brews a saison it is going to be good — this is no exception. Highly enjoyable.

Field House Brewing Co. by Cherry Vanilla Milk Stout

Byrun S. is drinking a Cherry Vanilla Milk Stout by Field House Brewing Co. at Fernwood

The chocolate malts dominate, the vanilla is very sublte, though the cherry comes through. A delicious, easy drinking, creamy milk stout.

Vancouver Island Brewing by Burton Ale

Byrun S. is drinking a Burton Ale by Vancouver Island Brewing

Think Proto-IPA. Interesting beer w/ history behind it. There is an almost Fernet like, myrrh flavour that predominates. Worth a hoist.

Purchased at Cascadia Liquor Store

Longwood Brewery by Quinceotica

Byrun S. is drinking a Quinceotica by Longwood Brewery

Cracked one last night. The quince flavour could be more forward (maybe baked first?) but it is an interesting cider like beer. Thumbs up.

Foamers' Folly Brewing Co. by Winter Spiced Ale

Byrun S. is drinking a Winter Spiced Ale by Foamers' Folly Brewing Co.

Interesting attempt that doesn't wholly succeed. Clove and bitter nutmeg flavours mix with a fresh ground, black coffee flavour. Watery tho'

Borg Brugghús by Vínland Nr.C5

Byrun S. is drinking a Vínland Nr.C5 by Borg Brugghús

One of my favourite beers of 2017. I have my private stockpile. I'll be sad once it has depleted.
