Spinnakers Brewpub Launches New Beers & Prepares For Fall Firkin Festival

VICTORIA, BC – Last week saw the launch of two new beers at Spinnakers Brewpub, Canada’s oldest brewpub which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

The first is Our Emily Summer Ale, brewed in honour of celebrated artist and writer Emily Carr. Spinnakers owner Paul Hadfield described the beer to the Victoria Times-Colonist:

“It’s very light, very pale and very typical of the German-style beer that would have been around Victoria during Emily’s time,” said Hadfield. “With just 3.9 per cent alcohol — about half [the strength] of what we’re used to making — it’s a summer ale that’s meant to be quaffed.”

Our Emily Summer Ale is available in 650 ml bottles at BC private liquor stores, and on tap at the Brewpub.

Also unveiled last week was Lion’s Head Cascadia Dark Ale, a beer made by Spinnakers especially for the Lion’s Head Pub in Robson, BC.

And plans are set for the Spinnakers Fall Firkin Festival, taking place on Sunday November 21st from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturday, November 20th from 11:30 to 5:00, and featuring at least 20 casks from around BC and elsewhere.

  1. The Emily Carr beer sounds likie a fantastic idea. How does one find a listing of liquor outlets likely to carry this brand?
