VICTORIA, BC – Lighthouse Brewing is about to release the next installment in their “Big Flavour” series of limited edition beers, as well as new beer for an upcoming mixed pack.
The new big beer is Overboard Imperial Pilsner, an 8.5% lager described as follows:
A long cool fermentation with a pure pilsner yeast strain creates a very unique spicy flavour and a soft malty body. Considered to be one of the best hops in the world, and straight off the vines from the 2010 German harvest, Hallertau Mittlefruh is the only hop used in this beer. This pilsner is crystal clear with a rich golden colour and is best enjoyed well chilled and served in a stemmed tulip glass.
Overboard Imperial Pilsner will be available in 650 ml bottles at private retail stores in BC starting on April 29th.
Following soon after will be the brewery’s Summer Premium Mixer Pack, which will include the new Lighthouse Cream Ale:
Brewed as a modern take on traditional pre-prohibition cream ales, Lighthouse Cream Ale glows a burnished orange and drinks with a silky smooth mouth feel. Vienna and Cara malts add richness and depth of flavour, and new season whole-leaf New Zealand hops lend enticing floral and tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and fragrant, clean and compelling, Lighthouse Cream Ale is the perfect farewell to a setting west coast sun.
