VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the launch today of a new trio of beers – one a year-round brand, one launching a new limited edition series, and the third a new charity beer.
Joining the regular ranks at Phillips is Bottle Rocket ISA, a 5% abv ale:
Bottle Rocket is an India Session Ale packed with bright, hoppy bitterness sure to ignite your tastebuds. Unlike its bigger IPA cousins, this beer sits a bit lighter on the scale at 5%, but still packs a hop blast sure to satisfy even the most seasoned Hoprotechnician.
Kicking off the new Twisted Oak Stillage Series of limited edition barrel-aged beers is Twisted Oak Scotch Ale:
As the flagship in this newly minted series, this robust Scotch Ale highlights the gentle peat notes and sweet vanilla flavours that were infused as the beer matured in freshly emptied whiskey barrels.
And last but not least is Leviathan Milk Stout, the winning beer from Phillips’ 2012 Benefit Brew contest:
The people have spoken, and, as the 2012 winner of the Benefit Brew Project, this Leviathan Milk Stout is a beer with a porpoise! Cetus Research & Conservation Society is dedicated to the preservation of marine habitats, ensuring that life below the waves remains as vibrant as it is above. All the clams from the sale of this beer go to support their efforts.
Bottle Rocket is available in 355 ml cans, and the other two in 650 ml bottles, at the Phillips retail store and select private liquor stores in BC.
All three beers will also be available to sample on draught during a special tasting this Wednesday January 23rd from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Phillips brewery.
