VANCOUVER, BC – Bridge Brewing, a company that opened in mid-2012 as “the 1st nano-brewery in Vancouver,” has announced that it will soon be growing to micro-brewery levels, and will also be launching several fall seasonal brands.
The expansion will increase Bridge’s capacity by 56 barrels, allowing them to brew “200,000 more pints of fresh, local beer to enjoy each year.”
Some of those pints will be three new seasonal beers – Edgemont ESB, Indian Arm Black IPA and Lynn Canyon Red Ale – which have the following descriptions:
Edgemont ESB favours strong malt flavour utilizing three types of crystal malt all backed up by earthy, grassy notes from a healthy dose of Willamette while retaining a lively feel in the mouth. An excellent choice to enjoy with richer, meatier dishes for fall.
Indian Arm Black IPA is a west coast style dark ale with earthy tones, flavours of cola and co‑ee, and a hint of nuttiness. This dry beer receives its character from de-husked wheat, caramel malts, and Canadian 2-row barley. Hopped with Cascade and Willamette varieties, this Cascadian Dark Ale embraces its west coast roots.
Lynn Canyon Red Ale has a strong crystal malt and roasted barley backbone with slight residual sweetness. It’s easy on the hop bitterness with northwest grown English varietals.
Edgemont ESB is available now in growlers at the Bridge retail store, and 650 ml bombers in select private liquor stores in Vancouver and area. Indian Arm and Lynn Canyon will follow soon.
