VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the release of a new seasonal beer inspired by the ongoing experiments of the brewery’s “beer architect” Ben Schottle.
Schottleweizen is a 7.5 abv dark wheat ale that is described as follows:
Schottleweizen is a brand new seasonal release named in honour of Ben featuring a dark malt base, a generous dose of hops brought to life with Belgian-inspired saison yeast. It’s lively, moderately sweet, and a little bit unconventional – just like Ben.
Double Dragon is out now in a limited run of 650 ml bottles available at select private liquor stores in BC and at the Phillips retail store. A draught tasting of the beer will take place next Tuesday April 15th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Phillips tasting room, with boar and venison pairings provided by Choux Choux Carcuterie, Two Rivers Meats and Brewery & the Beast.
