VICTORIA, BC – Vancouver Island Brewery has announced a partnership with Mount Washington Alpine Resort that will see several of its brands available there throughout this year’s ski season, including one new seasonal brand, and another that has been brought back after a successful summer run.
New from the brewery is Mile High Mountain Ale, which is described as follows:
Mile High Mountain Ale is a hop forward, Northwest-style red ale with a medium body and pleasant citrusy bitterness. This Red Ale has a rich, red-amber colour and an engaging dry-hopped aroma. Slightly warming on the palette, with a clean finish, its character makes it a very well balanced, highly sessionable ale.
Back for a return visit is Bohemian Pilsner, a beer first released earlier this year as a benefit brew for the Surfrider Foundation. It has the following description:
Bohemian Pilsner is our interpretation of the classic Czech-style lager. Sculpted in a deep, burnished gold and brilliant in clarity, our pilsner features an assertive initial bitterness, traditional Saaz hops, complemented by a light-medium malt body. Lay back, relax and let your mind wander as you enjoy the crisp, satisfying taste.
In addition to being served at Mount Washington, both beers will be available in 650 ml bottles at select liquor stores in British Columbia, and Mile High will also be featured in the winter edition of VIB’s Pod Pack sampler.
