VICTORIA, BC – Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub has announced the upcoming launch of a new series of limited edition beers, with a unique collaboration with a local winery set to be the first installment.
The Spinnakers Brewers Reserve Series will kick off soon with the release of Ortega Blonde, a hybrid ale/wine that is described as follows:
As the old saying goes, “It takes a lot of beer to make good wine.” With this in mind, and in collaboration with Muse Winery, we present Ortega Blonde, a collision of the artisan beer and wine worlds. Freshly crushed Vancouver Island grown Ortega grape juice was fermented along with a Canadian Pilsen based ale resulting in a delicate, complex, effervescent ale, heavy on the citrus, with a dry, white wine finish.
Ortega Blonde will be released on December 1st, and will be available on draught at the Spinnakers brewpub, and in bottles at select private liquor stores in BC.
