FERNIE, BC – Fernie Brewing has announced the release of a new seasonal brand, and has confirmed the details for two new beers that are being added to its rotating series of IPAs.
Java The Hut Coffee Milk Stout is a 5% abv and 40 IBU stout with the following description:
With a unique and rich infusion of coffee, it’s a truly satisfying brew, perfect for any occasion. The popular and local Crowsnest Coffee Roasters supply the perfect blend of coffee beans. “They are added to the mash, along with a decadent amount of chocolate, Black Prinz and Roasted Malts. Add some milk sugar, and you get a stout with amazing flavours and dreamy smoothness,” says FBC’s Brewmaster, Gord Demaniuk. Dressed in our distinctive design, with the locally recognisable illustration of Thunder Meadows Cabin, one of Fernie’s most popular backcountry ski huts.
Java The Hut debuted just before Christmas in Fernie, and went into wider distribution this week in a limited run of 650 ml bottles at select stores in British Columbia and Alberta.
The brewery has also revealed the names and brief descriptions for a pair of new additions to its Bucket List IPA series. The new instalments will increase the frequency of the series from quarterly to bi-monthly, with the following release schedule:
- February – Quiet Rye’t Rye IPA
- April – NEW: The Eldorado IPA (“single hop IPA with lemongrass”)
- June – Last Cast Summer IPA
- August – NEW: The Real Peel Grapefruit IPA (“lighter unfiltered IPA, with bold citrusy and grapefruit flavours”)
- October – Rockpile Red IPA
