VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced it is “branching out from the usual” with a new seasonal brand.
Sky High Grand Fir Ale is a 5% abv pale ale described as follows:
Sky High Grand Fir Ale is brewed with freshly harvested grand fir boughs which are added directly into the kettle. It is a pine ale that avoids the overtly resinous in favour of a brighter, more nuanced character featuring citrus and evergreen. Pours a light straw colour with a full frothy white head. Soft aromas of sweet fir leads to a bright pine flavour profile accented with notes of citrus and rosewater. Finishes with a subtle lingering bitterness.
Sky High will be on sale for a limited time at select private liquor stores in BC. It will also be available to sample on draught during a launch event at the Phillips brewery this Thursday January 7th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
