VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the release of four new beers, including its first ever nitro beer, a new late winter seasonal, and the two winning beers from the Benefit Brew 2015 competition.
Here are the details of the quartet:
Odyssey Nitro Porter (5% abv) – “Odyssey is a porter infused with nitrogen gas, which creates cascading clouds of tiny bubbles that give way to thick dense foam. This luxurious brew pours a deep earthy brown colour, and features warm roasted flavours accented with hints of nuts and dark chocolate, all wrapped up in velvet smooth textures.” [Available in 473 ml cans at select private liquor stores in B.C., and soon in Alberta.]
Cereal Killer Imperial Rye Lager (7.2% abv) – “Beginning as a full-bodied imperial lager, a murderous amount of rye thickens the plot, adding a subtle spice note to a deliciously balanced brew. Pours a deep amber colour with a medium off-white head. Fruit esters on the nose lead to full flavours of toasted rye bread underpinned with subtle sweetness. Cold conditioned for a very smooth mouthfeel that finishes clean.” [Available in 650 ml bottles at select private liquor stores in B.C.]
Dogwood Rescue Society Red Lager (5% abv) – “Dogwood Rescue Society’s mission is to re-home homeless, unwanted or abused sporting and working dogs. It’s a message that resonated with craft beer drinkers as they were chosen as the 2015 BC Benefit Brew winner! Full proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to help them provide the same amazing service they have been for the last 30 years.” [Available in 650 ml bottles at select private liquor stores in B.C., primarily in Vancouver and Victoria areas.]
Edmonton & Area Land Trust Oatmeal Brown Ale (5% abv) – “Chosen by the public as the 2015 Benefit Brew winner, the Edmonton & Area Land Trust works to benefit wildlife and people by protecting natural areas and preserving biodiversity for future generations to come. Full proceeds from the sale of this brew will go to help them continue to do that incredible work.” [Available in 650 ml bottles at select liquor stores in Alberta.]
