SQUAMISH, BC – Howe Sound Brewing has announced the release of a beer inspired by the history of the local forestry industry as its newest seasonal brand.
Log Driver Juniper Rye IPA is a 5.5% abv and 45 IBU ale brewed with rye, juniper berries, and Simcoe and Chinook hops. It’s described by brewer Simon Jongsma as follows:
The idea behind making our new Log Driver Juniper Rye IPA was to brew an American style Rye IPA that was loaded with a lot of resinous pine notes and bright citrus tones. Springtime in Squamish means getting outside and spending sunny days in the forest and that’s really what we tried to capture with this beer. It’s a refreshing and flavourful IPA that uses piney hops and Juniper berries to showcase a great ingredient.
Log Driver Juniper Rye IPA is available now in 1 litre bottles at select private and government liquor stores in British Columbia.
