VANCOUVER, BC – Granville Island Brewing has announced a new beer in its Small Batch Series that will be the first brand in the series to be available on a year-round basis.
West Coast Pale Ale is a 5.5% abv and 38 IBU ale with the following description:
Many would say that West Coast Pale Ale style started the craft beer movement in North America. Thanks to its rich malt flavour and noticeable but not overpowering hops, this beer style never goes out of style. Compared to our English Bay Pale Ale, expect this West Coast Pale Ale to have a more noticeable hop flavour. Brewmaster Kevin Emms brewed this beer with Australian hops, which give it subtle tropical fruit notes and a smooth finish thanks to premium malts sourced from northern England.
West Coast Pale Ale is available now in the Granville Island taproom and retail store, and will be rolled out soon at select liquor retailers and bars in British Columbia.
