VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the release of four limited edition beers – three returning favourites, and one new offering – for the autumn season.
Gourd-flavoured siblings Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale and Crookeder Tooth Barrel Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale have been joined by the new Toothless Pumpkin Sour Ale, and the hops harvest is being celebrated with the 2016 edition of Green Reaper Fresh Hop IPA.
Beer descriptions are as follows:
Crooked Tooth combines fresh pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg with a full-bodied ale. It’s a witches brew packed full of fall harvest flavour that, like many ghostly spirits of the season, has a tendency to disappear quickly.
Crookeder Tooth is brewed full-bodied with loads of fresh pumpkin and then carefully aged in selected freshly-emptied whiskey barrels. The result is a slightly sweet, gently spiced brew that blends fresh pumpkin flavours with soft velvet vanilla.
Toothless Pumpkin Ale was picked from the sour side of the patch. Fresh pumpkin is gently spiced and carefully inoculated with Lactobacillus, balancing spiced malt sweetness with a bright sour bite that finishes puckeringly dry.
Green Reaper is a fresh-hop apparition sent to collect your taste buds and guide them to the aftertaste. The hops aren’t dried; they are delivered fresh to the brewhouse within 24 hours maximizing hoppy flavour. Full-cone Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops give this year’s Reaper a delicious hop kick.
All four beers are available now in 650 ml bottles at select craft beer focused private liquor stores in British Columbia, with Crooked Tooth and Crookeder Tooth also available at BC Liquor locations, while supplies last.
