WHITEHORSE, YK – Yukon Brewing has announced the release of a new limited edition beer brewed using a locally foraged ingredient.
Land of the Tree Spruce Tip APA is a 5.9% abv ale described as follows:
This past spring was a bumper crop for spruce tips in the Yukon. We took advantage of that to make a spruce tip gin (Spring Forest) but we still had some left over. We froze them and pondered where and when they could best be used. With the holiday season upon us, we came upon the idea of using them in our American Pale Ale. The hops used in this beer bring tropical, citrus/berry notes that we felt would be perfectly offset by the pungent spruce tip flavour. This beer is delightfully golden in colour and medium in body, bursting with hop and spruce flavours.
Land of the Tree is available now for growler fills at the Yukon Brewing retail store while supplies last.
