GIBSONS, BC – A new brewery and taproom is getting set to open soon in Gibsons, a town in British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast region.
Gibsons Tapworks is being launched by three friends at 537 Cruice Lane, a building located close to the shore in the Lower Gibsons area, and just steps from Molly’s Reach, the restaurant made famous in The Beachcombers television series.
While the finishing touches are still worked on at the brewery, the Gibsons team recently visited Moody Ales to brew one of their recipes on the pilot system. The result – HWY 102 Oat Stout – is now on tap at Moody, and is described as follows:
This beer has a smooth roast character with a touch of sweetness. The rounded mouthfeel is attributed to a healthy dose of oats and the slight chocolate roast flavour is a result of the roast barley and pale chocolate malts. With an ABV of 5.0% and IBU of 22, this is a beer you can sit down with and spend some time.
