Phillips Releases 2017 Benefit Brews & Brings Back Space Goat

VICTORIA, BCPhillips Brewing has announced the release of the two winning beers from the Benefit Brew 2017 competition, as well as an annual seasonal brand that has “floated back into orbit.”

The Benefit Brew release for British Columbia is S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue Imperial Pilsner, which will raise funds to help S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue meet its mission to provide sanctuary for senior and special needs animals. The 7% abv beer will be available in private beer stores in B.C., and is described as follows:

The brew pours a pale straw colour with light white foam. Herbal and grassy notes mingle with noble hop and sweet malt characteristics.

In Alberta, Benefit Brew supporters will be able to pick up Zoe’s Animal Rescue Cascadian Dark Ale in support of Zoe’s Animal Rescue to help them foster, rehabilitate, heal and re-home animals in Edmonton. The 6.2% ale has the following notes:

The Cascadian Dark Ale pours a dark ruby brown colour with a light tan froth. Aromas of freshly roasted coffee and toasted malts are balanced by sharper spiced notes of pine and herbs. The bitterness up front yields to a crisp dry finish.

Finally, Space Goat Dry Hopped Oat Pale Ale is back for a second year, and is described as follows:

This adventurous brew is an oat pale ale that is generously dry-hopped, infusing tropical and citrus hop notes with a deep, silky oat ale texture. Pouring a golden straw colour, the nose is full of fresh papaya and guava. A round graininess is softened with a silky mouth feel provided by the oats, with subtle sweetness balanced against a wonderful tropical hop background.

Space Goat will be available at private beer stores in B.C. for a limited time.
