FERNIE, BC – Fernie Brewing has announced details of a trio of seasonal releases for early spring.
Slow Drift Witbier – previously known as Ol’ Willy Wit – is back in a new format (473 ml cans replacing the previous 650 ml bombers) and is described as follows:
Retaining its distinctively refreshing sky blue and citrus yellow block colours, to match the new name it instead features an illustration of fly fishing on the local Elk River. As the perfect beer to partner with the perfect day in the mountains or on the water, this light and spicy citrus flavoured brew remains a fast and firm FBC favourite
Old Barn Saison is back for a second year, and has the following tasting notes:
A very aromatic and flavourful golden brew, with spicy, peppery and fruity notes. The classic New Zealand Pacific Jade hops makes for a very engaging hop profile for this beer. Surprisingly light, but packs a punch of flavour to enjoy.
Eldorado Single Hop IPA is also back as the latest in the brewery’s rotating IPA Series:
Last year, this IPA was a hot commodity and with its limited quantities, left a lot of people on the hop. Eldorado Hop is the focus of this single hop, unfiltered IPA, with a distinctive Lemongrass addition to provide a little extra citrus zing to the distinctive stone fruit flavours.
All three beers are available now in the Fernie retail store and tasting room, and will be distributed to select stores and licensees in BC and Alberta in early April.
