Spinnakers Brewpub Releases Hummingbird Hop Saison

VICTORIA, BC – Spinnakers Brewpub has launched of a new seasonal beer that pays tribute to an unexpected guest in the brewery as well as the recently announced Official City Bird of Vancouver.

Hummingbird Hop Saison was “inspired by a little Hummingbird that had made its way into the brewery one day. After we chose the name we found out the release would coincide with the electing of the same bird as Vancouver’s Official Bird and we’re thrilled we could tie them together.”

The 5.5% abv ale is described as follows:

A West Coast take on a classic Style. Brewed with Pilsner malt and oats this medium bodied beer balances the spicy characteristics of saison with a pleasant bitterness and citrus notes thanks to a blended new world dry hop addition. The refreshingly dry finish will leave you humming for more.

Hummingbird Hop Saison will be available in 650 ml bottles and on tap at Spinnakers while supplies last.
