BURNABY, BC – Dageraad Brewing has announced the release of a new draught-only beer inspired by a sweet snack enjoyed by owner and brewer Ben Coli.
Lekkers Spiced Dark Ale (5.6% abv) is described as follows:
Ben was at home eating some Belgian chocolate with candied orange peel in it when he had an idea for a beer…
Okay, it’s not a super original idea for a beer, but the beer is very good. The orange peel is fairly subtle, and there’s no actual chocolate in it, just some roast malt. There’s also a cool over-ripe cherry flavour coming from the Trappist ale yeast we used to ferment the beer. The overall balance is richer, fuller and a bit less crisp than Dageraad Beers usually are, but it’s very appropriate for the beer.
Lekkers is available now in the Dageraad taproom by the glass and in growlers. It will also be on tap at select bars and restaurants while supplies last.
