Fernie Brewing Brings Back Snowblind IPA & Retires The Griz Pale Ale

FERNIE, BC – Fernie Brewing has announced the return of the winter installment in its rotating Limited Release IPA Series, as well as the retirement of one of its longest standing core brands.

Back for the next couple of months is Snowblind Belgian-Style IPA (7.9% abv, 78 IBU) which is described as follows:

This popular IPA combines the traditional Belgian IPA style with some of the newest hop varieties from Australia and New Zealand. Dry hopped for aroma, and enhanced with oat flakes, this unfiltered brew is a true treat for IPA lovers.

Snowblind is available now in 650 ml bottles at the Fernie retail store and select private liquor stores in British Columbia, with distribution to Manitoba and Alberta to follow soon.

Not available for much longer, however, is The Griz Pale Ale, which is being sidelined in favour of the recently introduced Base Camp West Coast Pale Ale. Cans and kegs can still be found at some locations throughout British Columbia and Alberta, but once current stocks are depleted, The Griz will be gone for good.
