VICTORIA, BC – Swans Brewpub has announced the release of a limited edition beer that was more than a year in the making.
Swans Biere de Garde (7.6% abv) is a strong ale that Swans brewmaster Chris Lukie describes as follows:
This brew began on the First of December and has been sitting cold since the 13th of December 2016. The date is top left. I never made a beer like this before. I really did not know what it would become. This is what one year of cellaring tastes like though if you ever wondered. I like it… like my job.
Biere de Garde was released on December 31st, and is available exclusively at Swans while supplies last.
