WHITEHORSE, YK – Winterlong Brewing has announced that a popular seasonal brand brewed using an ingredient foraged from local forests will be returning this weekend.
Spruce Tip Pale Ale (5% abv) is described as follows:
For this beer we harvest spruce tips each spring, enough for several batches to last us through the summer months. It’s a fun foraging activity we look forward to every year and requires expert timing and many hours of battling prickly spruce boughs. This year thankfully we had many little helping hands! With our recipe and brewing process we get a slight candy-like, citrusy sweetness and unique raspberry flavour out of the spruce tips, so it’s not overwhelmingly piney or sappy.
This year’s first batch of Spruce Tip Pale Ale will be released tomorrow (Saturday June 8th) at 12:00 noon in the Winterlong taproom and retail store.
