As previously mentioned in my Whistler Dark And Stormy review, my friend Evan owns a sailboat. What was not specified however, is that instead of sailing the boat, he lives in the boat. And since that seemed a shame to both of us, we decided to take her out for a spin!
Over the last couple of years I have reviewed several beers that can only be found in stores at this time of year. So for your convenience, I have decided to put them all together into one post to help you navigate the oft’ overwhelming realm of the Winter ale/Christmas ale/Seasonal release shelves. This post is mostly applicable to British Columbia, but certain brews may be available in other jurisdictions too!
When my Newfie friend James came to visit me, he brought with him a suitcase full of mediocre Newfoundland beer. Now he knew that most of the brews were inferior, but he also knew that they would be a novelty for us out here in BC, and so he brought them to show us a sample of what is brewed on the rock.
During his stay with me, my soccer team had a game, and so James kept himself busy on the sideline with some Granville Island brews, a novelty for him. When I injured myself during the first half, I got to spend the rest of the game drinking with James.
