Craft Beer Club March Selection

Craft Beer Club March Selection

I don’t know if it is because I have my head wrapped into planning an amazing trip but most beers this month brought me on a little escape somewhere else… A few brought me on a road trip in Alberta, some others across Canada and a lot of them on had a breeze from the ocean and/or a beach vibe… It must be spring inspirations! I hope you can feel the ocean breeze and the sun warmth for the moment of a sip. Cheers!

Dieu du Ciel, Montreal, Qc

This brewery has a special place in my heart. It was located between my apartment and University when I was a student. I spent several evening “studying” with friends at the brewery.

Rose d’Hibiscus - Yes, it is the one I was drinking back then;) They have been brewing it since 2006! It is a wheat ale brewed with hibiscus flowers. It gives the beer a nice pink color, floral and grapefruit notes. It is quenchable and pairs well with spring or a summer patio day. ABV 5.9%

Immortalite American IPA - Double dry hopped IPA . What is double dry hopped IPA? It means they added hops post fermentation on 2 different occasions. This process adds depth and complexity to the beer. The Immortality was also brewed with Lulupin powder. Lulupin powder is a fine yellow powder that can be separated out from the green leaves of the hop itself, sort of like pollen from a flower. It countains hight amount of hop acid and essencial oils. It is a beer for the hop fanatics big and bold! ABV 9.2%
