Every year, Vancouver Craft Beer Week brings the province’s craft breweries together to brew a beer in the spirit of collaboration. To celebrate its first decade, VCBW partnered with Four Winds Brewing Co., Dageraad Brewing, and Powell Brewery to develop the official 2019 VCBW collaboration beer, Ten, a dry-hopped table saison.
Drawing on the summer brew’s exotic fruit flavours, Pourhouse bar manager Adam Domet created the Good Decade cocktail, with fresh mandarin notes and a sweet nuttiness. Happy anniversary, VCBW.
The Good Decade
- 3 oz Ten, VCBW’s 10th-anniversary ale
- 1½ oz Kunizakari Mandarin Orange Mikan sake
- 2 tsp Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
- 4 tsp fresh lime juice
Rim a long glass with salt and fill it with ice. Mix all ingredients except for beer in a shaker with ice. Shake for 10 seconds or until well chilled. Pour into glass and top with Ten. Garnish with an orange twist.
