West Coasters may love their IPAs, but if British Columbia were to be interpreted as a beer, this would be it.
The latest offering from Pacific Western Brewing Co., this “100 percent B.C. beer” uses malt sourced from Armstrong, hops from Chilliwack, and Rocky Mountain spring water.
One sip of this blond brew will evoke earthy pine, fresh mountain air, and a cool, invigorating ocean. An entire bottle, meanwhile, will remind you exactly why B.C. is sometimes named one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Find it in six-packs at Brewery Creek Liquor Store (3045 Main Street).
