New This Week on the Growler Bar

In the last couple weeks we’ve added some new additions to our Growler Bar. We have a new Bench Creek beer replacing their IPA, a new Alley Kat replacing their Coffee Porter, and Anchor Brewing replacing Fuller’s Black Stout.

Alley Kat Ginger Beer - $8.49/L

The Alley Kat Ginger beer is different than most ginger beers; the ginger doesn’t overpower the senses. On the nose you notice the balance between the ginger and malt aromas with an amazing follow through on the palate. Only a hint of sweetness is present with a nice zesty finish. Crisp and refreshing at 5.1% ABV, this beer is perfect for pairing with cashew chicken stir fry and jasmine rice.

Anchor Brekle’s Brown Ale - $9.99/L

Brekle’s Brown is the epitome of classic brown ale. It starts with roasted malt on the nose and a hint of citrus and sweet caramel. The hint of citrus is also apparent on the palate with the citra hops creating a unique texture on the finish. Only 6% ABV this beer is the adult version of an Ice Cream Truck on a hot day.

Bench Creek Naked Woodsman Pale Ale - $6.99/L

Bench Creek is a fairly new brewery (not even open for a whole year yet) that has been making big waves, especially at our growler bar! Our first Bench Creek beer was their White Raven IPA, which was a huge hit and now we’ve brought in their Naked Woodsman Pale Ale. This beer starts off refreshingly fruity with grapefruit and orange filling the air followed by hints of malt and sweetness. The palate is just as intricate with peach and apricot flavours coating the mouth. This beer finishes with a light crispness that has a punch of star of anise spice to leave you with a lingering flavour. At the moment Bench Creek is only available in growlers, but keep an eye out as the brewery is making plans on releasing their amazing selection in cans!
