Winter I.P.A.

 STORY

Against the grain. 

During the height of the so-called Little Ice Age, the bitterly harsh winters caused canals and rivers to freeze. Amid bone-chilling temperatures people turned from wine to beer as grains were greater survivors of cold than grapes.

INSPIRATION

In tribute to going against the grape, we go against the grain by crafting a White IPA rather than the typical dark beers common in the winter months.

Spruce needles
Not quite a vegetable and not quite an herb, spruce may be an unconventional ingredient found in beer.  But spruce beer goes way back and this intriguing botanical delivers all kinds of interesting characteristics to our Winter I.P.A.

Juniper berries
There is so much more to this flavour-packed berry than gin… Piny, resinous, perfumy and pungent; it is the perfect botanical for our refreshing Winter I.P.A. on cold winter days.

FOOD PAIRING

The Lowlander approach to beer and food pairing is simple: beer is even better with food and food is even better with beer.

Our new Winter I.P.A. is a sessionableconcoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips and juniper berries, while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper. Perfect to pair with slow beef and beer stew, creamy cheeses like oven baked camembert but also a surprisingly well fit with spicy seafood.
