TOP 5 Beers

The one we have all been waiting for after sampling 109 different craft/microbrew beers across this great country I narrowed down my top 5. A very tough call, and a little biased since I most enjoy a hoppy IPA.

1) HOP HEAD BLACK IPA (Tree Brewery) — this is the king of beers, step aside Budweiser. Not for the faint of heart Hop Head Black IPA is a combination of a Stout and a hoppy IPA. From Kelowna this beer doesn’t carry the coffee hints, more like a Guinness and is silky smooth with a bitter aftertaste. Like nothing I have had before…if you can find the Penombre by St Jermome, it’s worth a try.

2) BEST BITTER (Picaroons) — if you like Hops with a soft bitter edge this Fredericton is your beer. Fact is this brewery doesn’t have a dissapointing beer including Yippie IPA, Dark and Stormy Night and Irish Red.

3) Le TRINQUEUR (Brasseurs du Monde) — this is a scotch ale from St Hyancinthe is high alcohol 9% but not on the nose or mouth. Toasted or carmelized malt with coriander. Again, one of the few scotch ales I have tried. Very impressed and again not for the average beer drinker and best with food (recommend lamb, or steak and kidney pie)

4) NASTY HABIT IPA (Mt Begbie Brewery) — this is a classic in your face IPA from Revelstoke, everything I like about this style of ale. Cooper orange colour, sour malts and citrus aftertaste that lingers.

5) LITTLE SCRAPPER IPA (Half Pint Brewery) — highly recommend this Winnipeg beer to those wanting to introduce themselves to IPAs. A symphony of grapefruit and pine malt flavour. Orange colour with a clean crisp hop.
