25 Apr Yours to Discover
On March 26th a special thing happened – A collaboration beer was brewed at Great Lakes in partnership with The Terroir Symposium.
GLB and Beau’s All Natural Brewery worked on an All Ontario pale ale using ingredients from VQH Farms (Hops), Escarpment Labs (Yeast) and Barn Owl Malt. The beer, which made its debut at the 2018 Terroir Symposium on April 23rd, turned out fantastic.
The yeast used from Escarpment is affectionately known as “Wild Thing” which added a unique Belgian touch to both the aroma and flavour of the beer. Think bubblegum, clove, pepper. The hops from VQH, both Chinook and Cascade, lended themselves nicely and provide notes of grapefruit and pineapple ending with a refreshing bitterness. The malt provided a backbone to all those wonderful hops while adding it’s own distinct biscuity character.
This is the behind the scenes video of the actual brew day.
Please note that cans of Yours to Discover Pale Ale are now available in the GLB retail store and are limited in numbers.
