You might already be too late. Today is the day Driftwood Sartori Harvest IPA hit the shelves, sometime around eleven this morning. Brewery Creek has a three bottle maximum and were already down four of fifteen cases within an hour of shipment at noon today. Viti has a two bottle maximum and were down two cases out of six when I got there at one. Yeah, I was on my game today. Anyway, the point is, fly like the wind to your nearest quality beer store or miss out and lament.
If you don’t know, Driftwood Sartori is the consensus best beer in BC. It’s brewed once a year with still-wet hops freshly harvested from Sartori Cedar Ranch. It’s also brewed with barley malted by artisanal maltster and islander Mike Doehnel. And then partial proceeds are donated to the Land Conservancy of BC, making this beer all sorts of local and rad.
I’ve delayed tasting this year’s batch to send you this alert, but I expect it to be as good as previous years. If you’re wondering how good that is, it’s seriously excellent. Check out some past reviews. Also, for more info checkout the Province’s recently posted interview with the brewer.
Here’s hoping you get some!
