Granville Island Brewing recently released their latest seasonal special, ginger beer. I tried this beer last year and found it to be one of the better ginger beers. The ginger flavor is noticeable but not over the top and fiery. Here is the press release. Enjoy.
The Wait for the Warmth is Over – Granville Island Brewing Brings Back Limited Release Ginger Beer
Vancouver, BC – We know every season offers something unique in Vancouver, and Granville Island Brewing’s latest limited release is no exception. On June 4, 2010, it is time to heat things up as we roll out Ginger Beer.
“GIB’s version of a traditional ginger beer is the perfect combination of spicy Caribbean warmth and refreshing taste, making it the ideal summer refreshment,” says Vern Lambourne, Brew Master, Granville Island Brewing.
“This specialty brew has all the elements of a craft brew – including ginger chopped by hand!”
Ginger Beer combines water, malt, hops and yeast with fresh hand chopped ginger root to create that perfect taste. GIB recommends this premium beer with spicy Jamaican Jerk, or milder foods like sushi for a less adventurous palette. The incredible aroma of ginger and spice emulates a beach day in the Caribbean.
Ginger Beer is available in individual bottles for 6 weeks only, in select liquor and beer stores across Vancouver and in our retail store on Granville Island. Vancouver – stock up on this great tasting brew while you can.
