SCHANK’D IT  — Berliner Weisse falls into a category of beers called Schankbier, which is an encompassing term for low alcohol beer in Germany. Traditionally this style is an effervescent wheat ale that is light, sour, and refreshing.  Alley Kat used a unique blend of lactobacillus cultures to sour this Berliner Weisse. To compliment the sourness, they partnered with their friends at Acquired Taste Tea Company to source hibiscus flowers. The flowers turn this wheat ale a beautiful shade of rosy pink, and as a bonus, they make us feel pretty.

SUNBURST SESSION ALE — Alley Kat’s summer seasonal is a light, unfiltered session ale with bright notes of fresh pineapple and citrus fruit. Citra hops provide a juicy and refreshing flavour with no accompanying bitterness. Thirst quenching and easy to drink, we think this might just be your new patio beer.

Phillips Stump Coastal Forest Gin & Tonic
Friday, June 23rd – 3 p.m. ’til 6 p.m.

Created entirely in-house at the Phillips dd7e54c9-8f0f-4e6d-aba0-2505dcbd5628Fermentorium. The low wines are first distilled on a 1920’s British-made still affectionately christened ‘Old George’ before being refined in a new German-built refractory still. Finally, the gin is redistilled with BC-grown botanicals creating a spirit featuring a rich velvety mouth feel and punctuated with coastal rainforest flavours. It’s a gin that is not only influenced by the BC environment, but actually made from it!

Phillips is very excited to announce the release of four brand new hand-crafted tonics! The second product to emerge from the Phillips Fermentorium, these tonics are made without any artificial flavours or liquid sugars. Instead, real ingredients and time-honoured extraction techniques endow the tonics with full, natural flavours, and balance tart with the subtle sweetness of raw cane sugar.
