BACK ALLEY BREWS
HOT TROPIC PINEAPPLE KVEIK
Our latest in the Back Alley Brew Series, Hot Tropic Pineapple Kveik. Starting as a Brewer's Choice beer this Pineapple Kveik (pronounce "kuh-vike", "quake", or "qu-ike") was created by one for our brewer's, Jim. He's been wanting to work pineapple into a brew for over 10 years and he finally got the chance! Knowing he wanted to make something tropical, we thought using a unique yeast, like Kveik, would really accentuate the pineapple flavour. Next came the hops. El Dorado hops bring out the tropical aromas and flavours like pineapple, mango, and passionfruit!

WHAT IS OUR B.A.B. SERIES?
Every two months, our brewing team gets to showcase their skills and creativity in whatever weird and wonderful way strikes their mood (... and we can attest, they are all both weird AND wonderful!)
The brewers will get and idea and we'll start working on a small "test batch", which is about 20L or so. We'll taste it, adjust, and brew it again and again until we are happy with the beer. These one-off brews are what make up our Back Alley Brew series! They're limited releases but the sky's the limit for this series!
To give you a bit of an idea: we brewed a Wee Heavy Braggot dubbed "Crossing Streams" with mead from Fallen Timber Meadery, "Dale’s Coffee Pale Ale" made with locally roasted coffee, "Ocean Pearl" Gose with tons of fresh cucumbers and sea salt, and "Old Jakes' Dark Saison" made with French Saison Yeast)! ... All we're saying is that they're wacky, wonderful, and you gotta try them before they're gone!
