Phillips Reduces The 100 Mile Diet To 24 With New Beer

August 10, 2010

From the e-mail I received

Since installing an eternally flowing porchside beer fountain could be both expensive and bad for your liver, Phillips 24-Mile Blueberry Pail Ale is the next best thing in terms of backyard ales. Every ingredient used to craft this refreshing beer has travelled 24 miles or less from farm to brew kettle. First, water from the Sooke reservoir is blended with barley, grown and malted locally by Mike Doehnel. Then we added a pile of Cascade hops from Vic Davies Saanich farm and fresh blueberries from Farmer Phil. All this deliciousness was activated by Yeast Wrangler Ben’s unique house-strain of ale yeast and you are off to the flavour races. You might want a bib for this one, as there is a certain shirt-staining potential from all those berries.

This is an extremely limited batch of beer and in the locavore spirit, the brew will only be available at cold beer stores in the Victoria area, as well as here at the brewery.

Thanks for drinking local!
