Two New Spinnakers Beers For The Holidays

December 8, 2010

Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub has announced plans to release two holiday beers later this month.

Arriving first on December 15th will be Spinnakers Festive Saison, a 5.5% traditional saison that will feature “earthy yeast tones, mild to moderate tartness. Lots of spice and with a medium bitterness.”

Following on December 22nd is Spinnakers Happy New Beer, a 4.5% Belgian style Witbier that is “brewed with malted wheat & barley from the Saanich Peninsula, Saanich grown coriander and Silk Road Tea’s Chamomile tea.”

Both beers will be available on tap at the Brewpub, and in 650 ml bottles at select private liquor stores in and around Victoria.

Shamelessly stolen from Canadian Beer News. Seems like Uber Blonde was only just released. I was just at a Spinnakers Liquor Merchants today and never saw it.

    Do you know if this is a brand new release or a re release? I’ve had a couple of their beers and enjoyed it and I’m not trying to disrespect them in any way, but I wonder if the release of a Saison and a Witbier around the same time, is influenced by the success of another Brewery in Victoria that’s had a lot of success recently.

  2. They should be new completely new beers. I don’t think the choice on the styles has anything to do with pressure from Driftwood, as these beers are seasonal and Spinnakers have been doing Belgian-styled beers for many years now.

    True, good point.
