Two New Lighthouse Brews

April 20, 2011

Alrighty! We have two new beers coming from Lighthouse and one seasonal returning.

First up is the next in the Big Flavour series, an Imperial Pilsner named “Overboard”.

Lighthouse Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of our newest beer. Overboard Imperial Pilsner is the fourth 650mL offering in our “Big Flavour” series and is only available for a limited time. This great new beer will be available in private retail stores on April 29, 2011.

Overboard Imperial Pilsner has an intense flavour profile and a strong 8.5% alc/vol. A long cool fermentation with a pure pilsner yeast strain creates a very unique spicy flavour and a soft malty body. Considered to be one of the best hops in the world, and straight off the vines from the 2010 German harvest, Hallertau Mittlefruh is the only hop used in this beer. This pilsner is crystal clear with a rich golden colour and is best enjoyed well chilled and served in a stemmed tulip glass.

Lighthouse Brewing Company is a Victoria B.C. premium craft brewery dedicated to producing unique, high quality, non pasteurized beers. To learn more about Lighthouse Brewing please visit us on the web at Label artwork for Overboard was provided by current Victoria B.C. resident and artist EFOX.

Next up is Cream Ale that you’ll only find in the upcoming Mixed Pack. There were early samples of it at a recent CAMRA Victoria event. It was well received.

Brewed as a modern take on traditional pre-prohibition cream ales, Lighthouse Cream Ale glows a burnished orange and drinks with a silky smooth mouth feel. Vienna and Cara malts add richness and depth of flavour, and new season whole-leaf New Zealand hops lend enticing floral and tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and fragrant, clean and compelling, Lighthouse Cream Ale is the perfect farewell to a setting west coast sun.

Two new beers isn’t enough for Lighthouse, they’re also bringing back their Scottish Ale, Highland Challenge Scottish Ale. It should be in store this week. It is brewed in commemoration for the 148th Victoria Highland Games and Celtic Festival in Victoria at Topaz Park on May 21 and 22, 2011.
