Tree Brewing’s Hefeweizen, crafted by the German Braumeister Stefan Buhl, won a gold medal at the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards. Individual bottles are already sold out at the brewery, so you’ll have to check the Private stores or pick up a Summer Character Pack with the Hefeweizen, Kelowna Pilsner, Thirsty Beaver Amber and new Beach Blonde Lager.
There’s a couple of refreshing fruit beers now available: Whistler Brewing’s Paradise Valley Grapefruit Ale and Granville Island’s False Creek Raspberry Ale. For a little warmth in the cooler evenings, Driftwood Brewing has released a new batch of their Belle Royale Strong Cherry Belgian Ale.
Pacific Western Brewing has just launched their new Cariboo Pale Ale. It’s 5.5% abv, finished with Cascade hops, and lists at only $7.99 for a 6-pack of cans!
