SASKATOON, SK – Great Western Brewing has announced a new addition to its Original 16 line-up of brands named in honour of the sixteen founders of the brewery.

Original 16 Prairie White (4.8% abv) is a Belgian-style wheat ale with the following description:

Following the tradition and standards set by our founders, Prairie White is patiently brewed from Saskatchewan two-row barley, spring wheat and choice hop varietals. Adding the zest of premium oranges and Saskatchewan coriander creates refreshing citrus notes with a subtle spice. Its slightly cloudy appearance is proof that we’d never filter out the rich, complex flavours.

Original 16 Prairie White was launched in late January, and is available at SLGA stores across Saskatchewan in 15-packs of 355 ml cans, as well as in an Original 16 mixer pack containing 6 cans each of Prairie White and Pale Ale.

OTTAWA, ON – Kichesippi Beer Co. has announced that a beer originally released for a limited time last spring has returned, and is now a year-round brand.

Remic Rapids IPA (6% abv, 60 IBU) has the following back-story and description:

Our inspiration for this beer was the incredible rock sculptures that have been created along the shores of the Ottawa River since 1986. Local artist John Felicè Ceprano builds these every year for the enjoyment of thousands of tourists and locals. This partnership with Ceprano, the NCC and Ottawa Tourism is definitely a hidden gem in our city. The beer itself is brewed to be as balanced as these rock sculptures and fits in to the category of a West Coast IPA.

Remic Rapids IPA is available now in 473 ml cans at the Kichesippi retail store.

VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing is continuing the 2018 edition of FeBREWary – a month of weekly beer launches and related events – with the release of a beer inspired by the national beverage of Japan.

Do No Evil Sake Lager (6% abv, 30 IBU) is described as follows:

Do No Evil was brewed with organic rice added to the mixture of barley malts, then cold-aged on oak stars that have been soaked in sake, which makes an apt accompaniment to its fellow fermented beverage made from grain. A traditional lager provides a clean background for the subtle fruit and wine-like character imparted by accents of rice and sake. Do No Evil pours brilliant gold with a dense white foam. The aroma expresses white grape, lychee, and cereal grain. The flavour imparts tannin and sweet fruit notes with a firm but balanced bitterness. The finish presents refreshing white pepper notes.

Do No Evil will be available on tap at over 370 bars and pubs across Ontario and Quebec, and in 600 ml bottles at the Beau’s retail store starting February 22nd.

For more details on this and other beer releases planned for the month, see the FeBREWary page on the Beau’s website.

VICTORIA, BC – Category 12 Brewing has announced the fourth annual release of its “signature limited release” beer.

Transmutation Belgian Specialty Ale (9.6% abv) is a Belgian Tripel style ale with the following origin story:

This beer truly started it all. In the early days of Michael’s homebrewing, he tended to only brew hop-forward beers. These beers didn’t interest Karen at all… until he made Transmutation. A mutation of a Belgian Tripel, Michael added more hops, and added handcrafted amber candi sugar to increase the ABV without adding maltiness. We follow that exact process to this day! With Karen’s interest sufficiently piqued, Michael had the support he needed to turn his passion into a business…

Transmutation is now available in growlers and 650 ml bottles at the brewery, with bottles shipping this week to select private liquor stores in British Columbia.

ABBOTSFORD, BC – Ravens Brewing has announced details of two new sour ales that are being released this week.

Named after a pair of ravens from Norse mythology that fly across the world and bring information to Odin, Huginn Barrel Aged Dark Sour (6% abv) and Muninn Dark Sour with Black Currant (6% abv) were brewed to the same base recipe, but then headed in different directions once brewing was complete:

Oak aged in red wine barrels for three months Hugginn presents a different take on the dark sour. Pouring deep brown with flavours of oak and wine and buttery richness.

Munnin is a Dark Kettle Sour with the addition of Black Currant and pours a crimson red. Dark fruit and wine notes lead to a tart finish.

Both beers will be officially launched on Friday February 23rd at the brewery, and will be available in 650 ml bottles and on tap while supplies last. For more details, see the Facebook event listing.

TORONTO, ON – Innis & Gunn has announced that a limited edition beer developed in collaboration with Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey is now available in Canada.

Kindred Spirits (6.1% abv) is described as follows:

Using a unique barrel ageing process developed by the brewing team at Innis & Gunn, Kindred Spirits is matured using the finest triple distilled, triple blend Irish whiskey barrels from Tullamore D.E.W. to create a smooth and delicious Scottish Stout that is greater than the sum of its parts. The result is a one of a kind craft stout – a perfect pairing of the character of Innis & Gunn’s rich flavour packed beer, and the sweet, spicy, smooth taste of Tullamore D.E.W., with notes of dark chocolate and coffee alongside hints of vanilla and oak.

To promote the release of Kindred Spirits, members of two bands – Ireland’s Ash and Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit – recorded a version of the traditional Scottish folk song “Wild Mountain Thyme” (aka “Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go?”) which has been posted on YouTube under the name Kindred Sessions.

Kindred Spirits is available now in 330 ml bottles at liquor retailers in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. For details on availability and pricing, check with local retailers.
