Manitoba has just recently aloud growlers to be sold in the province. The laws are a little different than in BC though as you have to get the fills at Manitoba Government Liquor Stores or the brewery. One of the first beer that Winnipeg’s Half Pints Brewing released as part of their new growler lineup is the “Dead Ringer” a Belgian IPA. Half Pints Brewing is making one off beers as part of this growler series and this is one of them. The beer pours a golden orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, citrus and floral hops although it was mild. The flavour is of Belgian yeast, citrus, malts, sweetness and hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.9% with an IBU of 45. Much like every beer made by Half Pints this was a very solid release. I think that this would be a great candidate to be bottled down the road.
