From the Village of Valemount’s Three Ranges Brewing comes their “Sacrifice Red Ale”. The beer pours a brownish colour with a light brown head with sediment. The aroma consists of caramel malts, biscuit, earth, mild fruit and a sweet finish. The flavour is of earth, melon, citrus, caramel, biscuit, resin and hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 35. This is a refreshing beer and its to bad that it is so hard to get more of it unless you take a drive up to Valemount.
Commercial Description: This red ale is dedicated to service members past, present , future and especially to those who gave all. The colour red is for those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. The malt sweetness signifies making it through the toughest of battles, balanced by the bitterness of the price paid to get there. Finally, a citrus aroma to go with the lemon of a deal being handed out by our governments! Contact your local MP today and let them know that you support your troops! As a US Army vet this issue is close to owner/brewmaster Michael’s heart. Both Canada and US governments cut veterans’ benefits and services in early 2014. We decided to act. A portion of all sales of Sacrifice Red goes toward selected soldiers, veteran’s and family member charities. On Red Friday’s at our taproom, we match all the money in the tip jar and add it to our monthly donation.
