From Hearthstone Brewery in North Vancouver comes their “Subaquatic Domicile IPA”. The latest IPA from Hearthstone pours an orange colour with a white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of pineapple, tropical fruit, sweetness and maybe a hint of malts. The flavour is of and maybe a hint of earth. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an unspecified IBU. This beer is a nice blend of North East IPA and North West IPA. It still has the bitterness of the west coast but still has the juicy side of the hops. I recommend finding some of this for yourself.
Commercial Description: This Pineapple infused New England Style IPA is hazy, thick, creamy and magical. Tropical fruit notes from Equanot, Idaho 7 & El Dorado hops are amplified by a healthy dose of Pineapple. Join the haze craze and get it in ya!
From Hearthstone Brewery in North Vancouver comes their “Atlantic Pale Ale”. The beer pours a golden colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of caramel and biscuit malts, pine and citrus notes. The flavour is of caramel, biscuit, fruity notes, mild resin and citrus, tropical fruit and mild bitterness. The alcohol comes in at 4.3% with an IBU of 30. This one won’t knock you socks off but it is a well made and enjoyable Pale Ale.
Commercial Description: East meets West in this little beauty! This is our take on an English style pale ale – light in colour and body, hopped with a mix of Old World and North American hops, resulting in a balanced and refined pale ale.
I spend a lot of time in breweries and especially in breweries that are under construction. My interest comes from the fact that I work in the structural engineering field. Even with the craft beer blog and working in engineering this is only the second time in 10 years that I have actually worked on a brewery project.
Beere Brewing Company is located on Esplanade in the Southern portion of North Vancouver. Beere Brewing will be found beneath the affiliated Beere Timber Company.
Along the front wall the footings are being beefed up so that the front wall of the masonry building can be upgraded to have new large overhead doors as can be seen in the first photo. The second photo is located on the left side of the building from the street and will be the location of the tasting room at the front. At the back of that photo there will be a bank of fermentors. Photo three is on the right side of the building and will house the brew house at the back and storage at the front. Photo three is of the slab cut out for the new enterance for Beer Timber Company. Photo 5 is on the right hand side of the building and shows a mix of original and new framing (renovations of buildings can be interesting). Photo 6 is from the right side of the building standing right where the brew house will be located looking to the fermentor tank farm. The framing on the left side will be the cooler.
I really look forward to watching this old space transform into a brewery! It doesn’t get much better than when your full time job blurs into your craft beer blog. If you need a Structural Engineer for your brewery project take a good look at Weiler Smith Bowers.
From Hearthstone Brewery in North Vancouver comes their “Tiny Little Tart Golden Sour”. The beer pours a golden colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of mild tartness, tropical fruits and lychee. The flavour is of tartness, tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus, passion fruit, sweetness and a mild malt backbone. The alcohol content comes in at 4% with an IBU of 0. This is definitely a tasty session sour ale. hope you can find some before its all gone.
Commercial Description: Kettle soured, then fermented with our hose ale yeast. Next we dry hop the hell out of this beer with Equanot and Idaho 7 hops, both accentuating the beautiful bouquet of passion fruit and citrus.
From Hearthstone Brewery in North Vancouver comes their “Cali Common”. A California Common is made with a lager yeast at Ale temperatures. The beer pours a straw yellow colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of citrus, grain, sweetness and floral hops. The flavour is of grain, caramel almost bready malts, citrus, herbal and mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.3% with an IBU of 33. The California Common style is definitely a more flavourful lager and this one delivers on that promise.
Commercial Description: We call this our “gateway beer”. It is a quality craft beer that is both complex, yet accessible – brewed for the common man. This style was born on the West Coast, using lager yeast, yet fermented at ale temperatures. On the nose – subtle toasty, malt aroma, on the tongue – caramel notes, with a dry, crisp body and slight bitter finish
