Sirens Chai Saison – Britannia Brewing Company


From Britannia Brewing Company in the Richmond with a tasting room in Steveston Village comes their “Sirens Chai Saison”. The beer poured a copper orange with a white head. The aroma consists of chai tea, orange, anise, spices and yeast. The flavour is of chai tea, mild funk, anise, spices, orange with a saison yeast finish. The alcohol content comes in at 5.7% with an IBU of 22. I am not a huge tea fan but this one was quite ewnjoyable. 

Commercial Description:  The Sirens call to lure you into this refreshing and effervescent farmhouse ale.  Kettling a local chai tea blend of rooibos, orange, star anise, clove and pepper all adding up to give off a unique spice aroma that compliments our Belgian yeast.

Riptide Rye IPA – Britannia Brewing Company


From Britannia Brewing Company in the Richmond with a tasting room in Steveston Village comes their “Riptide Rye IPA”.  The beer pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, tropical fruit, orange and rye spice.  The flavour is of mild resin, herbal hops, tropical fruit, good citrus hit with some melon and mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 58.  While I would not go as far as to call this a North East IPA it is a good Rye IPA.

Commercial Description:  Brewed in the North East style with British yeast, Amarillo hops and flaked rye.  Apricots and nectarine meet citrus/mandarin orange with undertones of melon, creating juicy flavours with soft spicy tones of Rye.  Follow the tide and enjoy the flavour and aromas of this fresh IPA.

Ashore Rye Porter – Britannia Brewing Company


From Britannia Brewing Company in the Richmond with a tasting room in Steveston Village comes their “Ashore Rye Porter”.  The beer pours a deep brown colour with a light brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and rye.  The flavour is of roasted malts, chocolate, mild coffee, nuts, earth, mild ash, caramel, rye and some mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.1% with an IBU of 32.  I really enjoyed this Porter and I look forward to picking it up again.

Commercial Description:  A twist on the traditional brown style porter, a portion of malted Rye is added which gives a spicy finish, chocolate flavors with hints of nuts and lightly roasted coffee make this a sessionable dark ale.  We use only the finest British and local ingredients.
