Bridge Lemon GinAlways looking to improve on the offerings here, I have enlisted someĀ of the most respected palates in the Craft Beer world to provide a Beer of the Week Each Week.

This week features Jami Wood of Spinnaker’s Spirit Merchants in James Bay.

For Jami this beer was so good that it inspired her to bake a cake with the beer being a key ingredient.

Pick of the Week: Bridge Brewing Lemon Gin Saison

Format: 650ml

Price: $7-$8/650ml

Availability: Private Stores only; very limited stock available – get it now!

Tasting Notes/Technical Info: Brewed with the addition of juniper berries, lemon peel, coriander, and pink peppercorns, and fermented with a French Saison Yeast, this beer is unique and super drinkable. Juniper, used in moderation, emphasizes the gin flavours, while coriander adds depth and complexity. The saison yeast used expresses peppery, spicy and citrusy notes, which play well with the lemon zest and pink peppercorn.

ABV 5.5% IBU 24

Cheers
