Beer of The Week May 7-13: Bridge Brewing Lemon Gin Saison

May 7, 2016 § 1 Comment

Bridge Lemon GinAlways looking to improve on the offerings here, I have enlisted some 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

Picks of the Pros Sparkling Wines: Jami Wood

December 31, 2015 § 1 Comment

The last in the Picks of the Pros Sparkling Wine series comes from Jami Wood. Jami runs the James Bay Spinnaker’s Store and has her finger on the pulse of the industry. She always has some magic in her store and these are items that she would pick for herself for New Year’s 2016.
Joie Plien de VieJoie Plien de Vie Brut $24.34 +tax

A Rosé bubble from BC. What could be more fitting for issuing in 2016. Made in the classic method using Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this bubble is all about fresh strawberries, citrus and living life like there is no tomorrow.
Adami Credazzo ProseccoAdami Credazzo Prosecco $36.39 +tax

The top of the line when it comes to Prosecco.

Fresh melon and peach are displayed with vibrant abandon and finish refreshing and clean. Ideal for prawns, lobster or fresh salads.
Deus Brut de FlandersDeus Brut des Flandres $32.47 +tax and includes 2 Champagne Glasses

Guess what this is a beer! Yup a very unique and wonderful beer. It is first crafted in Flanders Belgium then shipped to the winery that makes Dom Perignon to be finished.

The bubbles are very much like champagne; tiny, vibrant and almost creamy. The flavour shows citrus, brioche and some hops. A great description is Duvel meets Dom Perignon.
