Today’s Beer: this isn’t the first time I’ve tried this year’s rendition of Cannery Brewing’s Wildfire IPA but the chill in the air tonight reminded me that summer is almost gone and this beer will be unavailable soon. I really enjoy dark beers, and the hops really pair nicely with the roasted malt. Aroma is reminiscent of European hops, flavour starts out smooth and roasted, finishing with a lingering bitter bite. Even better is knowing you’re supporting the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Fund with each bottle. Another good job by the local boys!!
This cherry sour from Parellel 49 is intense. Aromatic, this has big cherry flavour that starts sweet then finishes tart. It’s rather viscous and opaque, with lots of head on the pour that settled quickly. I probably wouldn’t want more than one of these in a row, but I’m going to cellar a bottle as I think this has some potential to get even more interesting as it ages.
