The Howling Beaver

Rye Golden Ale 5.5%
Icon/Fridge Created with Sketch. NO LONGER AVAILABLE

To celebrate this unique Canadian style, we paired one of Canada’s national animals with Canada’s favourite sport. (Did you know Canada’s other national animal is a Horse? But we just couldn’t do another horse beer this year). Howling like a wolf, this beaver is psyching himself up for a win against the Yodelling Polar Bears in order to meet the Wailing Moose in the finals next week. This golden ale has a piney and citric hop character, followed by a dry spicy bitter finish reminiscent of a white rye bread. It’s smooth with rich malt notes and refreshingly crushable.
