Winter is coming, so hold the door for Fire and Blood as they come together in this thick, black, chocolatey and gently spicy beer. With layer upon layer of chocolate malt, caramel malt, and roasted barley; pull me into the dark with a heart of cacao nibs and put fire in the sky with both ancho and habanero chillies, then in the darkness bind them with the creaminess of oats and lactose.
The Mystic Knot is creation from contradiction. It brings together the biscuity malt flavour of Marris Otter malt with the thick and creamy body of oats and lactose; with no beginning and no end, the knot conjures complexity whilst weaving coffee with subtle hints of vanilla and caramel. It screams You Shall Not Pass to the shadows and fire and you will find no trace of darkness or hop bitterness here.
When one of our young amber ales met up with a cask from Maker’s Mark and our Victoria Caledonian whisky spirit, sparks of love filled the air, and spurred twa of our dogs to howl at the moon in delight! The Parting Kiss is medium bodied with a velvet texture; the subtle caramel, toasted oak, whisky, malt & vanilla dance in the glass with just a touch of Goldings hops in a perfect union of suds.
Aimed at being a lighter style ‘Innis & Gunn’, so that you can have more than 1 or 2 without the beer being too heavy.
Holy Willie Robust Porter is a truly stout ale. Featuring BC & British specialty barley and malted & flaked oats, its bitterness is masked behind roasted chocolate flavours. Bold yet creamy, acrid yet malty. Robust indeed
The Melodie sings the song of summer; the crisp, clear refreshment of Twa Dogs Kolsch, running allegro like till a crescendo of raspberry bursts from the glass. We’re the garden city, and roses are summer love. The Kolsch is light coloured and the raspberry infusion produces a colour which reminds of ruby-red rose water.
The elegant simplicity of the Cloud Chamber’s design accentuates its passionfruit and guava aromatics. Combining a Single Malt type and a Single Hop variety, the Cloud Chamber is a classic SMaSH Double IPA. We’ve loaded as much Azacca hops as possible into this beer at every stage. The only place we held back from adding more hops was in the kettle. This allows the beer to avoid harsh hop bitter notes while still embodying an unmistakable hop flavour. IPA lovers will revel in rejoice when they get their hands on this beer. Our Kiwi brewmaster Dean thinks its so great that he can’t stop talking about it.
This saison is spicy and fruity with a dry finish. BC and German grown malts are fermented with a unique blend of yeasts, then late-hopped with New Zealand Motueka to reduce its bitterness. The stone fruit and citrus notes of the hops weave together with bubbly carbonation for a brew full of energy.
Broad are the seas and weary are the feet, for long have we travelled, from the seven seas and beyond in the long times since, to here, this place our home. Seas Between Us IPA is a smouldering red ale, rich with crystal malt and a bracing schwack of North-West hops. Brewed to refresh your “weary fitt” and revitalise the soul. This beer is so called because it brings together ingredients from near and far around the world to create a beautiful balance of old world malt and new world hops.
Because it uses hops more familiar to the west coast palette, it will be immediately recognised as a traditional style of IPA to the local beer drinkers. Will be a touch richer though, because of the fuller malt flavours. Centennial hops from Oregon, Magnum bittering hops from Germany, Base malt is Gambrinus, mix of US & Belgian speciality malt to round off.
The ‘mirror’ pilsner is unfiltered for the fullest body and flavour, so don’t expect this bold and candid pilsner to reflect the summer sun’s rays. Instead, The Keekin’ Glass is deep, beaming with character and refreshing liveliness. Using the finest Pacifica and Motueka hops, with the best malts and keenest brewers eye, this pilsner doesn’t conform. No bones, no gimmicks, no compromises.
The Silver Flood rises and gushes in top fermented glory; authentically made with raw wheat and traditionally spiced with coriander & orange peel, this classic, cloudy Belgian wit-bier is brought to life with kiwi hops to accentuate the stone fruit, apricot & peach flavours that rage on unabated in the glass. The silver flood is made to be extremely refreshing, like a river of thirst quench pouring into your mouth.
This Jolly fella is surely a west coast BC pale ale, but pairs crystal malt with German Hallertau Blanc hops. It ain’t hard to love the malty, world travelling, lemon grass and tropical flavours in this jovial brew. Come dance with us, come sing along, splash beer upon the table. The Jolly Beggar wants you to revel in the raptures.
Brewed with only Canadian grown malt barley, Thirsty Neibor encourages you to be part of the community. We use a magic blend of 4 hop varieties crafting a boisterous tale of citrus, tropical & stone fruit flavours. Do the right thing and be a good neighbour.
The story of the Twa Dogs tells us that some friends, some banter, and a wee bit o’ beer can make a body remarkably happy. So we thought what better way to celebrate a day ending in ‘y’ than with a 12 bottle mixer pack of 4 different beers, perfect to share or howl to the moon about!
