Lighthouse Brewing in Victoria BC has released a special new beer to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada.
Called 150 Heritage ale, this malt-forward wee heavy is infused with subtle notes of maple, smoke, and rye.
You can find it right now on the shelves of select liquor stores in BC.
Check out the story behind it:
We Proudly join the rest of Canada in celebrating the country’s 150th birthday. At the same time, we’d like to shine a light on the heritage of this nation’s lighthouse keepers, who have quietly served mariners on both coasts. For example, Newfoundland’s Cape Spear Lighthouse was tirelessly manned for over 150 years by several generations of the same family, the Cantwells. A tip of the watch cap to them and all Canada’s Keepers. This beer honours them with a malt-forward flavour infused with maple (for Canada), smoke (for oil lamps), and rye malt (for colour).
