Twin Sails Releases Sack Lunch and Con Leche Batch #3

Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody BC is set to release a brand new beer called Sack Lunch this weekend, along with a third batch of Con Leche.

Sack Lunch

This pale ale was fermented with Saccharomyces Trois, then generously dry hopped with a trio of Australian hops: Galaxy, Vic Secret, and Enigma. The Sacch Trois is said to provide a unique fruit-forward profile with an underlying spice character, while the huge dry hop throws a ton of stone fruit on the nose, with papaya and peach on the palate. They say they allowed this one to dry out to ensure that it remained very drinkable.

Sack Lunch is available in the tasting room this weekend with no limits. In-store availability will be determined by weekend sales.

Con Leche

This stout pours dark black with a thick creamy mocha head. Oats and lactose provide a silky rich mouthfeel which is balanced by strong aromatics of coffee delivered by over 110 lbs of coffee beans. To finish, the beer is conditioned on cinnamon and vanilla beans, which provide a unique spicy character that pairs perfectly with the strong coffee and chocolate flavours of the stout.

They dropped the finishing gravity on this batch which resulted in a much more rounded malt profile, and a far more drinkable beer.

Con Leche is available in the tasting room this weekend with no limits. In-store availability will be determined by weekend sales.
