Dageraad Collaborates with Upright on Rhythm Section

Dageraad Brewing in Burnaby BC has released a special collaboration with Portland’s Upright Brewing called Rhythm Section.

Rhythm Section is described as being a a subtly spiced saison—a beer you could drink because you’re thirsty, or one you could spend time with your nose stuck in the glass, pondering its intricate and delicate complexity.

Rhythm Section is an expression of both breweries’ mutual love of experimenting with spices and other unusual brewing ingredients. The elements of this balance, nuanced beer work as a unit, each contributing their part without dominating the conversation.

I got a chance to try this one out at this year’s Farmhouse Fest and thought that it was a wonder beer for enjoying in the warm, sunny weather.

Rythym Section is available now at the Dageraad tasting room and bottle swill begin popping up in select private liquor stores next week.

ABV: 5% / IBU: NA

Moon Under Water Releases 2017 Edition of Tempus Corvi

Moon Under Water in Victoria BC is preparing to release a 2017 batch of Tempus Corvi. Released once every 2 years, this barrel fermented sour saison was originally brewed in collaboration with local award winning homebrewer, Dave Janssen.

Taking inspiration from traditional saison brewers of Belgium and revivalist brewers of North America, Tempus Corvi is a mixed-fermentation saison. They let this saison rest for 5 months in French oak wine barrels where the activity of a diverse collection of Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces yeasts and lactic acid bacteria transformed the beer, adding sourness and additional complexity. With its bright acidity and light body, Tempus Corvi is a refreshing beer ready to drink now or be cellared for continued development along its own course.

Tempus Corvi will be released at the brewery on June 24 and will be available on tap and in limited cork and cage bottles while it lasts!

6.4% ABV | N/A IBU | 1.001 FG
