VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the release of its first new seasonal beer of 2021.

Winter Staycation Tropical Stout (5.2% abv) is described as follows:

Featuring noticeable sweetness, prominent fruity flavours and dry, coffee-like notes from the roasted barley, tropical stouts are also renowned for their flexibility in complementing a wide range of dishes from sweet to spicy in any kind of weather or climate. To give our version a unique twist, we are fermenting this brew using a special strain of Kveik ale yeast, originating in Lӕrdal, Norway. Like most Kveik yeasts, this single-strain isolate ferments fast and at higher temperatures and can add subtle pineapple and orchard fruit flavours and aromas to beer. We also added a small amount of Sabro and Azacca dry hops to accentuate notes of coconut and tropical fruit.

Winter Staycation is available now at the Phillips retail store and select private liquor stores in BC and Alberta.
