Cask Night - Yaletown and Dix - Thurs April 29
Greetings beer lovers!
This coming Thursday will see three unique casks tapped at Yaletown Brewery and Dix Brewpub. If you're interested in joining me for a pint, let me know. I'll probably start at Yaletown around 4pm and head over to Dix after a pint.
These casks will go FAST, probably before 8-9pm!
This week is the 8th installment of brewmaster Iain Hill's Brett cask series. No word yet on the specifics of the cask. Brettanomyces are a strain of yeast commonly used in some types of Belgian beer.
There will be two award winning casks at DIX this Thursday. Brewmaster Dave Woodward from Whistler Brewhouse will have a cask of his Woodward's IPA, which he has dry-hopped with amarillo twice. Dave has also increased the IBUs of this IPA to 70. Note that Dave won the patrons choice award for his Woodwards IPA at this year's Spinnakers spring cask festival. DIX brewmaster Derrick Franche will also have a cask of his blood orange zest Belgian Grand Cru, which won the brewer's choice award at the same cask festival.
