Makani Pineapple IPA
Named for the warm Hawaiian tropical winds, the Makani Pineapple IPA is an odd pairing that seems to work. With an ABV of 6.2 percent, the bitterness often found in IPAs is masked by the juicy acidity of pineapple juice. The after taste has a tendency to coast in the back of your mouth after each sip. The pineapple is by no means overwhelming, but after a few tastes, it lingers. This is a beer built for winter that tastes like summer.
Imperial Coffee Porter
This beer is probably my favourite in the pack. With an ABV of seven percent, it’s the perfect winter treat, boasting a subtle yet delicious aroma and taste of Balzac coffee. This porter is not as heavy as most and the undertones of caramel and chocolate love to gently rest on the taste buds. It’s a porter for drinkers unaccustomed to porters while being robust and warming for Canada’s arctic.
This organic amber lager has become a favourite for Mill St. Brewery drinkers. Brewed with pale and amber malts and bravo and cascade hops, this beer comes with a sophisticated taste for the average beer drinker. There are hints of floral grapefruit and a bite on the after taste due to the balanced hops. It’s a great beer for drinkers looking for something more than a standard run-of-the-mill lager.
