    Episode 16: A Pint With Steamworks

    Episode 16: A Pint With Steamworks

    This was a big week in the Smith house; I landed a new job, and I received an invite from Steamworks Brewing to try a new beer they are launching, the Tropical Tart Ale. I sat down with Steamworks Marketing Manager Justin Van Mulligen to chat about the steps involved in bringing a new beer to the market. How the twenty-one-year-old Vancouver brewery still views itself as a startup by creating unique beers and staying ahead of the trends. And how much of a roll Gastown has played a part in their branding and beers.



    Head over to the Steamworks taproom in Burnaby to fill your growler with the Tropical Tart Ale.

    In this episode Wrey, Shannon & Josh in the background flow in and out of beer and board games, specifically Star Wars X-Wing from Fantasy Flight Games and the 3 Hobbit-themed beers from Central City Brewing.



    The Smaug Stout: Smaug Stout (9.5% alc./vol) is styled after a classic Russian Imperial Stout, but with a subtle hint of Habanero chilies to remind you of the fire and danger awaiting Bilbo and to the Company of Dwarves in their journey to The Lonely Mountain. Pronounced notes of coffee and chocolate balanced with Northwest Hops and a touch of heat produce an exceptional imperial stout, a worthy reward for your hard-fought journey. 

    The Gollum Precious Pils: With flavors as smooth and crafty as Gollum himself, the Gollum Pilsner (5% alc./vol) is brewed in the classic Bavarian tradition, using only the finest two-row barley, and hops from the Hallertau region of Germany. This light and golden Pilsner has a distinct hop aroma and flavour, with a dry, crisp finish.Like the One Ring which Gollum has spent his life pursuing, the “precious” pils, if your quest leads you to it, may not extend your life, but it may make your journey a little more enjoyable!

    The Bolg Belgian Tripel: An Orc chieftain who ruled for 150 years, Bolg seems like the kind who would drink his grog of choice and no one would tell him otherwise; however, this flavorful strong BelgianTripel(8% alc./vol) may be too refined for this otherwise gruesome character.
