We are featuring a very special beer for our cask ale this week at Boundary Bay Brewery!
Every Thursday we feature a different Cask Ale during our Happy Hour. Cask ale is created by adding unfermented beer (wurt) to fermented beer. This naturally carbonates the ale. This method of brewing requires brewers to naturally condition the beer in a firkin or other vessels without artificially introducing CO2. Poured by gravity the result is smooth ale with a thick dense head that brings out full flavor.
This week, we will have our Legendary Herbert Ale. The Herbert’s is a special beer that’s normally brewed collaboratively by a group of Washington brewers for the Cask Festival in honor of Bert Grant, a Northwest beer icon. Boundary Bay Brewery is one of the lucky breweries creating one of the ten special brews this year. Our Herbert Legendary Ale is a strong (7.7% ABV), hoppy American Amber featuring Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo and Cascade hops with 2-Row, Crystal and Chocolate malts. Come be one of the first to try Boundary Bay Brewery’s Legendary Herbert Ale…even before the Cask Festival!
