Twas the first beer of wintertime…

So, last weekend, we got hit with a buncha snow, which was pretty much perfect meat-pie weather, bro! But after scarfing down a mondo delicious beef ‘n beer pie from my homeboys at The Pie Commission, I just wanted to kick back with a nice, cold Teddy Brewski. And I know just the beer to do the trick:

Say hello to my little friend Lions Winter Ale, from Granville Island Brewing. Pretty much everything I like about Vancouver is right here, in this bottle. Now, I’m not sure how they do it, but they’ve made a dark-red beer that takes like a nice warm glass of cocoa…if you don’t keep it in the fridge, that is!

But seriously, this beer is legit, bro! You’ve got a nice kick of cocoa, caramel and vanilla, barely any bitterness, and at 5.5%, it sure as shit ain’t Coors Light, Glen! This is pretty much the perfect beer to kick back and chillax in front of the TV, while watching the Calgary Flames skate circles around Winterpeg:

Turns out Calgary’s got the hottest team in the NHL right now. Bet they could use some Lions Winter Ale!!!
