Earlier this week, the Sip Family gathered for a meal at Dunn’s Famous BC, where among their menu of smoked meat sandwiches and poutine, are a few products courtesy of Howe Sound Brewing.
The Sky Pilot Northwest Pale Ale (known as Dunn’s Pale Ale at the restaurant) was a solid beer pitcher choice, perfect for our impending feast. At 5% ABV and 30 IBU’s, it’s an easy drinking ale that can be shared amongst eclectic tastes.
The beer is named in honour of Sky Pilot Mountain, which is said to bring visitors and nature together in the Sea-to-Sky region of B.C. It is also brewed in collaboration with the Sea-to-Sky Gondola, which operates in Howe Sound’s home of Squamish and takes guests on a 10-minute journey from base to peak. Once at the top, there are a number of activities to partake in, including walking trails, snowshoeing , a tube park, skiing and snowboarding, and biking in the summer months.
The beer’s bottle features a car from said gondola, as well as a tribute to the attraction’s opening day of May 16, 2014.
