Despite being only three weeks old, when the Sip Alliance visited Field House Brewing on our recent beer journey through the Fraser Valley, the place was packed and it wouldn’t take long for our crew to figure out why.
Typically, the Sip Advisor isn’t the biggest fan of sour beers, but the Sour Wheat Gose was my favourite among our four-sample taster flight. As is the case with most sours, this brew was light at only 3.8% ABV, but you don’t always need to have your socks knocked off. Perhaps I’ve opened a new door for myself, in regards to beer enjoyment.
The brewery prides themselves on “community, family and old school values,” which sounds like the definition of a true craft brewery. The company’s website states: “Let’s take care of each other and build something great that we can share together.” You can even join the brewery as an original founder, kind of like a crowdsourcing initiative.
Overall, I was impressed with Field House’s intimate cabin-style tasting room, complete with roaring fireplace. Their taster flight price was higher ($9 for four samples) than I’ve seen elsewhere, but the drinks were worth it. While most breweries might open with more traditional beer options, I thought the Field House line-up was very unique and experimental, also including a Dutch Pale Ale, Eastern IPA, and Salted Black Porter. This can only mean good things for their future!
