For the second consecutive year, Parallel 49 Brewing has joined forces with 12 different BC craft breweries to release a package of unique beers, dubbed Brews Brothers Volume 2. The Sip Advisor figured spending the first chunk of June reviewing these releases would be a great idea. So, let’s get on with things.
Today, we look at Barkerville Brewing’s collaborative efforts with P49. To date, the Quesnel-based operation hasn’t received nearly the amount of coverage it deserves on this site, but that will surely change in the months to come.
The Run to the Hills Golden Strong Ale was another hit for the Sip Advisor, mixing a robust base with a surprisingly fruity finish. The 8% ABV beverage is reminiscent of Belgian tripels and quads and these have become among my and Mrs. Sip’s favourites. My chivalry knows no bounds, letting my better half enjoy a taste of the beer, although I could have easily hogged it all to myself.
Each beer is named after a classic rock song, with Iron Maiden’s heavy metal anthem Run to the Hills playing that role, here. I recently saw this song top a list of the best songs to run to. That’s all fine and good, but it’s far better to laze around and drink to!
