When Ma and Pa Sip had to travel to Terrace, BC recently for a Celebration of Life in the family, they took the opportunity to pick up some craft beer for the ol’ Sip Advisor, stopping in at Sherwood Mountain Brewing.
The Munich Lager is not your typical lager, coming in with an amber/dark brown colour and bolder flavour than I’m accustomed to. The 4.8% ABV beverage was just recently released in bottle format, joining Sherwood Mountain’s other offerings, including the Friar’s House Lager.
Ma and Pa Sip had the chance to speak with Sherwood Mountain’s brewmaster (or braumeister and beer bard, as he prefers to be called), Darryl Tucker, who spent six months living in Germany, learning the country’s brewing techniques.
Borrowing from the legends of Robin Hood and the character’s home of Sherwood Forest, the company’s bottles feature a friar mascot named Tuck, who is a man of the people and lover of beer. “From lagers to stouts to saisons to IPAs, the Friar has made friends with them all,” the brewery’s website boasts… and I’d love to try them all, eventually!
