BC Beer Baron #172 – Fuggles & Warlock The Last Strawberry Wit

Each month, as part of this 366-day BC craft beer extravaganza that I will be sharing with you throughout 2016, I will highlight a specific style or theme of beers for a whole week of articles. Fruit beers may have some traditionalists up in arms, but if they only them a chance, they would see how good the beverages can be. In putting together this feature week, I tried to incorporate as many different fruits as possible, so let’s see what BC has to offer in this realm.

I first enjoyed this Fuggles & Warlock creation while staying in the Okanagan Valley on a wine weekend. Thankfully, I packed along a host of good beers to help stave off palate fatigue, including this little number.

The Last Strawberry Wit is brewed with fresh strawberries, giving the beer a sweet taste, with a tart finish. The 4.9% ABV beverage is nice and light and comes in at only 8 IBUs. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an IBU count that low.

The label design for this beer conjures images of Final Fantasy or The Legend of Zelda, which is par for the course for Fuggles & Warlock (the brewery that is “Keeping Beer Weird”). The beer is available in canned six-packs, as well as bomber-sized bottles at various liquor stores.

Fuggles and Warlock finally opened their Richmond tasting room in April and I’ve been thirsting to drop by for a visit. Cousin Sip was there on opening weekend and grabbed me a bomber of their 8-Bit IPA, which I will have to review in the future.
