While my original selection from Hathi Brewing was tapped out at the recent Langley Tip N’ Taste event, I was more than happy to try the other offering they had available.
The Mango Bango Hefe was a decent wheat beer, with a hint of mango flavour. At 6.1% ABV, it’s stronger than your typical hefeweizen and the cloudy nature of the beer’s appearance and flavour profile will make it a fun summer beverage.
Mrs. Sip had a good chat with the rep from Hathi, who said the brewery was founded by a pair of guys with Indian heritage and their aim is to produce beers in line with that. Thus, they have a mango-flavoured hefeweizen (inspired by the popular mango lassi drinks) and the Coriander Pale Ale (capitalizing on eastern spices) I had hoped to sample.
Located in Abbotsford, Hathi has been releasing beers commercially for the last three months. They can currently be found on tap at the Old Abbey Ales brewery and tasting room. The company hopes to eventually open a brew pub and has worked hard to develop their brand and brews, in the meantime.
