When Ma and Pa Sip were in Terrace, BC a few months back, they made sure to pick up a couple Sherwood Mountain Brewing bombers for their number one son.
Among those, was the company’s Skeena West Pale Ale, which was a very good drink. The 5.5% ABV brew features flavours of caramel and biscuit with a nice hop balance.
The beer is named after the Skeena River, which is the second longest river to exist entirely in the province and is home to a number of wildlife species, including various salmon and bears. Particularly notable is that the rare Kermode Bear (aka Spirit Bear) inhabits the Skeena Valley, which surrounds the body of water.
Sherwood Mountain’s brewmaster learned this recipe from Lake of Bays Brewing in Baysville, Ontario. The beer was a solid beverage, so it’s no surprise the brewery expects it to become a flagship offering, as time goes by.
