The Sip Advisor has long been a fan of Old Yale Brewing, but only recently finally visited their Chilliwack-based tasting room. There, Mrs. Sip and I shared a paddle of their beers, which was highlighted by this delicious option.
The Moon Dance Mango Wheat is bursting with mango flavour, as each batch of the brew is apparently constructed using 900 pieces of the stone fruit. The brewery describes the 5% ABV, 10 IBUs beverage simply as “smooth tropical freshness,” once again proving that only good things happen with a wheat base.
Previously known as the Outta Wack Mango Wheat, the beer is available in bomber-sized bottles, as well as six-packs. While the Outta Wack (get it, cause it’s out of Chilliwack) version was a seasonal release, the Moon Dance has earned a spot in Old Yale’s regular lineup and can be found year-round.
Suggested food pairings include shellfish, spicy seafood gumbo, jerk chicken, roasted duck breast, and goat cheese. Mrs. Sip was particularly fond of the Mango Wheat and upon learning it pairs best with seafood, that appreciation may grow.
