BC Beer Baron #338 – Bowen Island Reef Break Hemp Blonde Ale

Always prepared for thirsty guests who may drop by the Sip Advisor headquarters, I recently picked up Bowen Island Brewing’s Adventure Pack. Within that variety case was this product, which may be the pick of the bunch.

The Reef Break Hemp Blonde Ale was a little sweet for my taste, but I still enjoyed the drink for its flavourful and refreshing qualities. The 5% ABV, 14 IBUs beverage contains “a gentle infusion of hemp,” which provides a bitter finish, similar to hops.


The brew also comes with the tagline: “If it was anymore BC, it would be illegal!” This refers to the province’s budding marijuana industry (see what I did there), which BC has gained quite a reputation for.

Also included in the Adventure Pack are the Deep 6 Lager, Artisan IPA and Freestone Summer Ale. The recently released Winterlude version of the case contains the lager and IPA, joined by the Snug Cove ESB and Twisted Trail Extra Pale Ale.
