As I’ve written previously, I’m a big fan of companies releasing mixed six- or eight-packs, with two each of three or four different beers. With that in mind, I recently picked up Cannery Brewing’s set, including this product.
The Anarchist Amber Ale is very refreshing and perfect for beating the summer heat, as I did, using the brew at my beer league baseball this previous weekend. The 5.5% ABV, 27 IBUs beverage is just right in each category, with Cannery calling it “a beer lover’s beer.”
Also included in the Cannery Variety Pack is the Naramata Nut Brown Ale (among the Sip Advisor’s favourites) and the Trellis IPA. Two recipes the brewery offers for the Amber Ale, include a Curried Stew and Lobster Tails Steamed in Beer.
My previous trips to Cannery’s tasting room in Penticton have always been enjoyable, thanks to their awesome patio space and collection of games for patrons to try, while enjoying a flight of beers. I hope to be back soon.

One of the things I like best about Langley’s annual Tip N’ Taste event is the lineup of companies they pull together, representing many outposts of the province. For example, joining the fray from Penticton was Cannery Brewing.
Among the products they brought with them, was the Trellis IPA. While I enjoyed the beverage, this IPA is very light on alcohol content at 5% ABV. That said, the hop level is just right at 65 IBUs, so there’s a flavour punch. As the brewery writes: “This drinkable IPA uses several varieties of hops to keep you wanting more but also keep you standing.”
The Trellis IPA replaces Cannery’s previous IPA (now retired), as part of the brewery’s Core Brands lineup. The company also has the limited release Wildfire IPA, among their arsenal. The Trellis IPA is currently available in bomber-sized bottles, with 355ml cans soon to come.
Some recipes the folks at Cannery suggest making, using the Trellis IPA, include beef stew and Thai chicken BBQ. Now the Sip Advisor just needs to find someone to cook some of these delicious sounding items up for me!
