Burrard Staff Pick

Steel & Oak Towers & Trains 500mL $5.00

This Earl Grey IPA challenges the dominant perception of IPAs. Rather than packing the palette performance of popular IPAs, this Towers & Trains traces the trajectory of a dessert; and accompaniment to a meal that can be enjoyed before, after, or instead of a main course. Steel & Oak’s execution of this Earl Grey IPA offers a hint of bergamot in a very balanced IPA that goes down smooth and will leave you wanting more.

Crosstown Staff Pick

Monte Creek Foch 750ml $25.40

“I have been loving this wine ever since I tried it. A different grape than most are used to seeing, it lives up to the expectation of its uniqueness. Pours a beautiful inky purple hue, with aromas of raspberries and plum and tastes earthy and herbaceous.   Good structure, almost a full-bodied wine so it is great with food. Monte Creek you have righted the wrongs of the past with this grape varietal.”

West End Staff Pick

Hearthstone’s Cali Common 473ml can $4.10

This Common drinks like an introductory IPA, with just a touch of hops in a super easy to drink lager style beer. “The one day the sun came out, this was the beer that I had”. Light and refreshing, this will be the go to for the summer.
