Two new beers have been released out of the Powell River brewery Townsite Brewing Inc. The Westview wheat is a witbier offering to satisfy your summer urges while the Said The Ale is a part of the Grant Lawrence, CBC Radio 3 as part of the CBC Band Beer series. Both beers are hitting the shelves of your local craft retailer in the coming days so keep an eye out and watch for a full review coming soon!
Everyone’s favourite summer beer is back, and this time we’ll be brewing it all summer long!
When pairing this beer with foods it is easy to play on its citrousy character. Salad with vinaigrette, Grilled fish with lemon and parsley or a Charcuterie platter of: cheeses, meats, olives and pickled onions.
Westview will be available from the May long weekend through to September long weekend

SAID THE ALE
Puns are widely regarded among dads and twitter users as one of the highest forms of humour, so it was no surprise when CBC Radio 3 host Grant Lawrence took to twitter with his #CDNbandbeer hashtag and it trended its way right into the National Post. Graphic designer Ben Didier took the joke too far by designing a set of labels for some of the fictitious brews, published them on the CBC Music website, and before long, our friend Jeremy Sibley of Old Yale Brewing recruited us, R&B Brewing and Cannery Brewing to help make them a reality.
