The Phillips Phoenix Rises Again

We are thrilled to announce Phoenix Gold lager is making its debut in new 355mL cans! 6 packs are available at your preferred private retailer, while 12 can packs can be found at BC Government Liquor Stores. The recipe remains the same, but the original Phoenix design has been reborn referencing the neon sign that proudly perches atop our tasting room. This new neon sign looks out towards the former site of Victoria Phoenix Brewing that inspired this beer’s name originally.

We have a long, long history with Phoenix Gold Lager. Originally released in the iconic “stubbie” bottle back in 2004, Phoenix is the first lager we ever released. At the time we were still brewing in our first location at 798 Fairview in the wild frontier of Esquimalt. One morning as the doors were opened we were greeted with a river of beer cascading down the stairs, because the previous night a tank of beautiful Phoenix Gold Lager burst and was flooding everything including the machine shop below us. The landlord at the time “encouraged” us to find a new home for our nascent brewery, pushing us to take our next steps in what would become a wildly exciting 15 year journey since that day.

Phoenix Gold Lager pours a rich, golden colour with a creamy white head. Crisp lager esters and medium bodied, this beer finishes clean and dry with a subtle bready malt character. The classics never die.
