Townsite Brewing’s Bière D’Hiver Comes Out Of Hibernation

The Bière D’Hiver is Back from Townsite Brewing

Townsite Brewing Biere D'Hiver ReleasePowell River, BC – Oct 28th 2015

Canadian Brewing Awards winner, Bière D’Hiver is back.

Bière D’Hiver: in Powell River, the sugar plum fairy swings into the brewery on a zunga, bringing with her a delicious belgian dubbel, full of spicy, plummy flavours.

Belgian dubbel is a style Cédric knows well. ‘Ste Feuillien Brune is the local beer in my hometown’ He says ‘I grew up drinking this style of beer’

Subtly spiced with coriander, star anise and Belgian candi sugar, which Cédric makes himself. ‘I keep telling the brewers in BC: Make your own candi sugar! it’s very simple and adds a wonderful depth to the beer you can’t get with the store bought stuff.’

At 7.5% ABV and bottle conditioned, this one is perfect for your beer cellar, ideally aging for 5 years before consuming. The longer it sits the more prune and plum flavours will develop. Available in stores now.

FG: 2.8
ABV: 7.5%
IBU: 28
