This June, Yaletown Brewing alum and Strange Fellows co-owner Iain Hill invites you on a journey through sour ales. Starting at 7 pm, on June 5th, Iain Hill will wake your taste buds and elevate your education on what beer means to be sour. Included in the seminar will not only be a history and process of making sours but also an opportunity to sip on beers throughout the hour and half-long event.
Included in your pre-paid $55 (plus tax) ticket is:
One hour seminar with brewmaster and co-owner Iain Hill
Bottle of Little Red One, our black currant sour
4 x 5oz tasters of our signature sours
A welcome glass of beer and complimentary snacks
All that's asked about you is that you show up (with your pre-paid ticket) around thirty-minutes before the start time, to enjoy your welcome beer.
More about Little Red One, your takeaway beer.
Previously brewed and bottled exclusively for Fellowship members, Little Red One is so good we felt inclined to share with everyone this year! It will be available to the public on June 10th as a seasonal release but will be pre-released during VCBW to attendees of the Sour Session.
Barrel-aged for over a year with black currants from the Fraser Valley, this West Coast Lambic-style Sour ale has notes of oak, black tea, and tobacco with a dry herbal berry character that brings to mind walking on herbal ground cover on a hot sunny day. Perfect for long term cellaring, this complex beer will soften and mellow with laying down for an extended period. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature.
More on Strange Fellows Brewing
We are an East Vancouver craft brewery inspired by tradition and creativity, and go beyond the ordinary to celebrate that which is strange* and extraordinary.
The beer we make is influenced both by old world traditions and West coast ingenuity as well as by seasonal ingredients. Our barrel programme promises unique aged beers, and we have a bit of a thing for sour beer.
Open daily for growler fills and gathering with friends, our Tasting Room offers an ever-changing selection of beer as well as tasty locally sourced grub to go with.
You can find our beer on tap at many fine drinking establishments and restaurants, and our packaged product in private liquor stores around town.
Tucked in alongside the Tasting Room, you will find the Charles Clark Gallery where artists share their unique visions with us on a monthly, rotating basis.
We invite you to celebrate with us each month as we observe a different Strange Day, inspired by obscure superstitions and folklore from around the world.
