Kettle Sour with Pineapple, Orange, Coconut & Vanilla, 5.0% ABV
If you like pina coladas and gettin’ caught in creamsicle rain, it won’t take half a brain to know this Transcontinental Pop’ll leave you spellbound. Brewed in cahoots with Toronto’s own Blood Brothers Brewing, this pop creeps the line between beer and “I can’t believe this is beer”, so you’re going to want to fill your Thirsty Boots.
Appropriately dubbed after the first billed moniker of the 1970 train tour: Festival Express, this thirst quencher—like its namesake—will take the stage in both Toronto and Calgary. Hopefully someone from Winnipeg will catch a sip from somewhere to keep this unconventional naming convention choice truly copacetic. Either that, or they’ll Cry, Baby.
Being a fruited kettle sour, it’s bewitchingly fruity and slightly tart. Where it really cracks the cauldron is with the creamy quality of the vanilla and coconut combined. It’s groovy as all get-out and something even the coolest cats will have to skitty to get their paws on. We hope you enjoy the show.
