Brew Year’s Day

Brewer’s Backyard put on another great event at the Evergreen Brick Works this past Sunday.

Dark winter beers are some of my favourites so I knew I wouldn’t be missing Brew Year’s Day. The focus was on rare and potent beers, and potent they were. 

My top two picks were the Amsterdam Full City Tempest Imperial Stout (loved the added coffee flavour) and the Great Lakes Apocalypse Later Double Black IPA. 

Some of the more daring people even strapped on ice skates for a quick spin around the rink. I decided it was probably for the best to stay on solid ground after all my delicious samples.
