Spinnakers Brewpub Gives Nod to Local Firefighters

Monday Magazine's craft beer aficionado Mathieu Poirier reviews Spinnakers latest release

After what could have been a devastating fire in November, Spinnakers Brewpub has dusted off the ashes and cleaned up the water damage and have managed to reopen after the blaze. Victoria Fire Department’s response kept a bad situation from proving much worse, and as a tribute to them, a new beer has been released in their honour.

Fireman’s Session Thirst Extinguisher, a hoppy west coast session lager at 4.2% ABV and 35 IBU, is a light-bodied, easy drinking beer with notes of citrus from the hops.

Not only are the label and name recognizing the work of the firefighters that day, but partial proceeds from sales of the beer will go to the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund.

The beer is now available in 473 ml tall cans at liquor stores around Victoria and at the brewpub.
