The Church Brewing Company started with two brothers originally from Nova Scotia who moved out west. They’ve since come back home to start up their dream brewery.
The Church brews German and Belgian inspired beers in their brewery which used to be an old church. The team worked hard to restore the building and give it a new life as one of Nova Scotia’s newest breweries!
A very hazy straw colour with a fluffy dense white head. The aroma bursts of papaya and pineapple, with underlying notes of honeydew melon and sticky ripe mangos. The flavour is tropical punch: papaya, pineapple, and tangerines. The finish is extremely soft with a bitterness that keeps the beer balanced and semi-sweet. It drinks like juice.
This is a hazy pale Ale fermented with Voss Kveik (pronounced kvike or quake) yeast Church sourced from Escarpment Labs. This Norwegian farmhouse ale strain which was handed down generations of a family farmhouse brewery of Sigmun Gjerne’ Voss. This yeast, without the addition of hops, is already extremely citrusy, producing a great juicy Pale Ale. The beer is dry-hopped with Mosaic and Vic Secret hops which give a huge bounty of tropical aromas and flavours.
