REVIEW: Big Rock Beer & Cider

Big Rock – Variety Pack

Mosaic Lager 5.5% abv IBU 70

A perfectly refreshing, thirst quenching hop first lager. Pours a striking golden straw colour with a light foamy head. Long lasting carbonation and my favorite out of the pack. You can really taste the quality of the mosaic hops.

Purple Gas 5.2% abv

Alberta wheat takes the strong lead into a mellow pool of Saskatoon berries. Lightly sweetened with pure honey, 100% Albertan patio crushable

Grasshopper Wheat Ale 5% abv

Ode to my very first craft beer, served with a traditional slice of lemon. Grasshopper is an Albertan staple made with AB grown wheat & barley. The ultimate summer sippin, patio crushable, sunshine in a glass Grasshopper Wheat Ale.

Rhinestone Cowboy Kolsch Style Ale 4.6% abv

A naturally light kolsch with a 100% ease of drinkability. These babies go down fast, a hint of noble hops balance the Pale & Vienna malts.

(Sometimes even I like to drink other things than beer, cider is a natural switch for me and this variety 6-pack goes down so smooth).

Dry Cider with Peach 5.5% abv

High carbonation, fresh apples paired with ripened peaches makes for a beautiful marriage. This cider offers an intense peach aroma followed through with a strong peach lead and clean finish. A deadly peachlicious summer bevy.

Dry Apple Cider 5.5% abv

Brewed with Okanagan apples, pours a deep golden colour. Hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Easy drinking refreshing sweet Canadian cider.

Dry Cider with Pear 5.8% abv

I think Big Rock grabbed a bunch of bartlett pears and squeezed them into cans! Oh yeah, and with the effervescence of champagne. If that doesn’t convince you to try this let your girlfriend or wife read this. Or better yet (pour it into a champagne glass with a thin slice of pear and hand that to her) You’re welcome.
