REVIEW: Bowen Island Brewing, Adventure Pack

These Bowen Island Brewery beer reviews are the last of the Beer Maven’s summer series called “Patio Crushables”. Does that mean summer is ending? BOO! Well… good thing we still have beer.

REVIEW: Bowen Island Brewing, Adventure Pack

Bowen Island Brewing

Freestone Summer Ale 5% abv

*Warning this beer could become an addiction. A Belgian style wheat beer brewed with peaches & apricots. The aroma is fresh peach all the way with apricot making a strong supporting act. Best enjoyed cold on a hot summers day in a mason jar with a slice of peach.

Reef Break 5% abv

The can says ‘If it were anymore BC it would be illegal’ . The flavour is there with a light infusion of hemp. This barely legal beer is light and crushable for days. ‘Do you even drink bruh ?’

Deep 6 Lager 5% abv

A full mouthfeel lager with medium maltiness & hops. Tastes like the ocean. Best enjoyed on a beach or while dreaming of one.

Artisan IPA 5.5% abv

The pour is a toasty golden colour with a decent head that lingers. I love the carbonation in this IPA and enjoy the hard-hitting hops from the first sip. The finish is more grapefruit than hops and is quick to take over once you swallow.
