Whistler Brewing Company – Rambler Pack
Grapefruit Ale 5% abv
Made with a malted blonde base & brewed with fresh grapefruit zest. A very well balanced brew on the malt & hops front, with a clean but intensely enjoyable grapefruit finish. And props to their designers this bottle and label is stunning.
Bear Paw Honey Lager 5% abv
Tastes like it’s right out of the hundred acre woods. Maybe the reason why Pooh takes so many afternoon naps? Brewed with organic BC honey, as smooth as Eeyore’s one liners.
Lost Lake IPA 5.9 % abv 70 IBU
This hoppy IPA is a confident natural beauty (much like the bottle model) that begs to be enjoyed lakeside or at your next campfire. The 70 IBU isn’t in your face but thoroughly appreciated. Light fruity tastes that make this IPA one of my favorite summer IPAs.
Mountain Lager 5% abv
A simple lightly hopped lager with a clean finish. Sometimes simplicity is best. When something is done to perfection you don’t mess with it.

Why I Became President of CAMRA Alberta
I know that at a local level the Alberta craft beer industry creates jobs, supports farmers, contributes to charities, and just generally makes our communities nicer places in which to live, work, and play. I also know that the industry is full of people who care deeply about their craft, collaborate rather than compete, and go out of their way to help each other. I wanted to be a part of that.
