Land of the Trees by Yukon Brewing in Yukon, Canada

About Land of the Trees by Yukon Brewing

This past spring was a bumper crop for spruce tips in the Yukon. They took advantage of that to make a spruce tip gin (Spring Forest) but they still had some left over. Yukon Brewing froze them and pondered where and when they could best be used. With the holiday season upon them, they came upon the idea of using them in this American Pale Ale. The hops used in this beer bring tropical, citrus/berry notes that Yukon Brewing felt would be perfectly offset by the pungent spruce tip flavour. This beer is delightfully golden in colour and medium in body, bursting with hop and spruce flavours.

Made by Yukon Brewing

Yukon Brewing opened its doors in 1997 under the name Chilkoot Brewing Co. Ltd. Owners Alan and Bob conceived their idea like many Yukon babies – around a campfire on a canoe trip. Both Ontario natives, they’ve lived and worked in the Territory for a good deal of their adult lives.
