Natural Selection Brewing 2018
Last year, Miles, Gregor, Sean, and Cameron brought to you the Divergence pilsner (4.5%). The divergence of species has occurred over millions of years, branching off over time into a diverse array of life that makes up the world around us. With this pilsner, they made a beer of Bohemian origin, but with a divergence of the style using British grain and Polish hops resulting in a smooth bitterness, brilliant gold color, and delicate malt profile.
In addition they also made a small-batch brew called Evolution (8.8%), a wee heavy that was aged in a first-fill, ex-sherry Scotch-whiskey barrel. This allowed for the smooth vanilla, oak, and red fruit flavours to develop and round out the dark sugar and caramel notes of the wee heavy base.
