Howe Sound Rail Ale Nut Brown
A smooth, flavourful nut brown ale with hints of chocolate and licorice. Made with 100% barley, hops, water & yeast, it is named in recognition of the region's strong railway history and Squamish BC's West Coast Railway Heritage Park - Home of the Royal Hudson and Western Canada's largest collection of heritage railway equipment.
Canadian Silver 2009 -Brown Ale
This rich nut brown ale goes well with hearty fare such as hamburgers and sausages, and matches well with stews and smoked fish. The roasted malt finish makes it a nice accompaniment with many cheeses and desserts.
This re-closable bottle, known as a “pot-stopper”, was widely used in Europe and North America prior to the 1950s. Our new combination cap is an innovative design that allows closure by both crown and swing caps. It can be re-used and meets our green packaging objectives.
Howe Sound Brewery
Over a century ago breweries dotted British Columbia’s landscape. Hop farming flourished and the Squamish Valley Hop Ranch supplied hops to the British Empire. With the advent of Prohibition, the number of breweries and hop farms dwindled. By the 1970s only a few large breweries remained.
In 1980, BC’s John Mitchell and Frank Appleton pioneered North America’s first modern craft brewery at Horseshoe Bay on BC’s spectacular Howe Sound. This began what has become known as the “craft brewing renaissance”.
In 1996, John Mitchell helped design the Howe Sound Brewery and worked as our first brewer developing our initial recipes. Known as the “grandfather of micro-brewing in Canada”, we are proud of his ongoing relationship with our brewery. Today we continue to brew in the craft style using unfiltered 100% barley mash. We pride ourselves in brewing a diverse selection of flavorful, well-balanced ales. We invite you to enjoy the experience.www.howesound.com
