Cheers to Spring Beers!

Posted on: April 23, 2023

To quote poet Robert Frost, “The sun was warm, but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day.”
Spring beers are deliciously versatile just like this season’s weather.  Most seasonal brews are driven by seasonal ingredients, reflecting these changing and growing periods by incorporating ingredients that typically become available during different times of the year.  Much of the springtime weather can still be cool, however Spring is the start of the new hops season, and most beer drinkers are eager to start thinking about sunshine and the outdoors.  You may be ready to open the cottage or prepping your garden, let’s give cheers to Spring beers available at The Beer Store

Starting with the Muskoka Detour by Muskoka Brewery— a truly easy drinking, dry-hopped India session ale packs big juicy flavours with a slightly dry finish.  Match this ale with The Beer Store’s Loaded Nachos with Cheesy Lager Sauce.Ever heard of a “saison”?  It’s a tart but refreshing beer-style that was traditionally brewed for French-speaking farmhands in Europe.  Make this the season of saison with Block Three Brewing Company’s King Street Saison.  Their beverage is a Belgian saison with notes of citrus, coriander, peppercorn and bubblegum!

On a crisp Spring day make sure to sip on the Vienna Lager from Fenelon Falls Brewery, here in Ontario.  A light-bodied lager, with toasty and caramel notes balanced by a gentle hops character.  Plus, it pairs nicely with grilled sausages slathered with The Beer Store’s Spicy German Lager Mustard Sauce.

Why not celebrate Spring’s cherry blossoms with cherry beer!  High Park Brewery has crafted Under the Sakura Cherry Blossom Lager, a light wheat based lager with a subtle hint of cherry aroma and flavour.  It is brewed to create a unique and easy drinking lager in celebration of the annual spring cherry blossom festival in High Park.

So expand your palate this Spring by experimenting with the latest in the ever-growing world of craft beer.  Share your experiences with us  @cloverdalemall on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
