Stanley Park Brewing Launches New Winter Seasonal Beer

Layer Up: refreshing taste with a unique flavour combination of fig, raspberry, orange and ginger

Stanley Park Brewing is thrilled to launch a new seasonal beer during BC Craft Beer Month, a celebration of local beers. Layer Up is a Dark American Wheat Ale and is the first beer to use a unique flavour combination of fig, raspberry, orange and ginger. The new Layer Up brew was inspired by a recent trip to Nashville at the World Beer Cup, the most prestigious beer competition in the world! The Stanley Park Brewing team tasted a Italian olive cake with FROG (fig, raspberry, orange and ginger) jam for dessert and decided to find a way to bring these flavours to life through beer!

Layer Up is the latest addition to Stanley Park Brewing regular beer line-up including Daytrip (Lager), 1897 Amber (Amber Ale), Windstorm (West Coast Pale Ale), Trail Hopper IPA (India Pale Ale) and Noble Pilsner (European Style Lager). Layer Up represents the colder winter months and encourages people to embrace the season. It’s refreshing taste comes from its flavour profile from Southern USA and is a layered beer – at first, you can smell the raspberry, taste the orange and fig and its ends with a refreshing taste of ginger. Layer Up is dry hopped with Amarillo with a 5.2% alc./volume and and 18 IBU.

“We’re excited to launch a new seasonable beer for customers who are looking for a different taste this Winter.”, shares Kris Loshack, Certified Cicerone at Stanley Park Brewing. “Over the past ten years we have focused on creating approachable, flavourful and sessionable beers and we wanted to create a winter beer that aligned with that idea. The goal here was to create a flavorful dark wheat ale that had people coming back for more.” “Layer Up was inspired by a jam accompaniment to an olive oil cake that we tried during the World Beer Cup dinner in Nashville at the Craft Brewers Conference. We were blown away by the flavours of fig, raspberry, orange and ginger and knew we had to bring these fresh new flavours to the market. We look forward to hearing what our fans think about the new brew!”
