DayTrip West Coast Lager takes Best of B.C. and Best Light Lager at Canadian International Beer Awards


DayTrip Lager: well-balanced, packed with flavour and inspired by the adventurous spirit of our west coast

DayTrip West Coast Lager, the newest brew by Stanley Park Brewing debuted well at the recent Canadian International Beer Awards, (presented by the Alberta Beer Festivals). Just a few weeks into the market, DayTrip has picked up Gold for Best of B.C. as well as Gold for Best Light Lager.

The latest addition to the Stanley Park Brewing regular beer line-up; DayTrip is brewed to an approachable 4.4% alc./vol. and 25 IBUs, and is aged for 28 days giving it a smooth, medium-light bodied taste. This easy-drinking lager offers a light citrus hop character coming from the mix of El Dorado, Amarillo and Citra hops.

“This beer is brewed for backpacks and ready for adventure”, shares Todd Fowler, Brewmaster at Stanley Park Brewing. “I wanted to brew a sessionable lager that would really be a perfect pairing for an adventurous spirit. Whether it’s a day on the beach or at the lake, hiking a new trail or run around the seawall; DayTrip celebrates the explorers. So pack your bag, prep your taste buds and get ready to take on the day!”
