COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, red malty ale is the culmination of Nick and Ingrid’s excellent adventure! A collaborative exchange with Norway’s Nøgne Ø saw the two brewers swapping lives and jobs “half a world away”. This beer was built on friendship, brewed to remind us that natural ingredients are always the best. Drink in good company.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Bright reddish-brown. Aroma has crystal malt, some fruity-earthy notes. Taste us similar. Light body for a beer this size. Not a bad beer, but certainly not exciting.
