Deadman Creek is an unusual name, we know! Of course, cranberries in beer is a little odd too and being different is what we’re really all about. With an explosion of lime lagers now out on the market, the big boys have proved what we’ve been saying all along “flavour is good!” We take an already damn fine wheat ale and add cranberries during fermentation. Then, with lots of tangy yeast flavour interacting with the tart cranberries we choose to leave it unfiltered and then put it in bottles or kegs for your enjoyment. We decided early in the year that such a unique beer deserved some cool packaging so we tracked down former Yukoner turned Northern BC’er Meghan Hildebrand to create  the stunning piece featured above. To our surprise Meghan told us this was her favorite beer and she was pumped about the name we had picked. Deadman Creek, an actual creek found in the remote backcountry of the Yukon is an ode to the crazy spirits that built the north and were adventurous enough to settle this frontier. So Deadman Creek, Cranberry Wheat is hitting the shelves now and we suggest you grab a Deadman!

BeefNBeer (6) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2006 does not count
My beer had good head! Hazy orange beer. Smooth. Also agree that it is a bit bready. Cant really distinquish the cranberry. A little too tart. Overall opinion... I would drink it again.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2006
Hazy amber orange, thin head that disappears pretty quickly. Faint wet-hair aroma, no real fruit aroma though. Modestly malty palate, a little bready, with the faintest hint of berry fruit. More tart than flavourful. Not bad, but the other brews put out by tis excellent company are better.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2006
Hazy amber colour with minimal head. Aroma was slightly wheaty and artificial cranberry. A tad of fruit but otherwise pretty thin. Slightly sticky at the end.

Crit (3642) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2005
Hazy gold,white head.Light cranberry nose.Rather bland, with just a hint of fruit, which you couldn’t detect as cranberries

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2005
Butt-ugly murky dun colour. Instantly dissipating head. Slightly phenolic aroma with light hints of fruit. Tart body, thin, with dusty yeastiness. Not a whole lot going on, sadly.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Add Yukon to the effort. Hazy light amber appearance, sickly head. While there are faint cranberries & wheat, I think they used this name over "saccarine and wet cardboard" primarily for marketing reasons.
