Well, another month has passed and we’re getting a whole lot closer to judgment day. It’s the end of the world as you know it but we don’t mind, and nor should you. Why? Because we have another experimental brew from Elysian Brewing! The 7th installment from the “12 Beers of the Apocalypse” series has arrived in BC, and it’s called the Torrent Pale Beet Bock.
You do not have to adjust your screen, you are not reading it wrong, and nor is it a typo. The Torrent Pale Beet Bock really has beets in the beer! Really. It may sound a little weird but Elysian totally pulled it off. This is as experimental as it gets. Vancouver Craft Beer. Craft Beer Vancouver
The appearance of the Torrent Pale Beet Bock is absolutely beautiful. It looks like red candy. It has a sweet, malty, earthy aroma, but the nose is no sneak preview to what awaits your palate. The taste starts off with a slightly sweet, biscuit-y, pilsner malt flavour, then the beet takes over. It’s medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and you definitely get a bit of alcohol warmth. It’s like a fusion between a maibock and borscht (Eastern European beet soup). BC craft beer
The Torrent Pale Beet Bock may sound a little weird but it’s definitely worth a try. It’s a great addition to the “12 Beers of the Apocalypse” series. It’s available on draft at Portland Craft, Rogue Kitchen and Wetbar (Waterfront), St. Augustine’s and Alibi Room. You can find it in bottles in most of the “craft beer forward” private liquors in Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, and Victoria BC. Where to buy Torrent Pale Beet Bock in Vancouver.
