OCTOBER LIMITED RELEASE
Spruce Tip Stout Five West Coast craft brewers teamed up to create a collaboration beer that required a packaging solution that not only celebrated craft and teamwork – but also saluted the craft beer drinkers bold enough to give it a try. Spruce Tip Stout, made with real Spruce tips, was brewed to celebrate BC Craft Beer Month by R&B Brewing, Brassneck Brewery, Red Truck Brewing, Main Street Brewing, and 33 Acres Brewing – all British Columbian breweries that call the Brewery Creek District of Vancouver home. St. Bernadine embraced the challenge by creating a removable embroidered badge for the primary label. Evoking the spirit of collaboration and West Coast camaraderie, the removable patch delivers the ultimate in “badge marketing,” letting craft beer lovers earn their craft badge and letting them peel off the collectible memento of BC Craft Month.
Spruce Tip Stout is a Limited Edition beer, available in draught and 650 ml bottles at craft beer supporting establishments. Please order through the brewery.

Birra Fresca Cucumber Mint IPA is named after agua fresca (“fresh water”), flavoured water and sugar drinks that are found throughout Mexico and other Central American and Caribbean countries. One popular version contains cucumber and mint, and according to the brewery, “the thought was that the cucumber mint IPA would be just as refreshing, if not more so.”
Based on R&B’s Hoppelganger IPA, Birra Fresca is a 6% abv and 50 IBU IPA made using more than 200 organic cucumbers that were sourced locally along with the mint.
(50 IBU, 6% ABV)
