15 years. I have lived in British Columbia for just shy of 15 years and now I find myself saying goodbye to this most beautiful province as I, the hubby, our assorted pets and Juliet (our u-Haul) make our way across the country.
While it is always hard to say goodbye it is also exciting to think of all the new places and all the new craft beers I am going to explore in this next phase of our lives.
To commemorate my transition I thought I would mark each evening with a beer local to wherever I happen to land for the night.
First up is my final British Columbia beer, well to be clear my final BC beer consumed as a resident of the province, not my final BC beer ever. Anyway I digress as tonight with dinner I began my journey with a pint of Mt. Begbie High Country Kolsch on tap in Revelstoke home of Mt. Begbie Brewing.
This Kolsch pours a bright clear gold colour with very little head and lots of carbonation. There is a slightly yeasty slights sweet nose, it is very light bodied and you get subtle a sweet grassy flavour, mild hops and some wheat beer character. The finish is quite dry. Overall a really nice beer after a long day on the road.
Stay tuned as I continue to drink my way across Canada (not while I am driving of course).
