News from Scout supporter Whistler Brewing Co.

Whistler, BC | Whistler Brewing Co’s Brewmaster, Joe Goetz, first brewed the Winter Dunkel in November 2010 for a small group of key restaurants and specialty beer cafes.  The recipe was so unique and such a hit that production for 2011 has been expanded and includes a limited release of 650ml bottles for take home as well draft beer for the hospitality trade.  Following the sell-out successes of the prior limited release beers (Paradise Valley Grapefruit Ale and Valley Trail Chestnut Ale), the Winter Dunkel is expected to sell quickly in both retail stores and restaurants and bars.

The Winter Dunkel recipe is quite unique. It starts with a traditional Dunkel Weiss in mind.  The base malts selected are Wheat and Caramel malts – to give some toffee and chocolate hints to the beer. The chocolate notes are further enhanced by adding some local chocolate from the Whistler Chocolate Company into the brew. Then, to spice it up, Coriander and generous amounts of Sweet Orange Peels are added for some interesting citrus notes, along with some Bitter Orange to balance some of the malt sweetness. The hops selected compliment the recipe, without too much bitterness.  The resulting brew has a subtle hoppiness, complimented with surprising chocolate and orange notes.

“We suggest pairing this interesting brew with rich winter deserts, such as Black Forest Cake, Christmas Pudding and other decadent sweets” says Bruce Dean, President of Whistler Brewing Company.

Whistler Winter Dunkel is now available in a 650ml bottles at both government and private liquor stores throughout British Columbia. The public will also be able to enjoy the product on draught at many local restaurants and bars throughout the province.
