Hot on the heels of Victoria-based Phillips Brewery’s launch of its extraterrestrially good Hop Circle IPA (“a close encounter of the thirst kind”), another top local brewer, Driftwood, brings us Fat Tug – an IPA with a 7% yank.
I love the cheekiness of it all, but I wonder how I’ll fare when I have to look a barmaid in the face and say: Can I get a Fat Tug please?
(You can see below how much more tastefully this stuff is being done south of the border, via askacopywriter’s blog.)
It’s good times for beer drinkers in Old Vic. Throw Lighthouse and Vancouver Island Brewery into the mix and we have a case to make for Victoria being the best beer city on the planet.
I’ll have that Fat Tug now.
