Four Winds Brewing Co.

I’m sure you’ve heard of and had Four Winds Brewing Co.’s famous, award winning nectarous dry hopped sour beer. They’re located in an off the beaten path, random Delta plaza that also houses a Subway.

Hours.

We’ve been twice and both times it’s been to a packed house. The tap room is bright, airy and roomier (they’ve expanded so there’s even more seating). There’s about a dozen seats at the U-shaped bar. Service is friendly; go up to the bar to order your drinks and food.

There’s 12 beers on tap along with a few cider (Left Field, Nomad and Dominion Cider) and wine (Arrowleaf) options.

The food menu consists of tacos and tapas.

A couple beside us ordered several tapas dishes; all looked and smelled great.

Sauces are located in a corner near the self-serve water.

Their beer fridge has a mix of cans, bottles and packs.

A couple speciality bottles looked intriguing (Pomona and Bramble) but wish you could sample these beforehand. Those were both $15.00 each.

These won’t be there anymore but what was in the beer fridge.

The merchandise is minimalist but carefully crafted; hats, growlers, beer openers, glassware and shirts.

Trip #1
We dropped in on a Thursday afternoon (around 2:00pm) and grabbed seats at the bar.

Flight ($6.00 for 4)
DSC06401Operis (Brett saison), la maison (wild saison), fog zombie (hazy double IPA) and pluum (blended plum sour).

Interestingly, the fog zombie was a collaboration with Bellwoods Brewery. All the beers were decent but we didn’t love the plum beer as we’d anticipated.

Cachete ($4.25)
DSC06419Confit beef cheeks served with salsa roja, onion and cilantro. Beef cheeks were tender and flavourful. The salsa roja had a sharp unexpected heat to it.

Vélo ($14.00 for 6)
DSC06423They were out of this on their beer taps so we bought a box of cans for home.

Nothing particularly memorable.

Trip #2
We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 4:00pm).

Flight ($6.00 for 4)
DSC09708Huftgold (German style pilsner), nectarous (dry hopped sour), triplicity (Belgian tripel) and mild (dark mild). The huftgold tasted like every other German beer we’ve had; light in flavour but easy to drink.

DSC09714

Nectarous is still our favourite beer of Four Wind’s; tart, crisp and slightly sour.

DSC09713

Triplicity was better than expected; smooth, lightly malty flavour.

DSC09712

Mild tasted like a watered down coffee stout.

DSC09711

Baba ganoush tostada ($4.25)
DSC09718Toasted pine nut, cottage cheese, chive, sour cream and paprika. Tostada is crunchy. Flavours combine harmoniously together for a couple of tasty bites. Who would have thought baba ganoush would work?

Lamb leg ($4.25)
DSC09717Flour tortilla, chimichurri aioli, onion, radish and cilantro. Lamb was tender and juicy (literally juice will flow out upon first bite). Normally, we prefer corn tortillas over flour but this worked well with the lamb. Tortilla was lightly toasted.

DSC09719

If you’re in the ‘hood, go check FWB out. Solid tacos and cheapest flight we’ve come across
