Heathen’s Brewing

We’d randomly spotted Heathen’s Brewing while in the area and made a mental note to check them out. They specialize in offering 100% gluten free beer, the only brewery that does this in western Canada.

Flight ($11.50 for 4)
DSC04927We decided to try the peanut butter stout, cherry sour, coconut porter and stout chocolate coffee.

DSC04928

Peanut butter stout smelled exactly like peanut butter. Good flavour.

DSC04929

Cherry sour didn’t have much cherry notes; more like a golden sour.

DSC04930

Coconut porter was very coconut forward; tasted like a sweetened coconut.

DSC04931

Chocolate coffee stout smelled exactly like coffee. Strong coffee flavour and a smooth texture similar to Guinness.

Hibiscus tea radler ($2.50)
DSC04932Light on the hibiscus flavour but an easy sipper.

Freya’s passionate sour ($5.75)
DSC04936We bought a can so that we could try their other sour. Turned out to be the better sour with more flavour.

Kvasir’s peanut butter stout ($5.75)
