(Halifax) East Comes (Alberta) West

My friends at Delancy Direct tell me that some Garrison beers from Halifax are headed to Alberta, including the very fine Grand Baltic Porter I am now enjoying as the Blue Jays dismantle the Twins. It’s perhaps a bit fuller bodied and ale-ish,and  almost certainly more licorice-accented, than I remember it, but nevertheless it is a thoroughly enjoyable brew.

I wrote recently that since Garrison developed an affection for off-kilter styles like so-called “Imperial” IPAs and Baltic porters, they seem to have found their brewing groove. Albertans, get a case of the Baltic and serve it chilled late on a balmy summer night.
