Big Surf Beer is a new brewery in Kelowna that opened in October 2011. I tasted this beer in November, but with the hockey hangover, preparing for travel, and well, life, getting in the way, I am only getting my review up now.
This is a nice smooth beer, whose label transports me to another place, another season. It was probably better suited for me to drink in Australia, but alas, it was Vancouver. It is however, nice to see such a bright label contrasting against the grey Fall sky.
Now that spring is nearly here, it seems more appropriate to pull this photo from my archive, and blow the dust off my review.
This is actually a pretty good beer. It is remarkably smooth and balanced, and like any good Canadian lager, just a little boring, until you have 5 or six. This is a great beer to have at noon, then at 12:30, then more, then play in the lake, then have another one, then sit in the hot tub, and … well you get the idea.
It is also nice that this beer doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t. It is really cheap, (comes only in cans) really decent, and really laid back.
