WLCBF 2019 FAN FAVORITE
2019 saw a Northern BC brewery take home the Fan Favorite award as the Mud Bogger Dark Lager from Three Ranges Brewing in Valemount garnered the most votes. It’s a well-balanced dark lager with a hint of smoke and at 5.5% ABV and 20 IBU it should please everyone. And it did.
WLCBF 2018 FAN FAVOURITE
Lighthouse Brewing from Victoria took home the 2018 WLCBF Fan Favourite award for their Nightwatch Coffee Lager. Their beer is brewed by blending a classic light lager with locally made cold brew coffee, resulting in a crisp, clean lager with distinct coffee flavours such as hazelnut, cinnamon, and chocolate notes on the nose and palate. Easy drinking at 5% ABV and 9 IBU.
WLCBF 2017 FAN FAVORITE
Four Winds Brewing from Delta, BC won the 2017 Fan Favourite Beer for their Apparition White IPA. (6%, 60 IBU) This hopped-up white ale sings of lush tropical fruits and subtle hints of spice. Fermented with classic Belgian witbier yeast and infused with copious amounts of new world hops for a balanced burst of citrus and pineapple.
WLCBF 2016 FAN FAVORITE
Red Collar Brewing from Kamloops BC took home Fan Favourite honours in 2016 for their Dopplebock. This seasonal offering comes out in fall and is eagerly anticipated. It’s a clean German lager (7.7% ABV, 32 IBU) featuring dark roasted malt flavours. With a minimal hop bitterness, the sweet characteristics of this beer are nicely balanced with a very slight hint of alcohol warmth.
