Pamplemousse Pale Ale, the beer building bike trails in Squamish
When RideBC approached us about making a beer as a companion to their Pamplemousse trail, the challenge was in making something as approachable and complex as the trail. Grapefruit (pamplemousse) was an obvious touchstone, but we wanted to layer in complimentary fruit flavours, instead of making a grapefruit bomb.
Pamplemousse Pale Ale pours a hazy golden orange, with a rich white head. It releases aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin orange, lime, and mango. Cantaloupe joins the fruit salad as it hits your tongue, with a hint of green pepper skin. A subtle bitterness that is reminiscent of fruit pith sits in the back with a bright carbonation.
At 4.8% and packaged in 355ml cans, this is an easy-drinking post-ride treat, a refreshing summit beer, or just a delicious go-to.
Best of all: $2 from every six-pack goes to support Squamish trails, so you can give back with every beer you enjoy, and isn't that the dream?
