99 Bottles33 Acres of Life

33-acres-of-life

Vancouver’s own 33 Acres Brewing pays homage to the West Coast with the eponymous 33 Acres of Life, a hybrid of lager and ale brewed in the Californian Common style. This deeply amber brew balances a distinct fruitiness with malty finish. At 4.8% ABV the lightness of the beer belies the flavour it packs.
