    Okay, shoutout to my fellow hippie fine beer lovers who live in the country to our north.

    I love spruce beer, lucky enough to have friends who are masters at it, so yummy. Now you can enjoy some for a good cause. Profits from this go to the $1,000,000 needed for work on wilderness parks.

    Anybody tried this one? How was it?

    Anybody tried any other spruce beer?

    Phillips made a spruce tip ale called Evergreen Ale a few years back, and there was a collab spruce tip stout from six or so Vancouver breweries a few months ago...other than that I haven't seen any others in recent memory... though I remember Evergreen Ale to be super delicious. Also someone should make a spruce tip cda!

    Tofino Brewing in BC made a spruce tip IPA using their standard IPA which they soaked in spruce tips.

    Also Ale Apothecary in Oregon makes a beer called Sahati which they have the wort sit in a spruce tree and use the needles as a filter.
