The Yukon's first brewery in eighty years. Hardcore Pubcrawler reports:
On a recent trip to Canada I discovered a new brewery located in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. I don't have much information about them yet however I did try one of there beers and it was quite good. Since we made this trip on our snowmobiles (210 miles one way cross country at -40 degrees fahrenheit) I was only able to bring back a couple of bottles.
This is an annual trip that a bunch of us sled heads do every year. We ride from Tok Alaska to Dawson City Yukon. We call it the Trek over the Top. We normally stay in Dawson City for three days. Most of the time is spent in one of the three saloons that are open at that time of the year as well as Diamond Tooth Gerties, the only casino in the Yukon. This year when we arrived in Dawson City our favorite hang out, the Sourdough Saloon had a fresh keg of Discovery Ale from Chilkoot Brewery waiting for us.
We were also able to obtain a few bottles of Discovery Ale at the government run liquor store. These are Grolsh style bottles with ceramic lids. Discovery Ale is an Amber Ale with fire weed honey added.
Some of my friends and I are planning a pilgrimage to Whitehorse this summer to check out the brewery.
And people think I'm fanatical...
