I hope they use their local malt to make something other than IPA, Double IPA, ISA, Triple IPA, Black IPA, White IPA, or BlahBlahIPA.

They're IPA specialists.  You can get watered down piss at any liquor store in Victoria if that's what you're into.

Surely as someone with beer as their avatar you can appreciate there are other types of beer than IPA and other local breweries with offerings that would not qualify as 'watered down piss' (have you already had too many this morning?). If their business decision is to make only IPA's then so be it. I will then revise my hope that other local breweries will make something that is not IPA out of the local malt.

Lol.

 

And it is a black IPA in the picture.  I just happen to love IPAs and hope they continue to turn out an admittedly absurd amount of IPAs.

I like Phillips' kolsch quite a bit. Liking the short wave as well.

 

Overall though, I am over IPAs. I say no thanks to the overdone, palate ruining bitterness. If I don't want my face burnt off by overpowering hops, don't turn your nose up at me craft beer snobs.

 

Back in the day, IPAs were only for beer dorks. Now it seems like everybody loves them, which I really don't understand since they tend to be so aggressive. Craft beer is becoming synonymous with overdone hoppiness. It has been like a hops arms race out there.

 

Calling any beer that's not an IPA watered down piss is pretty lame. Gotta love that northwest craft beer pretentiousness...

I'm a big fan of their ISA - Bottlerocket. Very drinkable. Short Wave is a nice addition to their line too.

I am not a beer historian, but I trace the hoppiness craze to San Diego.  Twelve years ago, their beers were so much more hoppy than the NW offerings.  I don't understand the appeal myself.  OTOH Phillips makes some great beers that are completely palatable, and I don't think are watered down piss at all.  So if they want to go nuts on a few ultra hoppy beers, they should totally do what makes them happy.

I believe in having as many hops as people want. If people want super strong IPAs go to town.

 

That being said, my preferred Philips choices are usually Blue Buck, Electric Unicorn and (lately) Apteryx. In fact, Philips can do things other than hops -- for instance, their Solaris Milk Stout last winter was really great with nice smooth malty flavours and depth. I hope they bring it back.

I have a keg of Slipstream and Elsinore coming on Friday. Phillips makes a very wide range of beer, not to mention other drinks. We sell a lot of their ginger ale and root beer.

Big fan of Category 12 too. Great beer, very fresh, really good sales rep. Makes my life easier, and picks up sales in return. Two kegs of the black ipa in the cooler right now.

To clarify I was referring to the 1-2 aisles of "beers" in liquor stores (e.g., Canadian, Coors, Cariboo, Islander) that don't come close to matching even the worst local brews.

The volume of craft beer IPA's is a PIA. Every bloody bar has IPA this and IPA that.

"Are you guys, like, locals? We have this awesome IP..."

"Stop. I want a lager. Simplest one to pronounce. And no, if it comes in a bottle, don't bring me a glass. Thank you."

Isn't that where the pet place is now? It will take some doing to get the stench out. You can smell the dogs from the street.

First the municipal approvals must be received, and we know that can take a little bit of time. My sense it they'll be underway this year with an opening next year?
