Nelson Brewing Co.

 - Microbrewery, Independent  
512 Latimer Street
Nelson
www.nelsonbrewing.com

Located in an historic building that housed the original Nelson Brewing Co. over 100 years ago, although the current incarnation was established in 1991, after the brewery had been closed for many years. A small but growing brewery that produces some good English-style ales. Products are available as draft or in 6-packs of 341ml bottles. 6-packs are available at many liquor stores throughout the province, but draft availability is spotty outside the Nelson area.

Nelson After Dark Ale (Brown Ale, 5%) - A brown ale with a strong roasty aroma, nice body, and a full, roasty, somewhat chocolatey flavour. Smooth and sweet, goes down easy.    More Comments [0]   Add Comments/Rate this Beer

Old Brewery Ale (Pale Ale, 5.5%) - A good session pale ale with deep copper colour and a nice flowery hop aroma.    More Comments [0]   Add Comments/Rate this Beer

Paddywhack IPA (India Pale Ale, 6.5%) - Whether a result of the brewery's shift to organic ingredients or other reasons, this beer no longer carries the satisfying hop punch that formerly enabled it to live up to its name.  Amber color with nice floral hoppy aroma, the flavour is all malt with disappointingly little hop bitterness in the finish.    10/01/2007  More Comments [3]   Add Comments/Rate this Beer

Vahalla Gold (Lager, 4.5%) - (No longer available) A light yellow ale with grassy hop aroma and clean flavour.    More Comments [0]   Add Comments/Rate this Beer

Wild Honey Authentic Ale (style unknown, 4.5%) - Hmmm…so the rest of their beers are 'inauthentic'?    More Comments [3]   Add Comments/Rate this Beer
