@backcountrybrewing is tucked away in an industrial/commercial site in the small town between Vancouver and Whistler, they make awesomely big beers.
This was a chance lunch pit stop before heading up to Whistler. I had their Widowmaker IPA the previous night while chasing the sunset over Pilot Peak and boy, was it glorious; good balance of hops, crisp with neither the harshness usually associated with a 6.7% ABV monster nor the bitterness commonly associated (didn’t taste like a 50 IBU but more like a 35-40), it was quite quaffable.
So when I walked into the taproom, I thought I was in IPA heaven. A flight which included that the galaxy IPA and DIPA was perhaps not the most appropriate for lunch but what the heck, you’ve got to live a little; the DIPA was life-changing, so much so that I had a second 10oz just so I could savour that smooth, subtly sweet with a rounded finish.
And to make it more memorable, the Wake N Bacon pizza with its maple garlic cream base hit the right spot with the Pale Ale and ISA; I almost had seconds but had to restraint myself.
This was my awesomest discovery in British Columbia, I found myself looking for Backcountry Brewing throughout the remainder of my sojourn. I hope sometime in the really near future, someone would bring it down South.
Throughout lunch, I was plotting how I could stay in Squamish indefinitely and come by everyday for a pint; I kid you not, I was plotting. 😎
