After some trouble with the law (concerning the original name ‘No Jail Pale Ale’), Cannery’s No Justice Pale Ale has finally hit the shelves. At only 3%, you can drink the bomber without getting bombed.

Granville Island Brewing recently bottled their Limited Release Imperial IPA. Available at their retail store, and should be in select LDB stores soon.

Great Western Brewing is releasing the Original 16 Canadian Pale Ale to honour the “employees who saved this regional brewer from the wrecking ball more than 20 years ago”.

There’s a bunch of news from Tree Brewing. They’ve ditched the industry standard twist-off for an attractive new bottle and open 6-pack design. The Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale, Cut Throat Pale Ale, and Hop Head IPA are already on the shelves, and the Kelowna Pilsner will be joining them soon.

Tree’s Beach Blonde Lager is now canned and available in 6-packs, which will be great for the summer.

And finally, Tree just bottled their Captivator Doppelbock. Stefan Buhl is the German Braumeister behind this malty delight that won Gold at the 2010 Canadian Brewing Awards.
