Great work today. Grab a Baard.
Graham DeLaet is a PGA TOUR golfer, born and raised in rural Saskatchewan, with a passion for all things Canadian - including hockey, fishing, golf, and of course, beer.
Prairie Baard is crafted using the finest ingredients that Western Canada has to offer. Our Blue Collar Craft was made to be an easy drinking, premium tasting beer - a great alternative to regular pale ale while not being too crafty in its taste.
The prairie side focuses on the hard working, blue collar mentality of Western Canada. A hard working beer for hard working people.
The other aspect of Prairie Baard embraces living life on your own terms. Living outside the norm of society, whether it's wearing beards, tattoos, or unique hairstyles, it's about creating your own identity.
Our Golden Ale is brewed with 70% Saskatchewan Barley and 30% Saskatchewan wheat both of which are malted in Biggar, SK. Unlike most hazy, cloudy wheat beers, Prairie Baard is filtered to crystal clarity and generously hopped at the end of the brew to give it a distinct aroma without imparting a strong bitterness.
The wheat gives the beer a tart crisp finish, as well as adding some bright biscuit and cracker like aromas. The hops used are called Falconer’s Flight - Seven Seas. Seven Seas refers to it being a blend of seven different “C” hops; Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Citra, Chinook, Comet and Crystal. These hops bring strong and citrus aromas to this already refreshing and crushable ale.
I suppose you could say it's a truly Canadian story - hockey, friendship and beer. From the ice rink to the brewery, Bomber Brewing is the shared dream of three friends with a passion for playing hockey and savouring good beer. They drafted a team, combined their skills, and in February of 2014, launched one of the newest micro-breweries to hit the Vancouver scene.
Head Brewer, Blair Calibaba, has been honing his brewing skills for over 11 years, running the Ambleside Brewing Company and as a regular member of the staff at Dan's Homebrewing. The Bomber post-game became a place to refine his craft and develop his notably balanced and approachable style.
This style is not only the basis of Bomber's beer, but of its brand as a whole. Accessibility and approachability have remained Bomber Brewing's goals from day one, hoping to share the beer they love with novices and connoisseurs alike.
