Beer Friday. Jasper Brewing Co. Crisp Pils

Have I mentioned before how this is my favourite Beer Friday to post? This is the last day of work after fourteen straight grueling nights. When posting this I am indifferent though, the last few hitches have had little emotion as I am so stuck on work mode, albeit I am glad that it is over, it's just you get into such a routine and in a way become institutionalized. Kind of fucked up when you think about it.

Jasper Brewing Company is a small brewer in Jasper National Park. Home of absolute pure awesome. The town of Jasper is where I discovered mountain bikes. A discovery that changed my life at a young age. Jasper National Park is a place that I hold close to my heart. Every visit biking or non bike gives a special feeling of home which I cannot explain.

This year is Canada's 150th birthday and Jasper brewing brought this one out just to celebrate the noble event. The can is done up in old school National Park park pass colours which brings tears of pride to ones eye whom has a heart for the incredible National Park system we have here in Canada.

Seriously. Hate to be bias but if you are a reader from far away and have been on the fence to come visit Canada. Do it. Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton are good destinations, just head into the mountains after a quick tour. If this blog inspires you to see the Edmonton river valley, give it half a day. Love the valley at home in Edmonton but it does not compare from what you can see (and ride) in the mountains.

The pour was a crisp, golden, heavenly coloured beer which elicits an orgasmic reaction. The thought of having one of these baby's after a roll through Jasper is quite the welcome. Maybe I should taste this before I start fantasizing. The first sip was that of a common Pilsner. My heart will give this one a bit higher of a review as it is what it is but, we are here to get serious. A common Pilsner which is a lot better cold. Which this one is. Refreshing hops. Plain, pure and simple. A clean beer that would be nice after a fun day in the mountains. At 4.8% it is a nice light beer. If you have a palate for something that is quite adventurous I suggest you go someplace else.

This beer gets 3 suds out of 5.

The Annual Wet Pilgrimage to Sturgeon

A delightful ride on a very typical May long weekend Sunday. Why does this happen every single May long weekend? The rain is good though as ...
