Summer is here and to celebrate, Fernie Brewing has launched an addition to their seasonal line up; Base Camp West Coast Pale Ale.

A bold, hop forward Pale Ale, boasting a delicious tropical aroma, this on-trend brew is a style of beer that our Head Brewer, Jeff Demaniuk, was eager to brew upon his arrival to Fernie Brewing Co. back in the fall of 2016. Six months later and it’s come to fruition, with a timely summer arrival.

As the illustration of a Boler trailer on the bottle suggests, Base Camp makes a refreshing pairing to weekend camping trips, post-surf celebrating, and long days at the beach.

While the Kootenays may not be known for legendary surfing, the easy-going essence of the West Coast is certainly captured in this delicious brew, and can be enjoyed anywhere.

This perfect summer beer leaves nothing by the wayside, with Mosaic and Ekuanot hops delivering tropical fruit flavors and a hint of caramel from the Crystal malts. Available from July – September, Base Camp’s arrival is timed to quench a thirst and satisfy a craving for the perfect Pale Ale, in the heat of summer.

Base Camp is now available at local Fernie liquor stores and is on tap at restaurants and bars in the area. Soon after, this new brew will be making its way across BC and into Alberta.
