Seaweed in My Beer?
70655_EdibleVanc_I008

Mom always told us not to judge a book by its cover, but the truth is we don’t follow every word of her advice. (Just most of them.) Judging books by their covers and beer by their labels has served us well.

The Comfort of Tea

STORY BY JANET NICOL - PHOTOS BY MICHELLE PETERS

Can the camellia sinensis, as the evergreen tea plant is named, grow on Canada’s west coast? Members of the BC Tea Growers Association think so. The non-profit society, founded in 2011 by tea enthusiasts Adrian Sinclair and Karlis Kalnins, aims to promote the local cultivation of tea. Their website includes a history of local tea growing, dating back more than half a century to St. Vincent’s Tea Plantation in the Fraser Valley.

If winter is not your favourite season, perhaps you need to meet The Hermannator. Vancouver Island Brewing has been making this seasonal treat for 25 years, a Bavarian-style Ice Bock that annually warms the hearts of beer lovers throughout our region. (When we purchased a six-pack at Brewery Creek Liquor Store within a day of the October release, the cashier’s face lit up with happiness, as if she’d just caught sight of an old friend.) We call this one big and beefy not just because it’s 9.5% alcohol but because it’s a chewy beer you’ll be tempted to attack with a knife and fork. Next time the skies open up, hunker down by the fire and count on Hermannator to offer all the comfort of a caramel bread pudding.
