Introduction
The Beer Diaries exists to Celebrate and Promote Craft Beer Around the World. We do in-depth interviews with brewers to discuss their breweries and beers, as well as share insights on these amazing people. We've got a YouTube channel and are developing beer-oriented apps to help people enjoy beer even more than they do now.

A brew that celebrates (and benefits from) Alberta's malt barley industry, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/olds-college-aggie-ale/
Anything dubbed ‘Aggie Ale’ possesses such an appropriate moniker for an offering from any sort of rural Alberta brewing concern, eh? This beer appears a clear, dark ruby amber colour, with one fat finger of puffy, loosely foamy, and a tad chunky ecru head, which leaves some solid snow rime lace around the glass as …

Spring, Montana barroom-style, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/big-sky-shake-a-day-ipa/
At first glance, I wondered what it is about this particular IPA that makes it ‘seasonal”? It turns out that Big Sky just wanted to make a different IPA from their main one, and turned to Australian, as well as PacNW hops to create a sidestep offering, available from March to May, aka ‘Spring’, in …

Fresh input, and all that, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/big-rock-mosaic-lager/
The Mosaic Lager is currently part of the latest Big Rock Swinger variety pack, and appears to be destined for regular bottled production. Made with, obviously, solely the Mosaic hop varietal. This 355ml can pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with three fat fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly bubbly off-white head, …

More Canadian seasonal goodness, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/mill-street-madawaska-maple-ale/
Madawaska Maple Ale is another cog in the current Mill Street Spring mixed pack, and is an Irish Red Ale, made with traditionally sourced maple syrup from the titular valley, or so sez the back label marketing spiel. This 355ml bottle pours a clear, medium copper amber colour, with three fat-ass fingers of puffy, finely …

Innovation in the brewing/distillation relationship provides some pretty cool results, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/yukon-brewing-spirit-dog/
Spirit Dog is a little experiment by our Yukon friends to the north, wherein they used the bierschnapps that they originally created by distilling Lead Dog Ale, to augment a fresh batch of said brew – how very full circle, and so beer meta! This 650ml bottle pours a clear, dark rusted brick brown colour, …

The next wave of Alberta craft brewing continues unabated, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/bench-creek-naked-woodsman-pale-ale/
Bench Creek Brewing comes all the way, a few hours or so, to we who are East of Edson (for all you Captain Tractor fans)! And why does this offering’s name make me think of that line from the Simpsons: ‘the squid looks like it’s been hacked by a blind woodsman’? This 473ml can pours …

In anticipation of the next season, we present you this, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/okanagan-spring-honey-kolsch/
The Honey Kölsch is Okanagan Spring Brewery’s Summer 2016 seasonal, released about a month ago, and thus probably the first of the year, then! This 341ml bottle pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with two chubby fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly creamy eggshell white head, which leaves a bit of electrical …

Some gateway lager, for when you're well past the Gateway to the North, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/gp-brewing-maddhatters-mercury/
GP Brewing is one of the new brewing operations to begin canning in this good province of ours, and this is ostensibly a ‘contract’ brew for their next-door neighbours, the Maddhatters club/pub operation in near-ish downtown Grande Prairie, Alberta. This 355ml can (supertitled, the ‘Roman God of Lager’ – ok) pours a clear, bright pale …

Some traditional brewing goodness from those up and comers, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/olds-college-old-skhool/
Old Skhool is an appropriately-named brew from this teaching school’s commercial arm in central Alberta. Nice to see these offerings showing up in more and more places around the province now. This 355ml can pours a clear, very dark reddish brown colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and mostly bubbly tan head, …

If you like Lemon Gin, check out this offering, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/bridge-brewing-lemon-gin-saison/
This is North Van’s Bridge Brewing’s current (I guess that means Spring?) seasonal, a Saison made with lemon and gin – I resolve to keep my panties unbunched and right where they belong. This 650ml bottle pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat creamy eggshell …

Time to scratch another one off the ol' bucket list, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/fernie-the-eldorado-single-hop-ipa/
This is the most recent (Spring 2016, A.D.) offering in the Fernie Brewing Company’s ‘Bucket List’ IPA series, made with ‘The Eldorado’ hops, and lemongrass to boot. This 650ml bottle pours a sort of hazy, medium golden amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, rocky, and sticky eggshell white head, which leaves some stellar bonsai-tree …

Alberta's elder craft brew statesman Big Rock ups their game, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/big-rock-citradelic-ipa/
Citradelic is a single hopped (with Citra, duh) IPA, first made in Big Rock’s Vancouver operation, but now being produced in six-packs for TOTAL CANADIAN DOMINATION, er, cross-country distribution. This 330ml bottle pours a hazy, dark bruised peach amber colour, with one flabby finger of puffy, weakly foamy, and somewhat bubbly ecru head, which leaves …
