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.

From the river valley to your glass, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/alley-kat-spruce-almighty/
Spruce Almighty is the first in line of Alley Kat’s new ‘Back Alley Brews’ series, wherein they allow their brewer(s?) to do whatever it is that interests them. Here, that apparently means that they went into Edmonton’s river valley and plucked a near metric shit-ton of local spruce tips, to make this particular spruce beer …

Check out this fruity and tasty single hopped and um, single malted brew, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/whistler-unique-brew-smash/
Here we have another instance of Whistler Brewing’s Unique Brews series – this time it’s a SMaSH pale ale (Single Malt and Single Hop – and they don’t specify what either is). This 946ml stubbie quart bottle pours a slightly hazy, pale golden amber colour, with tons of puffy, rocky, and chunky off-white head, which …

A fruity and tart local seasonal offering, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/wild-rose-rare-peach-apricot-berliner-weisse/
This is Wild Rose’s Summer 2016 Rare Series release – a kettle-soured Berliner Weisse, with Galaxy hops and ‘loads of’ peaches and apricots. Just missing the ol’ kitchen sink, eh? The label indicates that it was ‘released into the Wild’, um, today – June 23, 2016. The 650ml bottle pours a very murky, pale whitish-yellow …

A very pleasing kettle sour brew, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/blindman-kettle-sour-3/
It’s gotta be said, we at the Beer Diaries have taken a liking to Blindman Brewing’s kettle sour series, and now, they’ve gone full experimental with this one (I’ll miss you, Mosaic!), employing the hop varieties #06277 and #07270 – oh, how sexy – robot style. This 355ml can pours a hazy, pale yellow straw …

Cherries and raspberries certain remind me strongly of this season, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/big-rock-cherazz/
Cherazz is one of Big Rock’s summer seasonal offerings in the Alberta market, and is a Belgian-style fruit beer, made with cherries and raspberries, hence the portmanteau name. This 650ml bottle pours a dark, murky dishwater ruddy amber hue, with a teeming tower of puffy, tightly foamy, and fizzy light pink head, which renders some …

Fruit?  Check.  Wheat?  Check.  Alcohol?  Ummmm... in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/paulaner-weizen-radler-non-alcoholic/
The Bavarian brewer Paulaner has released this offering, which is a mix of two summertime beer staples (wheat beer and radler), all with less than 0.5% ABV, for anyone that is looking for such an option. This 330ml bottle pours a murky, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat …

Check out this fruit-adorned German-style lager, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/village-squeeze-lemon-berry-helles/
Calgary’s Village Brewery has released this purported Munich Helles lager made with lemon and raspberries, for the summer of 2016, in collaboration with Fiasco Gelato. This 473ml can pours a crystal clear, bright salmon-tinged, and very pale golden yellow colour, with one zaftig finger of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves …

Some island-friendly seasonal brew, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/black-market-deception/
SoCal’s Black Market Brewing provide this fruit-enhanced summer offering – you put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up! No, I’m not going to spin any Baha Men in the background right now! This 22oz bottle pours a clear, bright medium golden amber colour, with three fat fingers of puffy, finely foamy, …

Some tasty fruit brew from the American south, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/back-forty-paw-paws-peach-wheat/
The Back Forty Beer Co. comes to us from Gadsden, Alabama, and they make this peach-flavoured wheat, um, I’m gonna say ale, which serves as their spring/summer seasonal. This 1L howler pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with a near-teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some random sudsy …

It's the longest day of the year - what are you doing?  Check out the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/yukon-longest-day-white-ipa/
Yukon Brewing may have the best vantage point for Canadian brewers to observe the excess daylight inherent in the longest day of the year, which is commemorated in this offering, and occurs tonight, to my surprise, as I always thought that the summer solstice fell on the 21st of June. Anyways, this is an IPA …

Some German-style dark brew from Banff, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/banff-ave-brewing-lower-bankhead-black-pilsner/
Lower Bankhead is this brewery’s take on the schwarzbier, a German style where a lager is made with darker roasted malt, rendering a brew which is more, well, ‘black’ in nature. We shall see. This 650ml bottle pours a clear, dark red-brick amber colour, with one flabby finger of puffy, tightly foamy, and somewhat rocky …

Some Alberta culture to go with your IPA, in the Beer Diaries Local Heroes Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/banff-ave-brewing-head-smashed-ipa/
Head Smashed IPA is touted as this brewery’s flagship beer, and is purportedly made in the English style. The name is an ode to the Unesco World Heritage Site located in deep southern Alberta – Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. So why not Head-Smashed-In IPA? This 650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with …
