Charming Or Tedious

<p>To &nbsp;mark &nbsp;Yukon Brewing's &nbsp;20th &nbsp;anniversary &nbsp;which &nbsp;coincides &nbsp;with &nbsp; Canada&rsquo;s &nbsp;150th, &nbsp;Yukon &nbsp;Brewing &nbsp;will &nbsp;be &nbsp;releasing &nbsp;a &nbsp;&ldquo;20th &nbsp;Anniversary &nbsp;-&shy; &nbsp;Canada &nbsp;150 &nbsp;Series&rdquo; &nbsp;of &nbsp;Limited &nbsp; Edition &nbsp;brews.&nbsp;Commencing &nbsp;January &nbsp;2017, &nbsp;there &nbsp;will &nbsp;be &nbsp;a &nbsp;different &nbsp;Limited &nbsp;Edition &nbsp;650 &nbsp;mL &nbsp;bomber &nbsp;released &nbsp;each &nbsp; month. &nbsp;Six &nbsp;forgotten &nbsp;favourites &nbsp;and &nbsp;six &nbsp;brand &nbsp;new &nbsp;brews.</p> <p>A Wee Heavy is an example of a Scotch Ale (not to be confused with a Scottish Ale, which is different). The beer is very malt forward, comprised of six different malted grains, including some peated malt for a delightful smoky character. The Hop bitterness is nearly imperceptible and is&nbsp;a deep copper coloured brew. Yukon Brewing &nbsp;enhanced the natural caramel character &mdash; which comes from a long boil in the kettle to caramelize the wort &mdash; with 40kg&nbsp;of genuine maple syrup shipped in from Ontario, which gives the beer a sweet smoothness that belies the 7.3% abv.</p> <p>The name &ldquo;Charming or Tedious&rdquo; is inspired by Oscar Wilde&rsquo;s work&nbsp;<em>Lady Windermere&rsquo;s Fan.&nbsp;</em>Wilde&nbsp;was known for his love of of a good drink and he had often said that&nbsp;&ldquo;drink is the curse of the writing classes.&rdquo; While in Scotland he developed a great love for whisky&nbsp;while writing this book. The smoky, peaty character of this brew, gives it a great &nbsp;likeness to its cousin whisky and Wilde&rsquo;s quote caught our eye &ldquo;It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.&rdquo; Because just like people, Yukon Brewing hates to divide beers.</p>
