The weather forecast is starting to heat up, but summer in the sand or by the pool still a ways away. To help combat our wanderlust the folks at Main St. Brewing has added some getaway-themed libations for your virtual vacay.
The first of the final two beers in the Mount Pleasant brewery’s vacation-themed series, Hula Hula Shake is now on tap, and shelves. A Berliner Weisse-styled, sherbet-y slammer combines fresh passionfruit, orange and guava purée with subtle hints of vanilla and is soured just enough to make drinkers purse their lips and shake their hips to tropical rhythms.
In mid-May, Main St. will release the final beer in the series — a Poolside hazy IPA that offers an ideal way to wind down, chill out and take one last glimpse of a palm-tree paradise from the swim-up bar courtesy of a rich, smooth and juicy IPA that packs a mango- and tropical fruit-forward hoppy punch.
While the other three beers in the series — February’s Departure Lounge hibiscus grisette, March’s Ocean View black lime lager and May’s Poolside hazy IPA — were offered on a limited-time-only, while-supplies-last basis, Hula Hula Shake will keep us your hips swaying throughout the summer as it stays on tap and in cans at Main St. and local stores throughout the season.
Hula Hula Shake will be available on tap on the Main St. patio and in 473-ml cans and four-packs in the Main St. retail store (261 East Seventh Ave.) as well as in select BC Liquor stores and private stores. In accordance with the latest updated provincial health and safety protocols, the Main St. tasting room will remain closed until at least Monday, April 19, while the patio and retail store will remain open seven days a week from noon to 10 p.m. You can also start your weekend safely and sip at home with pick-up and delivery also available via Skip The Dishes and Uber Eats .
