Dageraad keeps their Year Of Reign going with today’s release of “10°” Dark Quadruple

Burnaby’s Dageraad Brewing was named Brewery of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Brewing Awards, followed up with a near sweep of Strong Belgian Ale category at the BC Beer Awards last October. Their year of reign continues as they finally and successfully launch their “10°” Dark Quadruple today for Valentine’s Day. There’s love, and yeast, in the air.

Co-Founder Ben Coli is one of the brewers who has raised the profile of Belgian brewing styles in BC’s craft scene. We’re pleased that he’s put pen to paper to give us some insights on Dageraad in 2019. View our Community Spotlight below and here →
