Beer Description:
One of Quebec’s proudest sons, Jacques Plante (1929-1986) was among the first to play outside the crease and behind the net and to wear a mask as everyday equipment. “Jake the Snake” notched seven Vezina trophies and six Stanley Cups (all with Montreal) during 19 years of pro hockey. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1978. Released in June 2014, we have only made 12,300 bottles of this beer, available for a limited time at select LCBOs and as part of the Signature Series Club.

Tasting Notes

Wood aging take a non-traditional turn with this very special Imperial Pilsner. Ash wood (one of the woods from which hockey sticks are traditionally made) brings out the smoothness of Vienna Malt and the spicy bittering qualities of Columbus and Chinook hops.

The beer pours a brilliant dark golden colour yielding to nice white foam. The nose is citrus to start with tangerine as the lead aroma. Following closely behind is cantaloupe, apricot, and tropical fruit, with a honey finish. The body is sparkling and dry, revealing some subtle sweetness (honey) and egg bread and toast with just a hint of orange marmalade flavours. The finish is smooth and slightly lingering.
