Blood Alley Bitter

I’m not sure if it’s the darkly alluring title, the bold red hues or the pig and how it calls to mind charcuterie and other such farm-chic trends, but Blood Alley Bitter seems to hit all the right notes with us at The Urban Grocer. Handcrafted naturally in small artisanal batches, this one-of-a-kind bottle can be found a-brewin’ outside of Vancouver, BC.

Its namesake comes from an infamous and likely mythical alley in Vancouver’s Gastown that is similarly a-brew with tales of butchery, blood, and murder. But don’t be deceived, this beer’s relation to the grim legend of Blood Alley lies only in its style. As an Extra Special Bitter at a whopping 50 IBUs (that’s bitterness units for you winos), this brew is not for the faint-hearted or queasy-stomached. So if you can get your hands on it, and you’re not afraid of a little blood — I mean, bitterness — then get drinking because this one is a limited edition.
