This golden ale may share the color of many classic brews, but it sets itself apart with its unique flavor. The beer has a distinct tartness that will appeal to fans of experimental craft beer types.

'Cool Hand Cuke' is a cucumber sour ale that's been created as part of a collaboration between Hearthstone Brewery and West Coast Canning. As noted on the can, this beer was specifically created for the beer-sampling CanCity event in Vancouver, Canada that spotlights only "all craft, all canned" beer.

The expansion of global beer culture is creating demand for craft beer breweries to offer ultra-unusual flavors. Other experimental craft beer flavors produced by Hearthstone Brewery include a Chocolate Milk Stout and a Graham Cracker Ale.
