GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB & VICTORIA, BC – Two breweries in Western Canada have coincidentally announced the release of new beers developed using artificial intelligence.
Grain Bin Brewing in Grande Prairie has released Amber Waves of Grain American Amber Ale (5.8% abv), which was “designed entirely by Artificial Intelligence, from recipe inception through label design and media release” – the latter reading as follows:
Introducing Amber Waves of Grain, a deliciously smooth amber beer that’s sure to please your palate. Made with the finest ingredients, this beer boasts a rich amber colour and a perfect balance of sweet malt and floral and citrus hops. And just when you think if can’t get any better, you’ll detect a subtle hint of chocolate that rounds out the flavour profile perfectly. The unique label, featuring an amber-hued wave of grain, was created with AI, as was this very description. So raise a glass of Amber Waves of Grain and taste the future of beer-making today!
Amber Waves of Grain is officially launching today (February 21st) at the Grain Bin taproom and retail store, with all purchases this week including a three-pack of AI-designed promotional stickers while supplies last.
Out in Victoria, Whistle Buoy Brewing asked ChatGPT to create a “hazy pale ale, fluffy and tropical”, and it responded with “a full recipe that actually made sense.” The recipe was brewed, and released last week as Robo Beer Hazy Pale Ale (5.2% abv), which has the following AI-created description:
This hazy pale ale is a masterpiece of modern brewing techniques, using a combination of pale ale malt, wheat malt, and flaked oats to create a soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Bursting with tropical flavors and aromas from a generous dose of Mosaic, Citra, and El Dorado hops, this beer is a juicy, refreshing treat. With a moderate alcohol content and a smooth finish, Robo Beer is perfect for enjoying any time of year. Whether you’re a craft beer aficionado or a newcomer to the scene, our AI-generated Robo Beer is sure to impress. Give it a try and taste the future of brewing!
Robo Beer is available now at the Whistle Buoy taproom, retail store, and online shop.
