We make small batch craft beer in Sarnia, Ontario.
Refined Fool is a group of teachers, creatives, blue collars, entrepreneurs, musicians and pastors who care about beer, business, Sarnia and each other. We began by brewing out of our houses in midwinter with propane burners and frozen hoses and have since evolved into a downtown nano-brewery.Browse the brews
Say NO! To Rugs
Introducing Say No To Rugs, an 11.9% English Barleywine that is intense and complex in best sort of way. Pleasant fruit and toffee notes make this beast the perfect cold weather sipper, and as a bonus its great for aging. Just don't drink this beer while on rugs. Bad things will happen..
Then Bernice Flipped the Canasta Table
Settle in for a glass of this well-rounded East Coast DIPA. Featuring a variety of flavorful, fruity hops, this beer will surprise you with every cloudy sip.
Blackwater Breakfast Stout
Refined Fool and our friends at Blackwater Coffee & Tea Company, Sarnia's micro-roaster, have conceived what can only be described as a magical coffee/beer love child. It’s a stout fortified with coffee, chocolate, oatmeal and passion.
That’s When Ted Fought the Mailman
Boasting a huge hop aroma and flavour, this malty, hazy dry-hopped Double IPA packs enough punch to knock your socks (or stamps) off.
An IPA with some grapefruit.
Similar to an IPA, this pale ale is hopped with a rotation of Australian hop varieties. The result is an easy-drinking brew with a citrus/passionfruit aroma and hop flavor.
A Polish style, a very light smoked wheat beer. Uses oak smoked wheat malt, and Saaz hops.
A light and refreshing ale, pale straw in color. Similar to a classic American lager, but slightly stronger in maltiness, hop character, and faint fruit flavors from the use of an ale yeast.
Just like any good brouhaha this Nut Brown Ale gets out of control real quick. When the dust settles you will be left slacked jawed, stunned, and wanting more.
Moderate malt sweetness with caramel, toffee, and nutty notes. Medium dry-finish. Mild hop flavor (English style hops: earthy, spicy) with good balance between maltiness and hop bitterness. Mild fruity esters from the classic English ale yeast strain used.
Joe Sent Me
When prohibition was gripping North America, the phrase ‘Joe Sent Me’ was the universal code used to gain access into underground pubs. Use this same expression at Refined Fool to gain access into flavour country.
Dark roasted grains are the forefront of the beer, leading to coffee and chocolate flavors, along with some caramel and roasted malt notes. A heavy and creamy mouthfeel, in addition to a sweet finish due to the addition of lactose.
Drinking this fine beer will no doubt make you feel noble. Yet at the same time you will feel like an oaf for not having discovered it sooner.
Very fruity and spicy due to esters produced by the classic Belgian farmhouse yeast. Can be described as citrusy and peppery, with some slightly tart sourness. Mild malt characteristics, with moderate bitterness. Very dry finish.
Short Pier, Long Walk
Time to get philosophical. Ever imagine coming to the end of a pier and wishing it just kept going? This exact feeling will be exhumed when experiencing this Double IPA. So go on, take one step further, one more sip, miracles may just occur.
Large dry hop additions to this beer lead to the hop flavors leading the flavor with a clean tasting malt backbone which allows the hops to shine. The hop profile is rich and well balanced, and can be described as slightly piney earthy/spicy, floral and citrusy/grapefruity.
Have you ever peered into the window of an antique store and noticed an item that you had to possess? Well this beer is just that. So stop looking and drink it because you’re creeping everybody out.
Strong hop aromas from the large dry hop additions. The hops can be described as floral and citrus, and are at the forefront of the beer flavor. High hop bitterness with is well balanced with a mild caramel malt backbone, slightly sweeter than most others of this style.
A 'Ripsnorter' is defined as something remarkable for its strength, intensity, or excellence. In reference to our Ripsnorter Vanilla Porter, an emphatic YES! on all three counts.
Rich, full bodied, and dark. Lots of flavors going on here including hints of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, dried fruit, and chocolate. Well balanced vanilla, bourbon, and oak from the addition of fresh vanilla beans and bourbon barrel oak staves round out the intense flavor.
It's why god gave you a mouth.
