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.

Berliner Weisse

Canatara!

4.7 %% alc./vol. — 8.7 ibu

Sarnian folklore tells us that locals so energised by the turn of season from winter to summer would shout "Canatara!" as a popular form of summer greeting. Canatara is a beloved local beach and excellent place to view warblers, sandpipers, ducks and falcons. It's also now a complex, slightly acidic, wheat based ale brewed with the perfect balance of sour and sweet. So we raise a glass to you and shout "Canatara!"

$5.50 / $7 $6 $16
American Amber

Suburban Menace

5.7% alc./vol. — 38 ibu

This sneaky little bastard is red in colour and has a body balanced slightly more towards malt than hops. Featuring caramel and toffee flavours alongside hints of blueberry and bubble gum, it’s a guaranteed slingshot to your mouth.

$6 / $7.50 $8
Raspberry Wheat Ale

Pinky Brewster

5.5% alc./vol. — 25 ibu

The Brewster is a hefeweizen with a twist of tart raspberry that comes right up front and coats the palate through the entire beer. So get ready to pucker up to the Pinky!

$5 / $6.50 $6 $14
Brouhaha label
Nut Brown

The Brouhaha

5.7% alc./vol. — 23 ibu

A good ole fashioned fisticuffs broke out between malt sweetness and mild earthy hops, resulting in a remarkably well balanced Brown Ale. It’s not too sweet and and not too bitter. Just a scrappy down to earth ale with a medium dry-finish. When the dust settles you will be left slacked jawed, stunned, and wanting more.

$5.50 / $7 $7 $16
Grapefruit IPA

Illiterate Librarians

6.1% alc./vol. — 70 ibu

Trying to find a copy of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code' with the 'help' of an illiterate librarian is a gosh darn nightmare. We recommend you order it on online and have it sent directly to the brewery. We will have a refreshing pint of grapefruit infused IPA waiting for you and we can put this whole debacle behind you.

$5.5/7 $7
California Common

Kevin

5% alc./vol. — 40 ibu

This pleasant 5% California Common (or Steam Beer) is moderately hopped, mildly fruity, and has a light malt character. It's unique and well-balanced, with notes of brown sugar, toasted biscuits, nuts and bread preceding a leafy, grassy hop finish. In terms of Kevin Costner's body of work think more Dances with Wolves and less Waterworld.

$5.5 / $7 $6 $16
Australian Pale Ale

Pouch Envy

5% alc./vol. — 20 ibu

This little ripper is similar to an APA, yet oh so different. The secret? Easygoing Australian "Galaxy" hops, with notes of peach, passionfruit, and citrus and tons of hops aroma. Why spend 26 hours flying to Oz, when we can bring Oz directly to your mouth.

$5 / $6.50 $7 $16
Cream Ale

Troll Toll

5% alc./vol. — 18 ibu

Troll Toll pays homage to the Blue Water Bridge and the many goats that have mysteriously disappeared while making the long voyage across. It's a light and refreshing ale, pale straw in colour. Similar to a classic American lager, but slightly stronger in maltiness, hop character and faint fruit flavours.

$5.50/$7 $8
she's german label
Oktoberfest

She’s German

4.6% alc./vol. — 20 ibu

Ahhhh, good ol' October. The perfect month for wearing jeans, meeting that special someone, and drinking delicious Oktoberfest beer. Introducing our newest seasonal She's German, a slightly malty, bitter ale that will send you into a polka fit. So throw on those Levis and head to Refined Fool, cause she's waiting for you... (Don't worry ladies, 'he' is probably here too.)

$5 / $6.50
Joe Sent Me label
Milk Stout

Joe Sent Me

5.2% alc./vol. — 27 ibu

Who knew that humble dark roasted grains would lead to flavours of coffee and chocolate, and aromas of caramel and roasted malt? It’s so darn creamy and smooth, with a surprising sweet finish. So come to the brewery and whisper "Joe Sent Me" to the bartender...it won't be weird at all.

$6.50 $7 $18
Short Pier, Long Walk label
Double IPA

Short Pier, Long Walk

8.4% alc./vol. — 100+ ibu

Time to get philosophical. Ever imagine coming to the end of a pier and wishing it just kept going? This is the same existential worm hole you will fall down when drinking this Double IPA. So go on, take one step further, one more sip. Allow the calm and clean tasting malt backbone to give way to a maelstrom of hops (Simcoe, Centennial, Columbus) that are rich, earthy and devastatingly tasty.

$5.50 / $7 $7 $16
Antique Peepshow label
IPA

Antique Peepshow

6.1% alc./vol. — 70 ibu

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. This IPA is high on hop bitterness, with a surprising and delicate mild caramel backbone. Slightly sweeter than it it’s contemporaries, it’s an IPA that marches to the beat of it’s own drum. So stop peeping and drink it, because you’re creeping everybody out.

Ripsnorter label
Vanilla Porter

Ripsnorter

8.7% alc./vol. — 37 ibu

The Ripsnorter is a truly complex beast. It’s packed with flavour, 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 flavour. Rich, full bodied and dark. This is a bruiser of a Porter.

Beer.

It's why god gave you a mouth.
