We make 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 started out as a foolish bunch of backyard brewers using propane burners and frozen hoses and now we’re a real life microbrewery.Browse the brews

Finally, a kettle sour for all your home remedy needs. And if it helps you sleep at night, we can confirm that Vicky folds her metal duotang prongs in opposite directions.
Shirtless in the Back Pew
This bright and fruity golden beauty features subtle spicy notes and a dry finish. It was aged for 8 months in Cabernet Sauvignon and Baco Noir oak barrels from Dark Horse Winery and then blended.
A sessionable saison evoking the thirst-quenching farmhouse ales of old. As a bonus, it has the magical ability to halt the tantrums of nonsensical manchildren.
I’ll Have What Fran’s Having
This delicious complex Porter was brewed using almonds, peach, cinnamon, and vanilla. Follow Fran’s lead, she does Tai Chi.
Let us introduce “Waffle Thoughts” a Kettle Sour brewed with peach and mint that is charmed to make your acquaintance. This golden, hazy wonder is impeccably tart and bursting with thought-provoking flavour.
Rip. Zip. Skip.
A real juicy little number. You'll find a hop aroma of floral, tropical fruit and citrus-orange with a hint of a toasty and honey-like malt presence. Also, the name of this beer rhymes.
This 4.5% all-day lager is bright, crisp and refreshing. Bring it to the party and you will instantly vault over Craig on the coolness scale.
An extremely bright and approachable pale ale infused with a hearty dose of local honey. Tastes especially good before, during, and after Sting games, Sting concerts, and bee stings.
The Ugliest Parent
This easy drinking, approachable blonde ale is infused with tangy and tart Rosehip, and lemony-tart, berry-rich Hibiscus. The Ugliest Parent has a well-balanced and clean finish, with beautiful pinkish hues. So beautiful that you'll give up trying to decide if you are, in fact, the ugliest parent.
A cherry infused variant of our popular Cream Ale.
Gorgeous Giant Gets His Way
This SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) style beer has sweet yet robust malt flavours which act as a great backbone for the medley of berry aromas and tropical tasting notes that the hop addition provides.
This fruity, dry, and refreshingly tart ale is a liquid ode to summers spent at our beloved local park. It also answers the age old question: “What does Canatara Park taste like?” The answer, luckily, is not sand, bark, or goose turds. To everyone’s surprise, it’s actually passion fruit.
Shirtless at the Kremlin
This Russian Imperial Stout is our very first barrel aged beer. It was aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for 4 months and is packaged in limited edition ceramic 750mL bombers. You’ll enjoy roasted coffee notes blending with sweetness from the malt, all while effortlessly pleasing the palate with a boozy warmth. When you drink this beer you will feel like you are shirtless on a horse, galloping around Moscow.
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.
This hazy pink concoction balances raspberry tartness with a smooth dose of wheatiness to make a refreshing and delightfully drinkable beer. Best enjoyed with a bag of chips while rewatching 80’s sitcoms in your parent’s basement.
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.
You Are Lazy, Susan
'You Are Lazy, Susan' is a light and refreshing style of wheat beer known as a Rosemary Gose. Bright flavours, mildly sour and salty, with an added hint of lemon and rosemary. Available on tap, in bombers, and in growlers.
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.
Disclaimer: This beer will not actually satisfy the Troll. Attempt to offer it and you and/or your goat will likely be mercilessly mauled to death. Best paired with tacos.
Short Pier, Long Walk
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.
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.
Joe Sent Me
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.
