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.

IPA

What’s Your Christian Mingle Username?

5.5% alc./vol. — 65 ibu

@TheREALNebuchnezzar? @Goliath63? @Loaves_Fishes? A hearty dose of Citra hops leads to strong but balanced peach and tangerine flavours. At 65 IBU, this juicy tropical fluorescent-orange IPA is an ale of the thirsty masses.

$4/ $5 $6 $14
Lagered Ale

Dean’s Not Immune

5.7% alc./vol. — 38 ibu

This crisp, golden Lagered Ale is the perfect combination of flavour and drinkibility. Notes of biscuit and straw will greet you, followed by a clean, dry, and refreshing finish. And if you see Dean, just remind him he is still not immune. He will understand. Note: You will have to wrestle him after this conversation.

$6.50 / $8.00 $9
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!"

$6.00 / $7.50 $7.50 $17
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.

$5.50/ $7
Cream Ale

Blackberry Troll

5% alc./vol. — 18 ibu

Our original Troll Toll with a splash of Blackberry.

$6. / $7.5 $8
Vienna Lager

The Glistenator

5.0% alc./vol. — 25 ibu

Sporting a malty front and slightly bitter, hoppy finish, this sessionable amber lager is sure to be a huge hit at your next baby oil wrestling party. Get to glistenin'!

$7 $9
Apricot Habanero

Mexican Romance

7% alc./vol. — 70 ibu

A classic American IPA with a twist! Malty and citrusy, the hop bite of this sassy ale is rounded out by the spice and flavour of habaneros and juicy apricot. Complex like a telenovela.

$6.50 / $8 $9
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!

$6.50 $8 $18
Double IPA

That’s When Ted Fought the Mailman

8.0% alc./vol. — 100 ibu

Boasting with huge hop aroma and flavour, this malty, hazy dry-hopped Double IPA packs enough punch to knock your socks (or stamps) off.

$6.00 / $7.50 $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.

$6 / $7.50 $7.00 $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.

$5.50 / $7.00 $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.

$7.00 $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.

$6.00 / $7.50 $7.50 $17
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.

$7.00 $9.50 $18
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.

$7 $9
Noble Oaf label
Rye Saison

Noble Oaf

7% alc./vol. — 25 ibu

Whatever it is that goes on in Belgian farmhouses... it’s fruity and it’s spicy (something to do with esters and yeast). Some say the Oaf is citrusy and peppery, others cry slight tart sourness. We say its mild malt characteristics with moderate bitterness produce a very dry and noble finish.

$5.50 / $7.00 $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.

$5.50 / $7.00 $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.
