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
Left turns are for the wild. Left turns are for the misfits and weirdos. This left turn is what happens when a Masala chai does some yoga. It’s a creme stout, dark in colour, bold in flavour and weighty on the pallet. It’s one dirty downward left-facing dog.
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!" Now offering Canatara with guava. Available in growlers and by the glass.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A moderately-strong English ale where the balance between malt and hops along with perfect drinkability makes this Extra Special Bitter a beverage that will bring serenity but unfortunately not help with your blood pressure.
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.
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.
Murder of Crows
Make a beer with tons of hops and extra dark roasted malts, you say? Sure, why not?! Meet the Murder of Crows, a Black IPA that will knock you into the darkest midnight.
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.
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.
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.
It's why god gave you a mouth.
