Check out what we've brewed in the past.

Chai Stout

Cincinnati Left

6.3%% alc./vol. — 33% ibu

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.

Black Ale

A Battery Of Barracudas

5.7% alc./vol. — 30 ibu

Just like the ferocious fish, this Black Ale looks a little funny and has a fearsome bite. The sweet and piny Simcoe hops give this beer a nice forward bite, but before you can say "Battery!" you will get a roasty, malty finish, which is why this beer has a surprisingly pitch black colour. At 5.7% this delicious winter ale is just the kind of beer to surprise attack your February blues.

Berliner Weisse

Pants

3% alc./vol. — 5 ibu

This is a German style beer from, you guessed it, Berlin. It's sour/tart, light, and really drinkable at only 3%. Great for summer! One thing that German's do is mix in flavoured syrups to create a nice balance between sweetness and tartness. Apparently, if you try to order it without syrup in Germany people think you're weird. Raspberry and Woodruff are the two syrups that are typically used, but we have a couple others to try out as well.

Cherry Heff

Captain Velour

5% alc./vol. — 10 ibu

American Wheat

She Throws Things

5%% alc./vol. — 15 ibu

Similar to our old favourite Centennial's Fence with some hop editions to provide a nice citrus finish.
A moderate wheat flavour that lingers to the finish and a nice malty sweetness make this a great start-of-Spring beer.
She Throws Things is an American Wheat that you shouldn't be tossing around.

Braggot

Mid-Life Spices

13% alc./vol. — 0 ibu

This traditional extra-strong English brew suffers from a bit of a split personality: part honey mead, part barley ale. With the addition of a boatload of spices with strange names like Grains of Paradise, Cardamom, and Long Pepper.

7.3% 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.
