More Info/Tasting notes on our currently available beers:

Summer Pale Ale (5.0% ABV) 30 IBU (NE Style American Pale Ale)

This beer is made to be hazy in the Vermont/Northeastern style through a combination of a high percentage of wheat and oats, as well as a London ale yeast strain. A combination of Simcoe, Mosaic, and Hallertau Blanc gives this beer flavours of peach, white grape and grapefruit peel.  

Malts/Grains: Canadian 2-row, Canadian Wheat, Honey Malt, English Oats, Toasted Wheat Flakes

Hops: Simcoe, Mosaic, Hallertau Blanc

Yeast: Foggy London Ale

Papaya Sour (5.0% ABV) 2IBU (Kettle Sour w/Fruit)

Our latest kettle sour is jam packed with yellow papaya puree for a massive fruiting rate of 1.5 lbs/gal. Intense tropical papaya aroma is followed by cracker-like malt character and a clean sweet/sour finish. Sweetness from the papaya balances the acidity from the base beer to make a super drinkable and flavourful sour.

Malts: Belgian Pilsner, Canadian Wheat, English Oats, Canadian 2-row

Hops: Chinook

Yeast: Escarpment Lacto Blend, Foggy London Ale

Autumn IPA (6.5% ABV) 45 IBU (American IPA)

Our newest IPA features a combination of US Amarillo hops and Australian Enigma hops for notes of apricot, red berry and a hint of pine. We combine Canadian and English malt base malt for additional malt complexity, as well as a touch of caramel malt to give a slightly amber hue as well as a touch of sweetness.

Malts: Canadian 2-row, English Golden Promise Malt, Canadian Wheat Malt, English Oats, English Medium Caramel

Hops: Chinook, Amarillo, Enigma

Yeast: Foggy London Ale

Other: Papaya Puree
 

Autumn Pale Ale ( 5.7%ABV) 30 IBU (American Pale Ale)

This pale ale features a blend of Australian and American hops, this time featuring US Simcoe and AU Vic Secret. This beer pours a hazy light amber colour and has an intense pineapple aroma and the flavour follows with tropical fruit salad and a hint of pine on the finish. The base malt is 100% premium English Golden Promise to give this beer a slightly more substantial malt character and a small amount of caramel malt gives some colour and a hint of toffee flavour.

Malts: English Golden Promise, Canadian Wheat, English Oats. English Light/Medium Crystal

Hops: Chinook,  Simcoe, Vic Secret

Yeast: Foggy London Ale
 

Still Drei (7.2% ABV) 57 IBU (Brett IPA/ Farmhouse IPA)

This brettanomyces fermented IPA features a unique blend of new and old world hops for a complex blend of herbal old world hop character mixed with tropical and citrus new world hop character. It was primary fermented with London ale yeast and secondary fermented for a couple of months with Brett.

Malts: Canadian 2 row, Canadian Wheat, Canadian Wheat Flakes, English Oats, German Rye Malt, Honey Malt

Hops: Chinook, Citra, Amarillo, Loral, Crystal

Yeast: Foggy London Ale, Brett Brux var. Drei

Rakau Wet Hop Pale Ale (5.8 ABV) 37 IBU (American Pale Ale)

A seasonal one-off, our Rakau Wet Hop Pale Ale has an extreme hopping rate of about 10kg/hl or 25 lbs/bbl for an intense fresh hop character. The aroma has notes of freshly cut grass with some delicate floral and citrus notes. The flavour follows with some grapefruit and floral notes, and finishes clean. A high proportion of wheat adds to a pillowy mouthfeel. If you’re tired of very subtle and barely discernable hop character in wet hop beers, this one is for you.

Malts: Canadian 2-row, Canadian Wheat, English Light Crystal

Hops: Chinook, Ontario grown Rakau (from Tavistock Hop Farms)

Yeast: Foggy London Ale
