IPA (6.5% ABV, 60 IBU, 5.5 SRM, OG 15.3P, FG 3.3P)

IPAs, short for India Pale Ales, were traditionally stronger, highly hopped versions of British ales made to survive the long voyage to India. The British troops stationed in India became accustomed to these ales, and upon returning home wanted the local brewers to make more of these India Pale Ales.

Our IPA is a light blonde colour with a slightly malty backbone balanced by a smooth bitterness, and accentuated by refreshing citrus and tropical notes of North American hops.

Try pairing this IPA with big, bold tasting foods like an Indian curry, some spicy fajitas, a nice chunk of well grilled meat, or a rich chocolate cake.

AMBER (4.8% ABV, 30 IBU, 17 SRM, OG 12.0P, FG 3.2P)

North American amber ales originated on the west coast, and are maltier, less bitter versions of their pale cousins. Our amber ale is ruby red, with an emphasis on an enticing combination of caramel, toffee, biscuit, bread, and malt notes, perfectly balanced with a touch of North American hop character.

Our AMBER has great versatility when pairing with food. Try it with anything! Pizza, hearty soups, barbeque, grilled cheese, seafood , chicken, or anything else!


AMERICAN WHEAT (4.7% ABV, 20 IBU, 3 SRM)

This straw coloured and hazy beer starts off with a light bready aroma that carries over to the flavour. The soft breadiness gives way to a pleasant yet subtle dry hopped character. The light bitterness leads to a medium body and a crisp finish.


BROWN ALE (4.6% ABV, 21 IBU, 18 SRM) 

Light brown in colour, this smooth and creamy brown ale has strong flavours and aromas of chocolate, biscuit and toasted malts. The robust malt body is balanced by a subtle bitterness. With a medium body and moderate carbonation, this brown ale remains very sessionable.

AUTUMN ALE (5.5% ABV, 26 IBU)

This smooth, copper-coloured Oktoberfest-style beer has a smooth maltiness finished with German noble hops for a clean, crisp finish.

PUMPKIN ALE (5% ABV, 18 IBU)

Brewed with real pumpkin, our pumpkin ale is an orange colour with a subtle aroma of warming spices, light biscuit & honey notes. An early fall treat for when the leaves start to turn.


CREAM ALE (4.8% ABV, 24 IBU)

This straw-coloured, unfiltered cream ale has a smooth body and creamy head.

WINTER ALE (7.0% ABV, 32 IBU, 15 SRM, 16.1 OG, 3.5 FG)

This seasonal, spiced ale combines flavours of toffee, honey, and toasted malts with the warming aroma of ginger, cinnamon and orange.

STOUT (6.0% ABV, 43 IBU)

Brewed with locally-roasted coffee and fair trade cocoa nibs. Roasted coffee dominates the aroma and flavour with subtle chocolate richness in the body.


SPRING (4.8% ABV, 25 IBU)

A dark German lager with mild roasted yet exceptionally smooth malt flavours, balanced with a moderate bitterness.

COCONUT BLACK IPA (collaboration with Sawdust City Brewing Co.) (7.7% ABV, 71 IBU)

Brewed with toasted coconut and Mosaic & El Dorado hops, the coconut gives a creaminess to the body and head of the beer, balanced by the fruity aroma of the hops. Tropical!


ALTBIER (5.0% ABV, 34 IBU,12 SRM, 12.1 OG, 2.7 FG)

German malts, hops and the water profile of Dusseldorf were used to make a traditional, true to style Altbier. This copper-coloured, top-fermented ale has the crispness of its lager cousins and is a great gateway into craft beer for lager drinkers.


Why use cans?

The three enemies to packaged beer are sunlight, oxygen, and heat. Both cans and bottles can be heated, so they are equal there. Cans, however, are 100% impermeable to sunlight and the double-crimped seal around a can lid is much better at keeping out oxygen than a bottle cap. This makes for a beer that stays fresher, longer.

But... why use cans?

Cans are better for the environment. They are lightweight, which means lower transport emissions. They are also fully recyclable, unlike glass which is often crushed and used to build roads. Don't get us wrong, we love roads. We just love beer more. Cans are also more portable and safer than bottles. And more fun to crush on your head. And they make that awesome sound when you open them.
