Local Pale Ale 2
2017 Extra Strong Ale (Bottle Only)
IPA (6.5% ABV, 60 IBU, 5.5 SRM,15.3 OG,3.3 FG)
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, 12.0 OG, 3.2 FG)
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!
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. Try paring it with hearty, beef-based pub style food or anything roasted.
LOCAL PALE ALE (5.1% ABV, 32 IBU, 11 SRM, 12.4 OG, 2.6 FG)
CREAM ALE (4.8% ABV, 24 IBU)
This straw-coloured, unfiltered cream ale has a smooth body and creamy head. Clean and refreshing with a dry, crisp finish. Try pairing it with anything light or creamy.
SPRING (4.8% ABV, 25 IBU, 23 SRM, 11.6 OG, 2.7 FG)
A dark German lager with mild roasted yet exceptionally smooth malt flavours, balanced with a moderate bitterness.
STOUT (6.0% ABV, 43 IBU) Now available in cans!
Brewed with locally-roasted coffee and fair trade cocoa nibs. Roasted coffee dominates the aroma and flavour with subtle chocolate richness in the body. Try pairing it with well-aged cheese, chocolate, or anything salty.
BELGIAN TRIPEL (9.5 %ABV, 35 IBU, 4 SRM, 19.5 OG, 3.1 FG)
2017 EXTRA STRONG ALE (bottles only) (10.2 %ABV, 30 IBU, 30 SRM, 20.3 OG, 3.9 FG)
A bottle conditioned Belgian-style strong ale with hints of molasses and dried fruit.
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.
