Our unfiltered Fall wheat beer has a beautiful amber hue. Its subtle banana and spice character is balanced with dried fruit aromatics and flavour. Our inspiration for this beer was found on a trip to southern Germany to visit our brewhouse supplier.
Brewed in honour of one of our assistant brewers, this smooth dark lager has chocolate wafer, cola, and dark cherry notes both in the aroma and flavour. It has low bitterness and finishes very clean and dry. It deftly walks the line between satisfying sipper, and crushable lager.
Union Bhoys Lager
Union Bhoys Lager was brewed in celebration of the soccer team in Brussels, Belgium: Union St-Gilloise. This lager was brewed with both wheat and barley, giving it a hazy yellow colour. It has floral and melon fruit aromatics, with clean malt, honey dew, and lychee flavours followed by a dry, lightly bitter finish.
This clean lager has a bright gold colour with a heavy floral aroma of honeysuckle. The low bitterness lends itself to a honey like flavour with a crisp finish. Rob’s best friend from Germany, Fabian, designed this beer and helped us install our brewhouse. You’re a legend brü.
This bright copper lager combines bold stone-fruit notes with complex herbal hopping and balanced bitterness. It finishes dry with lingering herbal and fruit flavors. This beer received a Gold Medal at the 2018 Alberta Brewing Awards.
Songe d’une Prairie Sauvage
This collaboration with our friends from Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel! is a turbid mashed lager, fermented in Spanish red wine barrels then conditioned with Brettanomyces for 8 months. This process results in floral, honey character, with over ripe fruit and light Brettanomyces notes. It picks up subtle wine fruitiness and tannin from the barrels and finishes with a delicate tart acidity.
This collaboration between Strathcona Spirits Distillery and Blind Enthusiasm Brewing started with a Cognac puncheon shipped from France. After some clever bartering Strathcona Spirits ended up with the puncheon and Blind Enthusiasm got 5 freshly emptied Pinot Gin barrels in return. Things got kooky when we put our Uncharted Citra into the Pinot Gin barrels. The result is a delicious golden beer with a herbal and orange citrus attack followed by a balanced blast of gin. It finishes with lingering overripe fruit. We hope you like it.
Extra Special Monk Lager
This is the lager version of mainstay Extra Special Monk ale. It combines the flavours of the ESM with the smoothness of a lager. It is a pale, hoppy lager with tropical aroma and flavours, low-medium bitterness, and a dry finish.
Yen ’til Two
This special beer is named after a close friend of the brewery. It is a delicate, fruity ale with lemon zest and pineapple aromas with matching flavor, and a crisp, dry finish with a gentle kiss of bitterness.
Fruitful Pursuits: Plum
The Fruitful Pursuits Series is made in late summer when ripe fruit is in season and at peak quality. For 2019 Plum we used hundreds of kilograms of freshly harvested Damson and President Okanagan plums which stayed on this mixed-ferment blend for 2 months. The result is bright ruby-purple colour, very prominent plum character, and a medium-high acidity.
Un Petit Peu
Un Petit Peu (Translation “A Little Bit”) is the first offering in our Dry Hop Series. This blend of one year old mixed-ferment barrels was lightly dry hopped with the French hops Mistral and Barbe Rouge. The unique hops impart red berry aroma and flavor to this bright, light acidity beer. We hope you like it.
El Dorado Reposado
What happens when we add one of our favorite hop varieties (El Dorado) to a crisp, fruity beer aged in fresh Tequila barrels for 10 months then blended with a small amount of fresh beer? You get El Dorado Reposado, an astonishing amalgam of agave, hop oils, and alpha acids. This barrel-aged beer walks an amazingly fine line between boozy tequila, patio sipper, and complex quaff. We hope you like it.
