This variation of our Extra Special Monk Lager is made with African Queen and Southern Passion hops to give a twist on the usual tropical fruit notes. This hoppy lager has aromas of papaya and cantaloupe with flavours of lemon drops and honeydew melon. It's dry finish is accentuated by it’s present but smooth bitterness.
One Night in Dunham
This collaboration with our friends from Twin Sails Brewing started one fateful night in the town of Dunham. We were lodged together in a house on a hill, for Brasserie Dunham’s Foudres Unis festival. After sharing a few beers, the plan for this collab was hatched! We departed from our usual base wort, opting to include Cara Aroma and Munich malts. After fermenting for 16 months in Spanish red wine barrels the resulting blend has medium acidity, bright red fruit notes, light wine tannin, and a dry finish.
The original Nordlichter was a crushable light lager packed with flavour at a low ABV. In true mad scientist fashion we took a batch of Nord and put it into second-fill Pineau des Charentes barrels. Nordlichter Barrel-Aged retains the clean crushability of the original but is now punctuated with subtle red wine notes in the aroma and finish.
Come ACME BRO
Come ACME BRO results from the lagerization of fall-favourite BRO in collaboration with our best bro Corey from ACME Meat Market. What’s that building on the label you ask? It’s ACME’s 100 year old original location! We’re honored to bring back BRO’s smooth chocolate notes and dark fruit finish for this special Centennial Collaboration!
A couple years ago we did a collab with our pals at Brassneck in Vancouver. Hefteknik is our new take on that original collab. As before we made a beer with wheat and rye plus German yeast, and added some interesting hops (African Queen and Chinook). The result is lightly bitter, with banana notesbut also somemelon and spice.
Take a Charentes on Me
This amber ale made with Belgian yeast was put into fresh Pineau des Charentes barrels shipped straight from Bordeaux and aged for 14 months. It came out of the barrel at 8.1% ABV and transformed into a light brown beer with ruby highlights. It shows light oxidized notes, akin to a sherry, with aromas and flavours of dried fruit and brown sugar.
Let’s Not Rush
This robust, barrel-aged lager is light gold in color with a slight haze. It has aromas of Red Delicious apple & tangerine with a slight mustiness. It has a bright, cider-like flavour with notes of gooseberry and canned pineapple. LNR has low bitterness, medium carbonation, full body, surprisingly low booziness and a semi-dry finish. We didn’t rush with this beer; it sat in port barrels for two years until we felt it hit its peak. Don’t rush when you drink it; it’s a sipper, not a crusher.
ZestyZee, a German-style wheat ale, is our most popular summer beer. It is unfiltered with traditional banana and spice notes, low bitterness, crisp effervescence, and a gently tart, thirst quenching finish. Super-dry and quaffable, this is the ultimate patio beer.
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. This beer is bottle-conditioned.
Mentis Oculi is the second release in the Dry Hop Series. This blend of one and a half year mixed-ferment barrels is a collision of two worlds. Old World Tettnang and New World Simcoe, two wildly different hops, blend delightfully to dry hop this beer. The result is honey floral, ripe papaya, and light menthol hop character balanced by a full, round texture and medium-light acidity. We hope you like it.
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.
Uncharted Citra Lager
This assertively bitter lager is straw coloured and lightly hazy. Aromas of grapefruit pith are accentuated by the lingering bitter finish while complemented by flavours of lemon zest and orange. The crisp, dry finish of this lager is sure to quench your thirst even on the hottest day.
