Explore Canada West
Spruce tips were added to a specially brewed dark wheat ale for a collaboration with our friends from Flannel Foxes. Want to Explore Canada West? Well, what better way than to taste it in your beer? The spruce tips add herbaceous sweetness to this dark ale and blend with characteristic banana and spice notes to create a delicious fall beer.
The Mimic is a Quick Turn Mixed Fermentation beer, fermented in stainless steel tanks for 4 months. Our use of the traditional turbid mashing process lends it full texture and flavour, while having a very low alcohol content. It is fermented with a special blend of Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. This unique blend of organisms gives bright citrus and tropical fruit flavours and aromas, balanced by a round texture and medium acidity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
