Cloudy and magenta in color, this fruit ale has clove and red berry aromas, low bitterness, juicy, cranberry flavor with a tart, dry finish. Our base beer, SPF 3.82, sat on 33 kg of Haskap berries, and 9 kg of red Gooseberries to create the light acidity and bold color.
DEB’s Wet Hop Ale
This wet hop ale is a cloudy amber color. It has aromas of subtle stonefruit and toasty malt. The flavor has medium bitterness with flavors of grilled grapefruit and melon. It finishes with herbal juicy notes. We used whole cone Golding hops from the Northern Girls Hopyard (just an hour away) as a variation on our usual recipe for DEB, resulting in a surprisingly complex flavor profile.
This highly hopped ale is light amber in colour, displaying earthy aromas with a hint of burnt orange, spice and juniper berries. The flavor displays high bitterness, and has soft notes of pine and grapefruit peel in its clean, bitter finish. The name URB comes from the hops BRU-1, one of the two main hops in this beer (along with Columbus). Bru-1 is a new, fairly experimental hop from Oregon. Greg and Doug met the farmer, Bill Brulotte, that bred this hop a few years ago at the Craft Brewers Conference in Portland.
This dark ale is deep brown in color, medium-bodied, with a combination of rich chocolate and subtle fruit notes. Dark chocolate blends into raisins, dried cherries, and red currants for a surprisingly dry finish.

For each serving one dollar is donated to Win4Skin.
