Smooth Operator

8.7% ABV

Occasionally a beer names itself, and this was the case with Smooth Operator. As a big, brown ale aged in Port barrels for 24 months we were a little surprised how easy-drinking it was, even though it clocks in at 8.7% ABV. The very first suggested name, Smooth Operator, was unanimously approved. This recipe uses a wide range of dark malts which play nicely off the red fruit and tannin from the Port barrels. The final beer is a delightful amalgam of red wine, chocolate, and cola notes with a clean, dry finish. We hope you like it.

Lager O’Darkness

4.0% ABV

Selected as Canada's best dark lager in the 2021 World Beer Awards, Lager O’Darkness is our homage to the classic light-bodied dark beer. We put our lager twist on it and walk the line between easy drinkability and rich maltiness. It is black in color with high clarity, low bitterness, and notes of dark chocolate and toasty malt. Believe it or not, this is a great patio beer.

Kook Birds Lager

7.2% ABV

The second version of Kook Birds is a participant in our Lagerization Project. Instead of using an ale yeast this batch of Kook Birds was brewed as a lager with our Uncharted Citra recipe. As with the original beer we collaborated with our kooky pals over at Strathcona Spirits and aged this beer in their Pinot Gin barrels for 24 weeks. The result is fruity and herbal with bold gin character. This version is sharper and more direct than the first release thanks to its Lagerization Project origins. We hope you like it.

The Mimic

3.3% ABV

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

7% ABV

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.

Come ACME BRO

Testo

5.1% ABV

Collaborating with our pals from High Dough was a very special experience. We take both beer and pizza very seriously. Our creation, Těsto, is a crispy lager made from Czech malt and hops with a tropical twist from a hop named Southern Passion. Těsto’s gentle bitter bite and light biscuity malt are the perfect complement to High Dough’s amazing pizza.

Zesty Zee

4.2% ABV

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.

Mentis Oculi

6.1% ABV

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.

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.

Düncan

5.0% ABV

Brewed in honour of one of our former 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.
