Uncle Buma’s Heritage Ale
This pale, lightly hoppy ale is straw-coloured with moderate haze. The aroma is a combination of bready malt and earthy, herbal hops. It has light-moderate bitterness. The flavor matches the aroma with lightly floral and earthy hops, bready malt punctuated with gentle grain notes. It finishes quite dry. Our accountant’s uncle grew the heritage barley used by Canada Malting to create the malt used in this beer. We lovingly call our accountant Uncle Buma, thus the name for this beer.
This crisp, session ale is a hazy, yellow color. It displays a subtle spicy aroma with hints of clove. It has low bitterness, balanced spicy fruit notes, and a restrained but accumulating tart finish created by multiple infusions of rhubarb. This is the first collaboration between our head chef and head brewer to create a beer with common ingredients between the kitchen and brewery.
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.
This crisp 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 session-strength ale is a hazy, rich gold color, with aromas of pepper and stonefruit. It displays very low bitterness, with flavours of apricot, clove, and light doughy malt. It has a surprisingly fully body and finishes very dry. SPF 3.82 was the result of a Brewer for a Day auction for the Win4Skin charity supporting skin cancer research. For each serving one dollar is donated to Win4Skin.
This highly-hopped, cloudy wheat ale is a straw color, with aromas of menthol and ripe fruit. It displays medium bitterness, with flavours of banana and herbal mint. It finishes dry, with lingering spicy bitterness. Whoops was a happy accident where our brewers created a hoppy wheat beer instead of the milder beer they had planned because of an unexpected ingredient change.
Yen ’til Two

This hop forward brew puts forth strong grapefruit and citrus pith flavours with a clean bitterness. Dark gold in colour with a lasting white head, the bitterness of this ale is accentuated by its dry finish.
