Secret Wave (IPA- 6.2% ABV)

This beer was named after the very large dry hop it received by one of our favourite Australian hop varietals, Vic Secret. It also happened to be born during an unseasonable heat wave ripping across the province (thanks hurricane Harvey!)

Tasting Notes: The heavy dosing of Vic Secret gives this beer wave after wave of pineapple flavor and aroma backed up by notes of passion fruit and a medley of tropical/stone fruit. Low bitterness, silky smooth mouth feel, hazy and burnt orange in color. Drinks like fresh pineapple and passionfruit juice.

90’s Nostalgia (Pale Ale- 5.5% ABV)

We know we spend too much time together in the brew barn completing (or at least trying to complete) a baker’s dozen worth of tasks to produce our beer. Too much time together has inevitably lead us down some deep, dark, and obscure rabbit hole conversations; some of which we probably shouldn’t ever talk about again.

However, this particular one was about T-Rex boy from the “What’s your thing” PSA (if you’re Canadian and grew up in the 90’s, you should know it, it’s pretty friggin’ swell. Watch it here ); and whether or not he’s still rocking those bad-ass T-Rex sounds. We certainly hope so. In fact, we have also been practicing our T-Rex noises in the brew barn, and though we will never be able to claim it as our very own “thing,” we would still love to have a T-Rex off sometime. Let us know if you’re up for it, T-Rex Kid!

We make beer, what’s your thing?

Tasting Notes: Unfiltered and dry hopped, this beer features big notes of citrus and pine backed by flowery aromatics and impressions of grapefruit, mango, and earthy spice.

 Batch 3 Bootleg (Citra & Amarillo) (Hoppy Norwegian Farmhouse Ale – 6.1% ABV)

This Hoppy Norwegian Farmhouse Ale was the third batch of beer we ever made, and the first one we ever sold. Batch 1 was donated to family/friends for a couple of events (we didn’t deem it good enough for public sale/consumption); batch 2 was donated to the drain (probably shouldn’t have tried to get some delicious stressed yeast flavors on our second ever batch of beer); and batch 3 came out just right.

Tasting Notes: notes of citrus, fruit, orange peel, and papaya with a slight hint of spicy coriander. Smooth mouthfeel. Finishes dry. Very refreshing. Makes you want another sip.

 

Not Exactly the Shangri-La (Session IPA- 4.2% ABV)

This Session IPA is named after one of our biggest fans who decided to drop by for a beer before we were open; only to be disappointed by what he found… no beer and nothing remotely close to the mythical Himalayan utopia of Shangri-La.

Tasting Notes: Big notes of navel orange, citrus and pine. Hints of grapefruit that fade into a light lingering bitterness. Full bodied, but light and refreshing on the tongue. Hazy in appearance. Straw yellow in colour. A go to on a hot day by the pool side.

Batch 3 Bootleg (Cascade & El Dorado) (Norwegian Farmhouse Ale- 5.0% ABV)

This Hoppy Norwegian Farmhouse Ale was the third batch of beer we ever made, and the first one we ever sold. Batch 1 was donated to family/friends for a couple of events (we didn’t deem it good enough for public sale/consumption); batch 2 was donated to the drain (probably shouldn’t have tried to get some delicious stressed yeast flavors on our second ever batch of beer); and batch 3 came out just right.

We decided to turn this beer into a series after liking how the first one turned out. This version features dried orange peel, coriander and a heavy dry hop of Cascade and El Dorado. We also dropped the ABV to 5% for maximum drinkability on these final days of summer.

Tasting Notes: Distinct notes of melon and ripe tropical fruit backed by citrusy orange flavours and a touch of earthiness. Finishes dry. Very refreshing.

Distorted Re-Ale-Ity (Pale Ale- 5.3% ABV)

This is one of our favourite recipes at the brewery. It’s light, without being thin; juicy, without being cloying; and a bright hazy straw yellow in colour (it’s especially pretty when the sun hits it just right). Low bitterness, easy drinking. Yum.

Tasting Notes: Hazy, juicy and fruity. Notes of peach, berry, and citrus from a heavy dosing of Citra and Mosaic. Pillowy mouthfeel, full bodied.

Lumber For Ale (IPA- 7.3% ABV)

Did we trade beer for a sweet wood stained table? Yes, yes we did. This very beer was the one we exchanged in a true throwback to a time before currency; where things such as lumber and ale ruled supreme in transactional exchanges.

Tasting Notes: A massive dosing of citra, mosaic and simcoe give this beer distinct notes of citrus, pine, fruit, nectarine and berry.
