April 2019

A lot of different styles are on display this month. From strawberry wheat to passionfruit DIPA, this might just be our favourite curation yet! 4102ml.

7 unique breweries and 9 unique beers.


IPA - 6.5% abv. (Caledon)

CITERE - Brewed exclusively for our members, this IPA is a mash up of the deliciously melon forward Moutere and the tried and true citrus, mango dominant Citra. Together, Citere makes for a luscious treat of uniquely enticing New Zealand fruity character, backed by the delectable familiarity of American hop character. It tastes like a happy marriage between mango, melon, citrus and grapefruit. A fruity, polygamous delight.

Brett Saison aged in Chardonnay barrels - 8.0% abv. (St. Jacobs)

One of two versions of our annual The Thaw release. A saison fermented with brettanomyces, aged in white wine barrels for 7 months, then refermented on Pineapple & Mango.

Strong vanilla oak flavours, with pear and apple notes from the chardonnay barrels. The peach apricot version is bright and juicy while the pineapple mango accents more acidity. Both have a dry finish and will continue to develop more funk over time due to the brettanomyces used in bottle conditioning.

Citra IPA - 6.8% abv. (Corbyville)

FireWire Citra IPA is the second in a series of New England style IPAs From Signal Brewing Company. Great hop flavour and aroma with a very balanced bitterness that makes this beer extremely drinkable and approachable.

We previously featured the Simcoe variant of FireWire!


Bad Apple wheat beer

Fruited Wheat - 4.0% abv. (Zurich)

Using fresh local strawberries, this is a perfect blend of strawberry juice and a light wheat ale.

A little taste of summer β€” hopefully soon to come!

Chocolate Vanilla Stout - 6.0 % abv. (Toronto)

Our latest partner brewery is Common Good (Scarborough)! Their Chocolate Vanilla Stout is brewed with cocoa nibs and Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. The flavors are prominent, yet subtle, and by no means a dessert stout. This is the first stout we've ever put in our curations, and we're sure this will change the mind of everyone who doesn't yet like stouts! 



Stone House Brewing Cream Lager

Cream Lager - 5.0% abv. (Varna)

This is like a cream ale, but it’s been lagered and made with lager yeast. This makes it much lighter in colour than a cream ale, with a crisper, cleaner finish.

It is incredibly creamy due to the amount of oats that it was brewed with.

Belgian Stong - 9.0% abv. (Ottawa)

Brewed with Hamilton's Fairweather Brewing.

Dry-hopped with Simcoe and Strisselspalt, this beer blends complex aromatic notes of fruit, spice, candied sugar and floral. This love affair is supported by traditional Belgian yeast character, light bitterness and a dry finish.

DIPA - 8.5% abv. (Ottawa)

Brewed in collaboration with Barncat Artisan Ales.

Bursting with pineapple and passion fruit flavour and tartness, this DIPA is juicy, soft, hoppy and ultra crushable.



Glassware Etiquette: We recommend using any tulip shape glass for all of these beers or a wine glass works too. IPA glasses work great for the IPA's. For simplicity, you can use our tumbler for any style of beer, always.
