Summer Pale Ale

NE-Style Pale Ale - 6.0% abv. (Markham)

Summer Pale Ale features a three hop blend of Simcoe, Mosaic, and Southern Passion for a unique mix of mango, tangerine and pine notes. We use a combination of oats and spelt for a soft mouthfeel and hazy appearance, as well as a unique yeast blend for additional tropical fruit character. Hazy, soft, and super drinkable, we know this will go perfectly with warm weather.

Dark Lager

Dark Lager - 5% abv. (Varna)

Made out in the countryside of Lake Huron, this is the most refreshing dark lager you'll ever find. It has natural coffee and chocolate notes without the heaviness you typically find in these styles. No overly sweet body or ashy finish either. You typically don't think dark beers in the summer, but this goes down so smooth.

Pairings: BBQ Chicken and Hot Dogs, Mild Cheese, Fish, Pizza

New Limburg


Belgian Tripel - 9.0% abv. (Simcoe)

It is a highly carbonated golden ale which relies heavily on the flavours produced by our yeast during a longer than average period of bottle conditioning. This beer is very easy drinking, despite its strength, and features an aroma of subtle spice mingled with a generous yeast character. The strength, balanced by a slight malty sweetness and generous carbonation. To be served with a healthy head of foam.

Blackberry Gose - 4.1% abv. (Barrie)

24 hours of souring in the kettle, some freshly toasted coriander seed, and sea salt help to make this wheat-forward style a bit tart, extremely thirst-quenching but with a delicate, briny finish. After fermenting with our house strain, we aged it on puréed blackberries bringing out an immense depth of fruit flavour. Purplish-pink in colour, with a juicy blackberry character that leads to a light citrus and pepper note.

New Car Smell

Dry-Hopped Lager - 5.4% abv. (Barrie)

This dry hopped lager was made for that Spring feeling. It uses Simcoe, Mosaic, and Azacca hops for notes of tropical fruit, mangoes, citrus, and just a hint of pine. Pilsner and Vienna malts provide an understated but elegant background of crackers, fresh bread, and a touch of sweetness. Fermentation with a lager yeast and extended cold conditioning provide a crisp and invigorating finish and allow the hops to really shine through.
