8 unique breweries and 9 unique beers. 4011ml.
IPA - 6.5% abv. (Caledon)
Brewed exclusively for our members, this beer is hopped with Mosaic and Eureka.
Delectably fruit forward; presenting assertive notes of tangerine, mango, and stone fruit backed by nuanced citrus, grapefruit rind and soft lingering pine.
Barley Wine - 9.2% abv. (Markham)
Not to be confused with actual wine, this beer is made entirely of barley malt. This style was originally made in England as a domestic alternative to imported European wines. We have ‘Americanized’ it by using large amount of distinctive American hops. Sweet Premium Wine is an American-style barleywine hopped with Cascade, Chinook, Centennial and Idaho 7 for notes of grapefruit and orange with some tropical pine notes. We’ve used a mixture of premium English malt and Canadian malt for a slightly biscuity malt undertone, as well as a mixture of English caramel malts for a depth of caramel and toffee notes. This beer can be drank fresh to enjoy the hop character, or aged for 3+ years to allow the flavours to mellow.
American Pale Ale - 5.2% abv. (Whitby)
Hazy and juicy; this New England style American Pale Ale has a massive dry hop leaving juicy citrus aroma jumping out of the glass. Super drinkable with hop flavour throughout accentuated with the use of Vermont yeast.
Saison - 8.0% abv. (St. Jacobs)
A big Belgian inspired imperial Saison. Golden/copper colour with a round mouthfeel and sweet, smooth finish. You’ll have a tough time tasting that 8% abv - be careful!
Brut IPA - 6.5% abv. (Toronto)
In the early 20th-century, photographers would offer informal portraiture at fairs and carnivals, where people could pose atop a paper moon. They were printed on souvenir postcards, a trend that remained popular for half a century. Our Paper Moon as effervescent as sparkling wine, bone-dry, with a pale near-clear appearance and strong New World hop aroma, courtesy of Mosaic and Vic Secret.
Dry-Hopped Lager - 5.2% abv. (Toronto)
Resistance Dry-Hopped Lager has a light-body and a sharp mind. The baby brother of our Gaslight Helles Lager, Resistance presents light and malty on the tongue followed by a citrusy kick courtesy of Sorachi Ace Hops.
Pilsner - 4.5% abv. (Elora)
An unfiltered Czech inspired Pilsner made with 100% Pilsner malt and Saaz hops. Full bodied and soft with a classic snappy finish.
Fruited Sour - 5.4% abv. (Newmarket)
A kettle sour loaded with pomegranate and cherry. This slightly tart, pink juicebomb will have you wishing it was warmer weather.
Farmhouse Sour - 5.7% abv. (Toronto)
A balanced presentation of herbal and grassy hop notes, tropical yeast character, and a subtle citrus tartness. Pours a bright straw colour with a visible haze. Lemon curd, pineapple, and elderflower are some of the aromas first appearing. Following that notes of peach and lemongrass round out this interpretation of a drinkable american farmhouse ale.
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.
