Festbier

Amber Lager - 5.1% abv. (Barrie)

This Festbier is brewed with a focus on a great depth of malt flavour provided by German Vienna, Munich, and Melanoidin malts, balanced by a touch of Willamette hops. Golden Amber in colour with a fine white foam, lighter than a traditional Oktoberfest beer. Extended lagering time gives this beer its crispness and depth of character.

This was our first month featuring Folly, Clifford, and Cowbell!

We have increased to 24 partner breweries!


Glassware etiquette: We recommend using any tulip shape glass for all of these beers, and a wine glass for the berry saison. IPA glasses work great for the IPA's. For simplicity, you can use a "teku" for any style of beer, always.
