Fat Bike

Available now!

Double IPA | 8.5% alc./vol.
seasonal

Brewed with 100% Uxbridge hops grown by 6th Hops, Fat Bike is no lightweight beer, but it’s a revelation: a light body with intense citrusy hoppiness makes Fat Bike as refreshing as an 8.5% ABV beer can be. Pairs with carne asada, tandoori chicken, paella, key lime pie.

High Grass

Let the grass grow. When we launched High Grass, it became an instant classic in our beer garden, the perfect companion to a sunny day.

Monday Night Piper

Available now!

Scottish-Style Ale | 4.8% alc./vol.
2018 Ontario Brewing Awards Bronze winner
year-round

This smooth amber-coloured ale is inspired by Scotland’s 80/- (80 shilling) beer style, priced according to its strength. The star of Monday Night Piper is its deluxe malt bill – best pale malt from England, and caramel and chocolate malts from Germany, add sweetness, rich colour and a tantalizing sponge-toffee flavour, all before finishing dry. Pairs with roast duck, lamb pie, dried fruit and nuts.

3 Rocks

Available now!

IPA | 6% alc./vol.
year-round

Bright aroma, rich golden colour and bracing bitterness define 3 Rocks. The key to its drinkability is in the balance of American hops (citrusy Summit, floral Cascade and piney Chinook) and classic Canadian 2-row barley malt, with just enough specialty malts to add fullness and depth of flavour. American ale yeast ferments clean and provides a dry finish. Pairs with wood-fired pizza, hot wings, Italian sausage pasta.

Elgin Blonde

Available now!

American Blonde Ale | 4.5% alc./vol.
year-round

Easy-drinking blonde ale is known for clear, clean flavours and special attention to high quality malt. German Pilsner malt shines in our beer, providing a bready, biscuity aroma and rich mouthfeel for such a light-bodied, low alcohol beer. Accentuated with citrusy/floral Cascade, Herkules & Saphir hops – just a little more than your everyday blonde’s hop bill, to add some edginess. Pairs with aged cheddar, sushi, classic chicken salad.

Rain Maker

Available now!

Porter | 5.5% alc./vol.
2018 Ontario Brewing Awards Gold winner
year-round

A deep roast character with loads of dark chocolate and espresso flavour make Rain Maker a rich indulgence. But its alterego is a playful pal to all things barbecue with a refreshing, brisk edge and a dry, never-cloying finish. Rain Maker soothes on blustery days but is at home on every summer dinner table. Pairs with grilled meats, cured ham, steak, dark chocolate.

Derailleur

Back in January!

Belgian Dubbel | 7.0% alc./vol.
seasonal

An homage to the rich, dark and intensely fruity dubbel, a style of strong beer that originated in the Trappist abbeys of Belgium. Derailleur has a distinct raisin and dark fruit flavour and aroma from the use of Special B malt as well as candi sugar, a dark, caramelized sugar syrup that is highly fermentable, leaving the beer drier and higher in alcohol, rather than adding sweetness. Pairs with washed-rind cheese, apple spice cake, dark chocolate.

Infused with a specially prepared pure dark chocolate emulsion, this beer is smooth and rich with true chocolate flavour and aroma. Pairs with chicken mole, chili, blue cheese.

Heather Oat Ale | 4.5% alc./vol.

Smoked Wheat on Rye

Taking the season off

Wheat Beer | 4.9% alc./vol.
seasonal

This twist on the traditional Munich wheat beer has a lightly smoked aroma and a crisp, dry finish from additions of oak-smoked wheat and pale rye malts. Low hop bitterness lets these subtle flavours shine. Smoked Wheat on Rye has lingering spice/banana notes, the result of esters produced during its fermentation with weissbier ale yeast. Pairs with smoked fish, potato chips, pickles.
