Portage on Main
Heather Oat Ale | 4.5% alc./vol.
A collaboration with the good people at 5 Paddles Brewing Co., this heather oat ale offers floral and fruity aromas, a light, creamy body and very low bitterness. At 4.5% ABV, this is a highly quaffable beer for riding out the spring thaw.
Smoked Wheat on Rye
Wheat Beer | 4.9% alc./vol.
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.
Belgian Dubbel | 7.0% alc./vol.
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.
Monday Night Piper
Scottish-Style Ale | 4.8% alc./vol.
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.
IPA | 6% alc./vol.
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.
Porter | 5.5% alc./vol.
When we first brewed this beer, it conjured up a powerful storm. Take shelter and stay warm with this complex, roasty porter and its notes of coffee and dark chocolate.
American Blonde Ale | 4.5% alc./vol.
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.
