CRAFT BREWED IN OTTAWA

Good ingredients are the start of a great brew.

We use time honoured and perfected brewing traditions that have been passed down from brewmaster to brewmaster for centuries. These methods are steeped in artisan spirit and have the precision of science. Using these methods with our state of the art brewing system allows us to produce hand-crafted beers that are pure, free of added chemicals and preservatives, full of flavour, and rich in colour.

Passion for the craft of beer is in every batch we make. We make beer because we love beer. The satisfaction of a job well done is confirmed with the good times, new friendships, and community that is formed around sharing a great pint.

For the love of beer.

Alpha Bomb
Alpha Bomb
Welcome to a journey through hops. There's as much science as there is craft in every perfectly executed beer. We add hops to our brew knowing the rising temps will cause a chemical explosion that transforms alpha acid--living in every hop--into aromatic bittering goodness. With this unfiltered IPA, we've thoughtfully added a trio of hops and then dry hopped it twice to create incredible layers of flavour from those alpha acids--from grapefruit pithiness to tropical fruit to pine. Welcome to Alpha Bomb.

Bock Me Gently
Bock Me Gently
Bock Me Gently is a riff on a rare classic. We carefully crafted this bock using specialty yeast to create a clean, fresh palette. The result is a gorgeous copper-hued beer with rich maltiness and an incredible depth of flavour. It will turn any evening into a celebration and keep you all warm and tender on a cold winter's night.

Using fresh floral hops at the start of the boil allows the complex subtle maltiness to shine. 5.2% alc. vol. - O.G. 1.050 - 18 IBU - 10 Lovibond
