New OCB Beers

My, oh my. Our brewers have been busy. It's not surprising, though. They love to brew delicious quality beer. Plus, one of the advantages of small-batch brewing is that they get to try cool new recipes.

Here is a list of the latest beers from our brewmasters, including the offerings produced by the newest OCB members.

Laser Show Vermont Style IIPA
Laser Show Vermont Style IIPA
Left Field Brewery

Laser Show is born from our love for the hazy, tropical IPAs made in North Eastern US, and a particular New England All-Star's laser-beam line drives. This Double IPA is intensely hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Centennial and Mosaic and fermented with a uniquely fruity yeast strain from Vermont. Laser Show overflows with flavours of tropical fruit, lychee, cantaloupe and orange juice concentrate. It's a big, juicy beer with soft mouthfeel and an easy finish.

Bricks & Mortar Coffee Porter
Bricks & Mortar Coffee Porter
Left Field Brewery

Brewed in collaboration with our neighbours, Pilot Coffee Roasters, Bricks and Mortar is our tribute to the brick industry upon which our neighbourhood was built along with our own evolution to becoming a physical brewery. Whole freshly roasted Don Rodrigo Colombian coffee beans are added to the beer during the final stages of conditioning for a gentle, cold extraction process resulting in a blend of juicy mango, earthy nutmeg and a smooth creaminess.

LCBO #488130 (650 mL bottle)
Muskoka Shinnicked Stout
Muskoka Shinnicked Stout
Muskoka Brewery

Shinnicked is that numbing, gasp for breath feeling when you plunge into a Muskoka lake for a chilly late night dip. To warm you up afterward, we created this rich, velvety stout infused with Muskoka Roastery's signature Lumberjack coffee. Dark roasted coffee flavours from the cold-brewed coffee complement the slight chocolatey taste from the roasted malts. Velvety smooth with higher carbonations for a lighter mouthfeel.

Idle Coast
Idle Coast
Redline Brewhouse

Pale gold in colour with a fluffy white head, Idle Coast is our take on a classic Munich Helles Lager. Delicate aromas of fresh bread, and a light herbal quality fade to fresh cut grass. The palate is full to start, before finishing extremely crisp and dry with a touch of bitterness. The flavour leans toward the fresh bread and dough flavours of pilsner and munich malts with herbal, grassy hops playing second fiddle. Eminently crushable and enjoyable at any time, refreshing and satiating.

Trafalgar Mead Braggot
Trafalgar Mead Braggot
Trafalgar Ales, Meads & Distillery

Trafalgar's Mead Braggot (Mead brewed with barley malt) is a historically accurate recipe brewed in a modern facility. Made with premium Ontario grown ingredients, including 2 row barley malt, and Honey sourced less than an hour from the Brewery. This mead has not been infused with any additional flavours unlike our other delicious craft products. It has been brewed to highlight the quality of the local ingredients of honey and barley malt. The honey and malt flavors are balanced with a very light hopping process that results in a pale blonde beverage with historically accurate mild carbonation and thin, light head. This mead has light floral notes and finishes with a off-dry sweet & malty finish. This mead is best paired with delicately flavoured food so not to overwhelm the subtle character this beverage possesses. Our Mead Braggot is a modern version of the worlds oldest alcoholic beverage, and a true representation of the goodness and quality expected from products grown and made in Ontario.

Meanwhile... Down in Moxee IPA
Meanwhile... Down in Moxee IPA
Great Lakes Brewery

The hazy IPA pours a milkshakey orange with some whiteness of the suspended yeast peering through. Huge aromas of mango, nectarines, lychee and strawberry abound from the glass and get those saliva glands kicking into high gear. The first sip, and each gulp thereafter, all provide flavours of tangerine and peach, with some kiwi and mango notes mingling together to create a very juicy experience. Medium body, mildly bitter and yet very refreshing

Sunnyside Session IPA
Sunnyside Session IPA
Great Lakes Brewery

Looks as beautiful in your glass as a lovely summer day at Sunnyside Beach. Gaze into the sun to get an idea of the colour of this unfiltered (brilliant gold, hazy) tasty treat, which is protected with a snowy head, reminiscent of white caps rolling on Lake Ontario. The citrus aromas leap from the glass with each gentle swirl. Lemon is the most prominent followed by pineapple and a touch of grapefruit. It's so aromatic that you'll want to forgo the sunscreen and apply generously to your person. Light body, juicy and refreshing, the same aromas make their way onto the palate, which are elevated due to the soft carbonation and mouthfeel. A dry finish with lingering pineapple notes, Sunnyside has all the flavours of a big GLB IPA packaged into a remarkably drinkable session ale. Terrific for the backyard, the beach, with friends, and in the shower before a big night out.

Octopus Wants to Fight IPA
Octopus Wants to Fight IPA
Great Lakes Brewery

It pours a beautiful burnt gold edging into a dull orange, like a orange creamsicle complete with a tight white head. As you can imagine, lots of tropical fruits abound from the glass with the first whiffs, followed by a walk in the woods as pine, evergreen and some herbaceous notes are picked up. The first sip provides some sweetness, some dank grass combined with pine needles and then onto "juicy fruit". Soft body with some middle mouthfeel bitterness that tastes like another.
