Charming or Tedious

Maple Wee Heavy 7.1%

 

Part of our Limited Edition Canada 150 Series. This strong beer is made with Pure Canadian Maple Syrup and pours a  clear, dark red-brick brown colour. The Maple Syrup adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the hovering smokey peat notes of this delight. It is malt forward and creamy on the tongue. Defiantly a crowd favourite!

Available now, for a limited time, in Growlers at the brewery and in 650mL Bombers at local Alberta, BC and Yukon Liquor stores.

Nonamé

Baltic Porter 6.5%

Porter as a style of beer was developed in the UK in the 18th century, offering a stronger, hoppier version of sweet brown ales, and an alternative to pale ales. It got its name from its popularity with dock workers and porters, many of whom were loading ships destined for Baltic ports. It turns out that the most popular porters in the Baltic were strong, imperial porters, which eventually became known as Baltic Porter.  Our version starts with deep aromas of toffee, toasted nuts, and molasses. Dark copper in colour, full of pleasing maltiness and the subtle flavours of plum and raisin, this is a complex beer that is lightly carbonated, finishing with a light but pleasant dark chocolaty bitterness.

Available now in Growlers at the Brewery!

 

Land of the Tree

Spruce Tip APA 5.9%

This past spring was a bumper crop for spruce tips in the Yukon.  We took advantage of that to make a spruce tip gin (Spring Forest) but we still had some left over. We froze them and pondered where and when they could best be used. With the holiday season upon us, we came upon the idea of using them in our American Pale Ale.

The hops used in this beer bring tropical, citrus/berry notes that we felt would be perfectly offset by the pungent spruce tip flavour. This beer is delightfully golden in colour and medium in body, bursting with hop and spruce flavours.

Not the Colonel’s Fried Chicken

Kentucky Common 6.0%

This is a beer style that is seldom found, as it flourished between the latter 1800’s and prohibition, most notably in the Louisville, Kentucky area.  The most notable thing about a Kentucky Common is the use of corn in the mash, which was a new thing for us.

In addition to pale malts, we also employed some medium Crystal, Black, and Vienna malts to provide some breadiness to the body. The beer has obvious corn notes, is light in body, and is mildly hopped with Cascade, Cluster, and Saaz hops.6.0% abv..

Not the Colonels Fried Chicken is on tap here at the brewery, in growlers, now!

Gold Panner

Golden Ale 5.0%

Gold Panner was originally released in 1998, and was our first dry-hopped brew, making it an ideal candidate for our 20th anniversary throwback beers.

Easy effervescence and a balance of earthy and floral aroma play nicely with the radiant fragility of this golden ale. The nearly transparent golden colour is pleasing to the eye, and the light body appeases the brisk hop profile.  If you lean towards a soft, refreshing golden ale, you will strike it rich with Gold Panner.

Available now in Growlers & Bombers at the brewery and local Yukon, Alberta and BC liquor stores.

Road to the Grove

Rye IPA 6.1%

IPAs are reknowned for their hoppy background. But, the use of malted rye adds perfect spicy and earthy notes, nicely complementing the hop forwardness. This light bodied Rye IPA reveals predominant citrus notes and finishes with subtle hints of pear and apricot. Not overly bitter, it is an IPA that serves up the ideal mix drinkable complexity!

Available at the Brewery in Growlers now!

 

 

 

Weekly Cask

Every Friday at noon we release a special innovative Cask made by our amazing brewers! Check out our social media channels, give us a call or come on in to find out what this weeks special cask is!

What is cask ale/real ale?

Cask ale is a natural product brewed using traditional ingredients and left to mature in the cask (container) from which it is served in the pub through a process called secondary fermentation. It is this process, which makes real ale unique amongst beers and develops the wonderful tastes and aromas, which processed beers can never provide. It is served from a cask (firkin) without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. Cask ale may also be referred to as Real Ale, a term coined by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

Why do we add additional “primers”?

Primers – sugars in the form of honey, fruit, Demerara etc. – are added for secondary fermentation.

What is dry hopping?


Dry hopping is the process of adding additional hops, to add more of a hop aroma to the ale. Since these hops are not boiled, we aren’t extracting any of the oils from them, and, therefore, they will not be contributing to the beer’s overall bitterness. Dry hopping, simply, adds hop flavor and aroma. These hops are left inside the firkin, along with the priming sugar.
