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!
Only here for a limited time so come grab it in Growlers and 650 ml Bombers now at Yukon Brewing
Baltic Porter 6.5%
This delicious brew has a brown sugar sweetness with the perfect effervescence matched with raisin and dark fruit characteristics.
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..

You Only Live Once
Imperial Red 7.5%
Yukon Red has been around since the very beginning of our brewery, and has won its fair share of awards. So we thought, “what if we made it bigger?”And Bigger it is. It’s built much like the Yukon Red in terms of the malt bill and hopping except more-so. More malt and more hops, means more body and higher alcohol, and a ton of that characteristic from Yukon Red flavour equals a Yukon Red on Steroids. It has almost 60% more grain per litre of beer, and nearly double the hops, including a dry-hopping that the Yukon Red does not get. Why? You Only Live Once #YOLOAvailable on the Growler system now in the brewery and in 650 ml Bombers in the brewery and around the Yukon and Alberta.
Cascadian Dark Ale 7.0%
Longest Night is dark and malty, due to the generous use of both chocolate malt and black malt. And, let’s talk hops. Longest Night contains plenty of Millenium, Cascade, and Glacier hops used during the kettle boil. But, it also is dry-hopped with both Cascade and Millenium. Coming in at 6.0% abv, full of both malt and hop flavours, and with plenty of hop bitterness, this is not the beer for the faint of heart.
Available at the Brewery, in Growlers, 6-packs or in the Darkside pack now!
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.
