FRESH OFF THE LINE: NEW CANS!

BEER ARCHIVE

 

Part of what keeps us coming into the brewery every day is that we're always brewing new and exciting beers. From imperial stouts made with Lindisfarne oysters, to fruit infused Black IPAs, to single-hopped Belgian IPAs. Creativity keeps us going, and we've come up with some phenomenal tasting beers over the years.

As sad as we are when we sell out of a beer, we love coming up with new ones; the beers listed here are currently out of stock, however some of them may be rebrewed again in the future...

 

 

 

ALL THE LEAVES ARE BROWN

STYLE: Imperial Brown Ale          ABV: 10.5%

A sticky and sweet delight brewed with maple syrup, originally for Borefts Beer Festival. After we had it on keg at our Oktoberfest festival in 2017, it flew out the door upon its release in bottle and has fast become one of our favourite beers we've brewed. It's one of RateBeer's Top Beers of 2017.

BRANDY BARREL MEXICAKE

STYLE: Imperial Stout          ABV: 11.6%

Mexicake is a beer that was begging to be barrel aged; we chose two barrels to start, one being Bourbon and the other being Brandy. The brandy barrel brought out the Christmas cake like flavours in Mexicake - rich dried fruit, ground spice, and vanilla, with a boozy warmth.
