Magic Number

Neapolitan Milkshake Stout

5% abv



Our favourite trio of ice cream flavours: decadent chocolate, strawberry cream, and vanilla all work in harmony in this full-bodied stout. Aromatics are rich chocolate and sweet strawberry. The creamy mouthfeel may even trick you into thinking this is really a scoop of the classic Neapolitan ice cream.

Breakfast?

Fruit Loop Milkshake IPA

6% abv



Brewed with 60lbs of Froot Loops and dry hopped with Amarillo and Citra, Breakfast? balances flavours of bright candied citrus with a creamy vanilla milkshake mouthfeel and a finish that lingers like the last sip of milk from the cereal bowl.

SVP

French Table Beer

3% abv



It’s time to reclaim the lunchtime pint. Meals should be worth celebrating, and what better way to do so than having a pint in hand while you take a mid-day break to enjoy a bite? At 3%, SVP is approachable, but different than most attempts are creating a “light” beer as it’s brewed with wheats, oats, and barley, and fermented with our house saison yeast.

Chanan

Dry Hopped Saison with Orange Peel & Indian Coriander

5.3% abv



Chanan is a hybrid of three styles as it is hopped like an IPA, uses orange peel and coriander like a German wit, and is fermented with our house saison yeast. Chanan is full of bright citrus aromas and flavours and drinks dry, making for an approachable, but complex, refreshing sip every time.

Young Rival

IPA

6% abv



Young Rival is our flagship IPA. Using a blend El Dorado, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops, we focused on creating a juicy and tropical IPA with very limited bitterness, and a simple malt bill that lets the hops shine.

Bright Eyes

Wit

5% abv



A vibrant fruity ester and floral aroma with subtle hints of lavender lead to flavours of lemon meringue thanks to the addition of lemon peels, vanilla, and lactose. Bright Eyes is refreshing and sessionable, with a smooth mouthfeel and classic Wit finish.

On Two

Double IPA

8% abv



Because waiting for three is not our style. Jump the gun, get a head start. Go On Two.

Double dry hopped with a ton of Motueka, Mosaic, and Amarillo for huge pineapple, peach, and passionfruit flavour and aromatics. Deceptively 8% with a smooth mouthfeel and a dry finish thanks to the use of flaked oats and wheat.

Weekends For Breakfast

London Fog Milkshake IPA

6.8% abv



Brewed with our friend Andy DiMatteo from Left Field Brewery. Our take on the newest IPA craze blends a traditional London Fog recipe with a full-bodied citrus-forward IPA, highlighting the best of both. Brewed with lactose sugar, vanilla, and a generous amount of Mosaic and Amarillo hops, Weekends For Breakfast is sweet, bright, and brings you a sip of breakfast any time.

Real Real

American Sour Saison

6.5% abv



Real Real is a collaboration with our friend Jen Nad, brewer at Dieu Du Ciel. Real Real was brewed to approach a hopped kettle sour slightly differently. The addition of spelt adds to the body of the beer and provides a touch of honey-like sweetness.

Unrivaled

Double IPA

8% abv



Unrivaled in our pursuit to stand out in the crowd, this vibrant and bright Double IPA has notes of mango, pomello, and orange pith thanks to a double dry hop of Citra and Amarillo.

For guest tap, cider, and wine options, please see menu board in our taproom.
