Extra Nice

Rice Lager

5.2% abv

Extra Nice lagered for over 7 weeks resulting in an extra smooth, extra crisp, extra nice lager. Subtle floral, citrus, and spice aromatics and a clean toasted rice malt profile rinse clean on the dry finish. A perfect patio pint! 5.2% abv

Black Is Beautiful

Imperial Stout

8.7% abv

Our contribution to the worldwide collaboration initiative by the amazing team at Weathered Souls Brewing in San Antonio! Rich chocolate, caramel, coffee with a subtle vanilla finish.

Black Is Beautiful is a collaborative effort to raise awareness for the injustices people of colour face daily with each brewery involved donating funds to local organizations that support righting these injustices.
100% of proceeds of MERIT’s Black Is Beautiful will go towards funding the Black Youth Mentorship Program facilitated by the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion.
Thank you Marcus and the Weathered Souls team for this initiative!

Young Rival


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.


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 Belgian 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.


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 wheat and barley, and fermented with our house saison yeast.

Real Real

American Sour Saison

6.5% abv

Real Real is a collaboration with our friend Jen Nad! 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.

Available In Growlers

Way Too

Hazy IPA w. Galaxy & Vic Secret

6.4% abv

It’d be cliché to say Way Too is JUICY but when it’s the truth, you gotta say it…. tropical fruit juice right here, Hamilton! Way Too has a creamy mouthfeel with a super soft finish.

Mango Here I Am

Hazy IPA w. Mango

6.3% abv

Brewed with Topaz, Amarillo, & Centennial and conditioned with mango juice! Orange oils, mango sherbet, candied grapefruit, and slightly grassiness. Immensely drinkinkable!

More Than

Mango Pale Ale

4% abv

A collaboration with our dear friend Ren Navarro of Beer.Diversity.

Tropical. Punch.

We could just leave the tasting notes to that, but we’ll give you a little more. Dry hopped with Sabro & Ella before the addition of mango puree, More Than is bursting with notes of overripe pineapple, coconut, and of course… mango. While only 4%abv, More Than has a pillowy mouthfeel and finishes without lingering bitterness. $1 from each 16oz pour will be donated to the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion Black Youth Mentorship Program

What Friends Are For

Coffee Cake Bread Pudding Pastry Stout

10.2% abv

A collaboration with Sawdust City

We had the pleasure of hosting our friend Sam from Sawdust City to brew a monster stout inspired by our dessert menu – specifically, our Coffee Cake Bread Pudding! This rich stout is packed with Coffee, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Lactose, and trays of our actual bread pudding. Dark chocolate and coffee are balanced by creamy vanilla and lactose. This beer will be a lot easier to share with a friend than our bread pudding.

Either Way: Gewürztraminer

Orange Wine Lager

6.4% abv

Lager co-fermented with Gewürztraminer with extended aging on Rosewood Winery Gewürztraminer skins. Lychee and wildflower burst over a classic clean and snappy lager base. Very limited availability.

There’s Always Room

Key Lime Pie Sour

5.2% abv

Inspired by those bright fluffy sugary cakes we used to (okay, still do) love! A beautiful and inviting aroma of lime is complimented by a rich creamy aroma from the lactose sugar and golden naked oats, balancing out the rich tang/acidity of the lime addition. Huge notes of lime, crust and vanilla crush the acidic mouthfeel. Balanced very well with the large round lactose richness.


Imperial Stout

9.6% abv

Nowhere is our once-a-year Imperial Stout release and the base of our Imperial Stout program at MERIT. This year’s Nowhere drinks like a caramilk bar melted on top of a cinnamon bun. Sweet, with no hint of the ABV, and finishes with sweet toasty cinnamon. Drink fresh or cellar for up to 3 years.

Young Rival


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.


Early Grey Tripel

9% abv

Tomorrows starts as a traditional Tripel, brewed with oats, wheat, and barley. After fermentation, cornflowers and Earl Grey tea from Monarch Tea Company are added. Why? Because we love working with people who make awesome tasty things. The addition of the cornflowers adds a vanilla-like sweetness that is balanced by the bergamot citrus and floral characteristics.
