What Friends Are For

Coffee Cake Bread Pudding Pastry Stout


10.2% abv

A collaboration with Sawdust City

A few weeks back 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.


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.


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.


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.
