Happy Place

Cab Franc Skin & Vine Saison

Happy Place, the latest in our beer-wine hybrid series, is a naturally conditioned saison aged on Cab Franc grapes and skins while the canes and vines are harvest-dried, to smoke a portion of the grain, adding tannin and structure. Dry with a piquette-like intensity Happy Place presents delicate red fruit with a restrained tartness and a refreshing finish.

Way Too

IPA w. Galaxy, Vic Secret and Citra


6.4% abv

MERIT has always has a team connection to Welland, Ontario – and Way Too is an IPA that evokes the spirit of Welland’s signature casual phrase – it’s way too everything, in the best ways! Brewed with a popping hop trifecta of Galaxy, Vic Secret and Citra hops, Way Too shows off a bright blend of tropical, stone fruit, pineapple, pine, grapefruit and mango aromas and flavours, with an easy juicy finish. It’s way too. IYKYK.

Young Rival



6.0% abv

Young Rival is our flagship IPA. Using a blend El Dorado 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.
