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!

Violets Are Blue

Gamay Gose

   

6.2% abv



Violets Are Blue is a gose aged on freshly pressed Rosewood Estates Gamay grapes. Drinks like a Gamay rosé petnat – strawberry, rhubarb, juicy raspberry, balanced acidity, fine carbonation after aging in bottle for 5 months. Gamay gosé rosé ya’ll!

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.

What Dreams May Come

Tequila Barrel Aged Gose w. Salted Lime Skins

   

6.6% abv



It returns! What Dreams May Come, spent 14 months in 2nd use tequila barrels before being blended and aged on salt-fermented lime skins!

WDMC basically drinks like a cocktail, with huge fresh coconut and lime meeting floral tequila, rinsing salinity, and refreshing tartness.

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.

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 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.

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

Tomorrows

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.
