Fans of Tomorrows (Earl Grey Tripel) will notice familiar Belgian esters with the added complexity of strawberry, raspberry, sweet cherry, and slight grape skin tannin thanks to the addition of Pinot Noir Skins and Wild Lees from our friends at Leaning Post Winery in Hamilton!
Currently On Tap
By And By
Tripel w. Leaning Post Pinot Noir Skins & Wild Lees
Kviek w. Brett & Spent Gin Botanicals
Kveik with Brett that saw spent Willibald Gin Botanicals infused in the mash water to create a unique and funky farmhouse ale that expresses subtle orange, botanicals, and balanced funk.
Brut DRIPA w. Rosewood Riesling
This DRIPA was brewed with rice as a portion of the grain bill and freshly pressed riesling, fermented w. saké yeast, and hopped w. Citra, Amarillo, Mandarina, Blanc, and Huell Melon making it a surprisingly sessionable, dry, and refreshing display of saké, tropical fruit salad, white grape, and more!
Imperial Saison w/ Niagara Honeycomb, Peach & Plum
Good Things is a new, once-a-year release that celebrates the past year’s harvest by purposefully selecting a few of our favourite local ingredients to use in a limited release. Good Things 2018 is an Imperial Saison w. Niagara Peaches, Sour Plums, & @RosewoodWine Honeycomb! It’s bone dry, complex, evolves in your glass over time, and a beer we’re really proud of!
Second Star To The Right
A perfect fall treat that showcases a hint of citrus balanced with soft chocolate. $1 of each Taproom pour will go to @SACHAHamOnt!
Repeat After Me
Repeat After Me was our 100th brew at MERIT so in addition to a little bit of Centennial (GET IT??) we used a ton of Citra, Ella, Huell Melon, & Mandarina Bavaria.
Vintage Coffee Porter
Our final offering in our profile of Hamilton coffee roasters this week featuring Vintage and our first version with Cold Brew.
Nowhere is our first Imperial Stout release, now pouring on our Nitro tap. Notes of sweet dark chocolate, cappuccino, and vanilla engulf the palate. Like a fine wine this beer is best served slowly over time aged in a cool cellar.
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
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
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 4%, 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.
