Beneath The Noise

Nitro Dry Stout・16oz・

   

4.8% abv



Restrained bitterness and balanced flavours of cold brew and chocolate fill your cheeks like creamy, sonic waves of flavour. Like the smooth sounds of vinyl, Beneath The Noise is ideal for letting the tone and rhythm of great songs carry you away!

Young Rival

IPA ・16 oz ・

   

6.0% 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.

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.

For guest tap, cider, and wine options, please see menu board in our taproom.
