Named for our departing teammate Matt, the delivery genius behind our online orders, and his impending voyage to the west coast, this latest IPA shines with flavours of full-bodied orange and candied grapefruit with hints orange Tic-Tac and honeydew melon.

On My Way
You & Us
Nectarine IPA w. Mosaic & Citra
Peachier than a peach and super smooth, this hazy IPA with nectarines is a juicy, stone fruit laden love letter to the way great flavours can bring us together – even in these ever-changing times.
Merlot Flour Sour w. Cherries, Plums, Cacao Nibs, Vanilla
Swirling flavours of merlot flour, cherries, plums, cacao nibs and vanilla so you can witness the grand finale: a refreshingly tart and complex sour ale with a little something for everyone.
Black Is Beautiful
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
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!
American Dry Lager
No Limit (American Dry Lager) is a straight up brilliant beer. Brewed with 15% flaked corn, No Limit is super dry and crisp.
Willibald Gin Barrel Aged Kviek w. Brett & Spent Gin Botanicals
Fashionably Late, a Kveik w. Brett & Spent Gin Botanicals that we brewed with our friends at Willibald Farm Distillery, was funky OJ in a bottle! What we didn’t tell you when we first released Fashionably Late, was that a very small portion of that batch was tucked away into some barrels that Willibald had previously used for their Barrel Aged Gin! After a few months of aging later and almost 5 months of conditioning in the bottle the result is…..’Gin Party’!
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 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.
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 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.
