OUR INGREDIENTS

OUR
HOPS

As we introduce our hops during stages of the boiling process, our beer begins to flourish with distinctive tastes. The end product is a smooth, flavourful brew.

OUR
BARLEY

High quality, locally sourced barley allows us to have fresh product ready to be milled on site. We also grow our own barley for special recipes.

OUR
YEAST

Yeast is introduced into the wort to support the fermentation process and to kick-start the alcohol development. Yeast is an integral part of the brewing process.
