OUR INGREDIENTS

OUR
HOPS

As we introduce our hops during stages of the boiling process, our beer begins to flourish with distinctive aromas, varying bitterness levels and flavours ranging from citrus to floral to piney or spicy. The end product is a smooth, flavourful brew.

OUR
BARLEY

High quality, locally-sourced barley and malted grain allows us to have fresh product ready to be milled on site in preparation for the lautering process (the mashing, recirculating and sparging step of the brew). We also grow our own barley for special recipes.

OUR
YEAST

Yeast is introduced into the wort (grain and hop-infused water) to support the fermentation process and to kick-start the alcohol development. Yeast is an integral part of the brewing process and lends to varying flavours in the final product, as well.
