Berliner Weisse
Les Trois Mousquetaires
Brossard, Que.
“Beautifully clean, crisp, and perfectly sour…a great example of a style I’m really into at the moment. –Emily Tipton, Boxing Rock

Dark and Stormy Night (dunkelweizen)
Picaroon’s Traditional Ales/North Hampton Brewing
This hybrid of English brown ale and German dunkleweizen looks much darker than it tastes. Organic and sessionable.

The Chocolate Manifesto (milk stout)
Flying Monkeys
Barrie, Ont.
Dense. Chocolatey. Boozy.

Red Racer Pale Ale
Central City Brewers and Distillers
Surrey, B.C.
Smells of bread and stone fruit. Tastes like citrus, pine, and dank hops.

PunkRauch (rauchbier)
Le Trou du Diable
Shawinigan, Que.
A brown smoked lager with a hint o’ bacon. A collaboration with Canadian punk legend John Wright of NoMeansNo.
