Our Lagers

Our Lagers are crisp and refreshing and have a smooth finish, due to the longer aging process. Lagers belong to the world’s most popular beer and so are ANNE and MARIE. Taste of lagers range from sweet to bitter and pale to black and they are bottom-fermented. ANNE and MARIE have a pale to medium color, have high carbonation as well as a medium to high hop flavor.

MARIE is from Germany. She is a lager and was stored several months in near-freezing temperatures. Her taste is refreshing and is one of our most popular girls.

Our Ales

Both of our ales are brewed at cellar temperature. MICHELLE and ELENOR are fuller-bodied than the Lagers and contain nuances of fruit or spice and a hoppy finish. They are generally robust and complex with a fruity aroma. MICHELLE and ELENOR are darker than ANNE. Ales are darker than lagers, ranging from rich gold to reddish amber and are top fermenting. The more hops in the wort gives these beers a distinctive fruitfulness, acidity and pleasantly bitter seasoning. Ales have a more assertive, individual personality than lager, though their alcoholic strength is the same.

Our Stouts

There’s very little distinction between a Porter and a Stout, but they do have their differences. Porter is a dark, almost black, fruity-dry, top fermenting style. An ale, porter is brewed with a combination of roasted malt to impart flavour, colour and aroma. Stout is also a black, roast brew made by top fermentation. Stout, not as sweet to the taste, features a rich, creamy head and is flavoured and coloured by barley. Stouts often use a portion of unmalted roasted barley to develop a dark, slightly astringent, coffee-like character.
