All of our beers are brewed one barrel at a time (they're even mashed in a barrel!), lending a distinct vintage quality to each batch. It also allows us to stretch our wings creatively, completely free of a production schedule.
All of our beers are produced using a variety of yeasts and bacteria. Our inspiration comes from the farmhouse brewing traditions of Europe, and brewers of funky, weird beers around the world.
Every one of our beers starts and finishes in oak barrels that previously held wine or various spirits. The oak and its previous inhabitant become a part of the flavour profile, and our mixed culture takes residency in the nooks and crannies.
Sold out at the brewery. See below for a list of our retail partners!
BIERE DE GARDE
Inspired by the farmhouse ales of Northern France, and named for the small, largely French speaking community that sprang up on Dominion Creek during the Gold Rush. Pours a bright golden colour. Malt forward, yet finishes dry. A bit of Brett funk and fruit that will develop with age. 7% ABV 500 ml
SOUR IMPERIAL RED ALE
A big, bold name, for a big, bold beer! The idea for this beer was born during the lunar eclipse this past January, while enjoying one of the last bottles of our sour red from last year, BLOOD MOON. Tart, with a hint of balancing sweetness from the crystal malts used. Notes of dark stone fruit. Fantastic sipper for around the campfire as days start to grow shorter. 8% ABV 500 ml
FRUITED GOLDEN SOUR ALE
Like taking a fistful of fresh, juicy raspberries off the bush, and stuffing them into your face! That's really the only way to describe this beer. Pours a beautiful deep red, with big aromas of juicy, ripe berries. Tart and jammy. 5.8% ABV 500 ml
DRY-HOPPED GOLDEN SOUR ALE
Our golden sour base, dry-hopped exclusively with Galaxy hops. In addition to our "usual" blend of microbes, we brewed this batch with an enigmatic strain of brewer's yeast noted for it's tropical fruit flavour contributions. Huge peach, pineapple, and mango notes from the yeasts and hops. 5.8% ABV 500 ml
SAISON WITH SPRUCE TIPS
Brewed in collaboration with Devil's Club Brewing from Juneau, AK. A dry, hoppy saison, brewed with mixed cultures from both our breweries, and a late kettle addition of early foraged spruce tips. Notes of chardonnay and tropical beaches, with distinct spruce tip on the finish. It's like you're sitting by the ocean, but at what latitude? Oh, and the name you ask? A shared love for the greatest TV show of all time. 6% ABV 500 ml
