Trainwreck is carefully aged with French and American oak

Scarfface Orange Cranberry Wit


Trainwreck Oak Aged Barley Wine
- 10% - 650mL

November 7th, 2016: As your numbed fingers and toes can attest, it's barley wine season! To celebrate, Trainwreck is once again rolling down the tracks to your local liquor store.  Our 10% behemoth is carefully oak aged with French and American oak, stoking this brew full of rich malt flavours and hints of toasted caramel.  The mild carbonation of this barley wine allows the silky sweet flavour profile to settle on the palate and linger a little longer on the finish.  Trainwreck should be enjoyed at (8C), but at 10% ABV be careful not to derail your caboose.

Trainwreck Oak-Aged Barley Wine is released in a 650mL bottle and available from finer private beer stores for a limited time only.

If you'd like to sample Trainwreck on draft, we are hosting a special tasting at the brewery this Thursday  November 10th from 4-6pm.

Say hello to our little friend...again!

Scarfface Orange Cranberry Wit


Scarfface Orange Cranberry Wit
- 4.3% - 473mL

October 31st, 2016 - Say hello to our little friend...again! Scarfface was born as a seasonal bomber last year, but it was so good that we've brought it back as a 473mL tall can and will be keeping it around until spring.  Snow-packed with enough cranberry and citrus to make a bad guy feel good, this brew is a welcome break from the heavy winter ales.
Pouring a soft melon orange colour with a pillow white head, aromas of fresh oranges and fruity esters lead to a sweet orange wheat body, that finishes with a crisp cranberry tartness.

This seasonal brew is available in the tall can section of your favourite private craft beer store until spring.  If you find yourself in our neck of the woods, come on down to the brewery for a free tasting this Thursday from 4-6.
