and expertise to produce a unique experience for
any lover of beer.
Our brewmaster, Chris Young,
is paired with one of our staff members
to concoct a one-of-a-kind test batch of beer.
Every Sunday, beginning in January, we will be releasing
our hand-crafted test batch beers from the Taproom.

January 21st: IPA with Bergamot
Brewers: Chris & Josh
Lady in Blue, is drinking (IPA) with me
IPAs (India Pale Ales) are the backbone of the craft brewing industry. Known primarily for their hop flavours and their high alcohol content, these beers come in as many varieties as there are stars in the sky. Dating back to the 19th century, this style has had a resurgence in the last four decades that has defined a new wave of beer producers. Many IPA’s are known for their bitter flavours; however hop strains showcase aromas and taste ranging from citrus and pine, to grapefruit and pineapple.
Josh’s use of Bergamot (an exotic citrus fruit) adds a brightness to the flavour. The reduced bitterness allows for subtle flavours and if you look hard enough, you can see the essence of blue from the Mallow Flower additions.
Coming January 28th: “Root Beer Float” by Brandon B.
Beer Passports available at the Taproom.
Prizes to be drawn at the end of the Staff Series.
