BEER + CIDER
Bellwoods Roman Candle IPA473ml 6.8% Dry-hopped at the rate of a Double IPA, perfectly balanced, and showcasing bright citrusy aromatics, “Rocan” is a classic. A ightly resinous, balanced IPA that showcases lots of juicy melon and orange peel.
Bellwoods White Picket Fence Boysenberry500ml 6% This foeder fermented saison is the result of a unique blending regimen, before being gently dry-hopped and bottle conditioned. Labour intensive in process, but rewarding in result. A complex, layered beer with perfect champagne-like carbonation to carry the lemon meringue aromatics, bright hop character, and rich brett notes. Refined and balanced acidity with lots of complimentary citrus.
Matron Brewing “Zhuzh”Fieldbier, 3.5% 100% Ontario Ingredients This beer is brimming with Popham Lane Farm black currants. It will take you to tang town for a nice time.
True History Vermont Honk Pale Ale355ml 4.5% Beep beep, mother truckers. Vermont Honk is a pale ale absolutely packed with flavour. Dry-hopped with huge notes of stone fruits and pineapple. It has a super balanced bitterness and mouthfeel so over the top you could literally take a bite out of it.
2019 Brasserie des Voirons Vivante d’Agrumes750ml 5.5% Brasserie Des Voirons was started by Christophe and Barbara, who draw on wide and varied experience in the restaurant industry to open a brewery in 2013. They are committed to using only the highest-quality ingredients and the water sourced from Mont Blanc. Macerated with lemons from Amalfi coast and Sicilian oranges & clementines - delightfully sour!
Revel Vermouth & Soda355ml 4.4% Your favourite Ontario cider company is now in the vermouth business! The base for these cans was a sweet vermouth we made with pears, apples and blue plums. It was then blended with foraged apple blossoms, wild lemon ginger, spruce tips and white pne shoots and refermented dry.
Eric Bordelet Sidre Nouvelle Vague330ml 6.5% A traditional Normandy sidre from one of the best producers in France. Bordelet is a sommelier turned Cider maker. After working in some of France’s best restaurants in the late 80’s early 90’s, Bordelet took over his family farm: 23 hectares of certified organic cider apple, perry orchards. Located in southern Normandy, he works biodynamically with some trees over 300+ years old. Semi-dry, bold flavours with a touch of funk and minerality.
750ml 6.4% Hailing from Brittany in France, this cidre is the real deal. Full-bodied, strong, with a bit of tannic bitterness which gives it superior length on the finish. Blue-cheesy goodness with funk and saucey, spiced apples.
