Hop heads take note: Our annual County IPA will be available just in time for thanksgiving. For this beer, we take advantage of hops grown right here, in Prince Edward County. This IPA had hops added 5 times during the brewing process to make it bitter and super hoppy. And if you're wondering, yes, we dry hoped it too. We've used a blend of five different hops, four of them fresh and local.

subtle malt sweetness is balanced by the hop aroma and bitterness.It
goes great with flavourful foods like red meat, Mexican food and deep
While you'll want to keep it refrigerated before serving, this beer's best enjoyed at 10 – 15 degrees C
"Where can I get some!?", you're probably asking. it's available at the Brewery and at Select Licensees Starting October 5th while supplies last.
A Brief History of India Pale Ale
India Pale Ale--IPA for short--is a style of beer popularized in Britain
the late 18th century. After Russia imposed heavy tariffs on imported
beer, British breweries, needing to make up for the lost business, sent
the beer to India where it was especially popular with the East India
Trading Company. The traditional wisdom about India Pale Ale is that,
since hops are a natural preservative, The super hoppy brew aged well
during its long voyage to India .
Brewers in other countries, including Canada, have been brewing IPA-style beers for well over a hundred years.
