Crosscut : Our own rendition of a traditional Canadian ale, darker and more complex than commercial lagers, but still quite palatable for easy drinking. Designed for Canadian drinkers!

8 Man : Our English Pale Ale is reminiscent of the malt rich brews shared after many a tough rugby match in the UK. We named this unfiltered ale after arguably the toughest position in rugby.

Red Fox : An easy drinking ale with a distinct colour and flavour from the addition of beets. Citra hops deliver a foxy, citrus bitterness. Due to popular demand, the Red Fox is now available year round.

Brothers House Ale : Brewed in collaboration with the Reid Brothers, friends of the brewery and owners of the Red House in Kingston. Lightweight (4.0% ABV) and dry-hopped with El Dorado for a tropical aroma.

Harvest Ale : We harvest our fields of barley and hops during the waning days of summer, capturing their flavour for this 100% farm-grown ale.


Keg FAQ

What size of kegs do you sell?

All of our beers are available in 30L and 50L kegs.
To put that in perspective a 30L keg holds the equivalent of 63 tall boy cans while a 50L keg holds 105 tall boys.

How do I get the beer out of the keg?

There are two ways of getting beer out of a keg:

1) With a pony pump (AKA bronco pump). The the pump uses air to pressurize the keg and push the beer out. With this method the beer should be kept cold in a tub of ice and needs to be consumed within 24 hours of tapping.

2) With a draft beer system (keg fridge), sterile carbon dioxide is used to pressurize the keg and move the beer out, while the keg is kept cold in a refrigerator. Shelf life is substantially increased allowing a keg to last up to 4 months after tapping.

Where can I get a pump or draft beer system?

  • We have pony pumps you can rent for $25, available when you pick up a keg.
  • A draft beer system package is available through our online store and at our retail store for pickup and free local delivery, or through major retailers.

How long does a keg last untapped?

Kegs can be kept in a cool place like a basement, out of the sun for 3-4 weeks before drinking. The beer will need to be cooled for 24 hours prior to tapping or you will have foamy warm beer.

What type of keg coupler do i need?

Our kegs use a Sankey style type "D" coupler. This is the industry standard across North America.

How much do kegs cost?

30L keg - $142 + hst + $50 deposit*.
50L keg - $220 + hst + $50 deposit*.
*Deposits are refunded when kegs are returned.

Can I get a keg delivered to my house?

Yes, if you order online and are in our local delivery area, you can have the keg delivered directly to your house. If you have an empty keg you would like to return, have it ready to go and our driver will give you your $50 cash deposit back.
