Guava Gose – Collective Arts Brewing

Pouring a beautiful soft cloudy pink and smelling of a tropical vacation, our Guava Gose is like a sour mashed wheat beer dosed with the largest batch of guava we could get away with. The base Gose has a balanced lemony tartness from the presence of malted wheat, Himalayan pink sea salt and coriander with a flowery bright smoothness from guava. The end result is a perfect balance of tart, sweet, and sour, leaving you refreshed and wanting more.

Saint of Circumstance is our go-to, easy-drinking, any occasion brew. We started by creating this tasty blonde ale using wheat for its lemony flavour and added Citra, Centennial, and Amarillo hops.

This collaboration with Tooth and Nail Brewing in Ottawa is a re-brew of a unique German Pale Ale we originally made at their place in the nation’s capital. Named “Frisch” (German for “Fresh”), this beer uses WetHOP™ Hallertau Blanc and WetHOP™ Callista hops from our friends at Brew Culture, the only ones in Canada who offer these unique fresh German hops. WetHOP™ is a preservation technology for freshly harvested hops that allows us in North America to use German hops and retain their freshly harvested ‘wet hop’ qualities. Expect a lovely fresh green hop character, with the subtle notes of citrus, stone fruit, white wine and fresh cut grass.

Earl Grey Wheat-Beer – Collective Arts Brewing

Belgian Wits are traditionally brewed with orange peel and coriander, so to add a flavourful and modern twist on a classic we enlisted the help of our pals at Genuine Tea.
