This week's beer and food menu.
The Kölsch style was developed in the 1800s in Cologne as an alternative to the bottom-fermenting lagers taking over the brewing industry in Germany. Best consumed fresh, this lagered ale offers subtle malt and hop aromas reminiscent of honey and pear, with light citrus notes. The name, Naked, plays on the stripped down flavours of this authentic-tasting example of the style.
Golden Square Mile blonde ale
Based on a local Montreal recipe from the 1930s, this golden ale offers subtle floral aromas, along with hints of citrus, pear, and peach. Lightly hopped with Styrian Golding, Brewer’s Gold, and East Kent Golding hops, Golden Square Mile reflects the tasteful opulence of its namesake neighbourhood
Camp Norway NEIPA
Mixing east coast and Norwegian brewing styles, our Camp Norway NEIPA is a hazy fruit explosion made with Citra and Galaxy hops, and fermented with Norwegian Kveik yeast. A robust and cleanly fermenting yeast, Kveik supercharges the beer’s fruity flavour, leaving you with a full-bodied, delicious glass of sunshine.
Bittered with English Northern Brewer and Challenger hops, Flagship English Special Bitter (ESB) is a golden coloured pale ale, topped by clouds of creamy-white foam. With a somewhat sweet maltiness, and the cookie/biscuit and jam-like aromas of a true British ale, Flagship is made in the style of a traditional pub ale.
Piper Oatmeal Stout
Piper Stout is an opaque, black-brown oatmeal stout with a thick tan-coloured head. Warming and rich for cool afternoons or misty evenings, it has a silky smooth mouthfeel thanks to a good helping of oats, while also being both a little sweet and a little bitter. Not lacking in body, it leaves you with a finish reminiscent of both chocolate milk and chocolate-covered cranberries.
Red Spark Kölsch (Sold Out)
Red Spark is a clear, crimson, Kölsch-style ale with a delicate creamy head. An easy-drinking lagered ale, similar in flavour to complex pale lagers, Red Spark offers aromas of apple and pear, with hints of fresh herbs and honey. Its moderate bitterness is nicely balanced by its restrained sweetness, making it the perfect beer for sunny afternoons on the dock or warm evenings by the fire.
