• Pale Ale Project #4

    For the fourth instalment of our session ale series we've brought back the malt base for Pale Ale Project #1 and tweaked our original hop bill slightly with the edition of Centennial hops alongside the original recipe's Citra and Amarillo. We'd like to call your attention to Exhibit D, which contains further evidence that low ABV need not constitute lack of flavour.

  • Breaking Bitter

    Probably our most to-style beer. We aimed to make a very malt-forward ale utilizing traditional ingredients that would have been used for a bitter. And, in BTP style, we upped the ante with boatloads of East Kent Goldings hops to give off a massive floral, grassy and citrusy aroma, followed by an amazingly balanced flavour, plus a big hop-forward finish with lots of sweet malt.

  • Ball Dropper

    We brewed Ball Dropper last year for New Years. Be it your last drink of 2015 or your first drink of 2016, this beer will stick with you. We use big, juicy Nelson Sauvain and Motueka hops and although the malt appears to play second fiddle in this hop focused beer, it does manage to provide the structure and balance necessary in a great IPA

  • Dark Night Lite

    Bridgehead cold steeped Nicaraguan coffee stout. A rich dark chocolate and coffee nose with a balance of sweetness.

    4.5% ABV

    25 IBU
  • Zoot Suit IPA

    Zoot Suit is an IPA like no other: it needs to be tasted to be understood. Sure, there is a cornucopia sweet characteristics and a hoppy bitterness. Sure the nose is mind-blowingly complex and fun and begs you to drink it.

    5.9% ABV

    70 IBU
  • Pale Ale Project #2

    The start of what will be an ongoing experiment with fun and hops. This second batch is done with Canadian barley, malt, and just enough British crystal malt to give us a perfect base for the Chinook and Centennial hops.

    5.2% ABV

    28 IBU
  • Aromatherapy IPA

    Aromatherapy IPA is our new release for this week. At 6.5% and 55 IBUs this Vermont inspired IPA explodes with aromas of lemons, stone fruit, and pine. The flavour is juicy and fruity (think peach, mango, lime, orange) with a nice pine spiciness. The malt backbone and body are smooth, for increased drinkability. The moderate bitterness is designed to increase the aromas and flavour of the hops. Enjoy this beer fresh!

  • It’s a Scotch Ale

    A malt forward beer to satisfy the nutritional diet of many Scot's. Dark fruit and subtle roast dominate the aroma accompanied by a smooth body and balanced bitterness with just a hint of peat malt. A sessionable beer to be consumed with company by the quantity.

    6.8% ABV

    27 IBU
  • Pale Ale Project #3

    Number three in our series to conquer the Pale Ale! This time showcasing Nelson Sauvin hops. This beer has fruity citrus notes accompanied by grassy herbal undertones. A light malt backbone and soft bitterness showcases the aroma of Nelson hops. A to style fruity sessional pale ale.

  • Govern Yourself Accordingly

    Paying tribute to tradition with a fresh twist of innovation is the governing role of the western brewing world. As such, we have declared rye a perfect suitor to the creamy semi-sweet character of this Porter, offering its silken mouthfeel along with a hint of rye's rugged spice. This seductively smooth dark ale may have you straying from the beaten path but a bounty this sweet is surely justified. Miscreants, you have been warned.

  • Little Big

    When grappling with the forces of the universe it can be challenging to keep a clear focus under the influence of it's most potent concoctions. It is for this reason that we have given Big Bang a younger sibling, or dare we say, a Little Dipper. Little Bang brings a more gentle resinous explosion and a lighter celestial body than its cosmic twin.

    5% ABV

    32 IBU
  • DarkERness

    Don’t fear dark beer! Darkness’ imperial version loads up on rich, chocolate and robust, roasted coffee, packing a warming caress of sweet alcohol on the finish. Our hopping choices and schedule allow this brew to be big on hops and even bigger on flavour!

    10.2% ABV

    55 IBU

    Grapefruit zest and pulp are used to insert the character of the fruit into the beer, and hops are carefully selected to emphasize the citrus notes. Don’t expect this to taste like the first course of Sunday breakfast; the fruit flavour is subtle, and the bitter quality of the grapefruit is balanced by a bit of sweetness in the finish.

    6.0% ABV

    20 IBU
  • Rye Guy

    Rye Guy is a West Coast style IPA that uses a ton of rye malt as part of the all-Canadian grain bill. American hops give it distinctive citrus and pine notes. The result is a crisp, full-bodied beer that is surprisingly sessionable for 52 IBUs.

    6.7% ABV

    52 IBU
  • The Darkness

    Think you've tasted a robust stout? Think again. The Darkness is an incredibly dark and creamy beer that will overwhelm the palate with loads of dark chocolate and coffee flavours.

    5.6% ABV

    30 IBU

    Get ready for a party in your mouth as Belgian Tripel meets west coast style IIPA. Big tropical hop aroma and flavour is backed up by 9% of malty awesome. And there's just enough spice from the belgian yeast to know that something funky is going on! It's so tasty that at 9.0% ABV people from all walks of life can tap into their inner party animal.

  • Imperial Super Guy

    The granddaddy of our Rye Guy IPA. More grain! More hops! The result is an incredibly flavourful yet balanced Imperial IPA. A big malt flavour up front presents in the form of rich caramel and serves to balance the high bitterness of a beer weighing in at 90 IBUs. The result is a nice, lingering, spicy taste on the tongue that is sure to make you feel super.

Beyond the Pale was started as a small neighbourhood brewery by three local guys who grew up, went to school, and currently reside in the neighbourhood. Equipped with an old 400L brew system and a belief that there was room in the market for somebody wanting to make a variety of full flavour, unique beers, we embarked on our journey in early 2012. The concept was simple: make a variety of beers that WE wanted to drink and create a tasting opportunity for our customers to come into the brewery to decide what they liked, and buy to go.

During our first year of operation we released over 20 different beers, underwent one expansion, and our MO remains the same as it was in the beginning. In addition to the retail store our beers can also be found in over 30 local bars and restaurants.

You can be sure when you pick up a glass or bottle of our beer that you're drinking a fresh local product. We work that little old brew house like a pack mule to crank out as much beer as possible. Nearly all of our beer is sold to customers within a week of leaving our brite tanks. That's freshness that's hard to find elsewhere.

So come drop by the brewery at 5 Hamilton Ave N in Hintonburg. You better believe that we are as serious about brewing beer as you are about drinking it! Strollers, bikes, dogs, and even non beer drinkers are welcome into the brewery to see what we're all about.
