Beer Story

Honey from our local bees and world-renowned prairie malt are the backbone to this lager. Together with Nugget and Fuggles hops, the result is a nutty caramel flavour, a mild hop bitterness, and a lingering sweetness.

“While the story of Canada’s top notch malt is widely known, this region's honey deserves the spotlight too. We source our honey from Golden Acres Honey in Three Hills Alberta. It’s world-class… and right in our own backyard.” ~Brewmaster Paul Gautreau
