The winter warmer

It can be tough to enjoy our long Canadian winters. The short days and cold temperatures sap the will. We crafted Winter Spice as the winter warmer that we’d want to drink to give us much-needed comfort during our longest season. Aromas of cloves and caramel evoke the sensation of home baking and the rich, malty flavour is enhanced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.

Little Known Fact

Historically, brewers have utilized a variety of spices to enhance the flavour of their beers. Long before the use of hops became widespread a blend of spices was the primary means of flavouring the beer.
