We Brew Monthly Collab Beers
Each month, we pop into a different brewery and brew a unique small batch beer! Ranging from a couple hundred litre batches all the way up to 100 hectolitre batches, we always have a ton of fun scheming up recipes with the brew team, co-designing beer labels with the marketing team and showing up on brew day to help make our beer dreams a reality. Make sure to follow us on social @ladiesdrinkbeer to get an up-to-date glimpse of what’s available. Typically, each brew is available for sale by the pint in the brewery tap room, and to-go in cans, growlers or bottles at the brewery’s bottle shop.
Are you a brewery interested in collaborating with us? Drop us a line to discuss.
Ready For Drinking Now
Style: Star Anise & Tangerine Dark Lager
Brewery: Common Good
ABV / IBU: 5%
Inspired by Christmas Cake, Chinese 5 Spice and the cultural mash-up of Scarborough (Common Good's home), we took a classic German dark lager recipe and combined it with the addition of dried Tangerine Peels and Star Anise. This dark lager has pleasant aromas of tangerine, citrus fruits and roasted malts with subtle spice notes. It is mirrored on the palate with sweet toffee and tangerine flavours complemented by slight hints of anise and licorice that linger nicely after each sip.
Star Appeel is now available in the Common Good bottle shop by the can, in very limited quantities.
Hazy Session IPA
Style: Light IPA w/ Grapefruit & Lime
Brewery: Henderson Brewery
ABV / IBU: 4%
Brewed in collaboration with Henderson Brewing, this is a bright, fruit-forward, highly drinkable light IPA at 4% abv. You'll smell fresh lime and grapefruit along with citrus oil and ripe melon. The taste is big citrus flavour up front followed by a bright fruitiness, touch of bitterness and a herbaceous note. The addition of oats and wheat make it soft and almost creamy on the palate, encouraging another sip. It's bound to be your new summer favourite!
Spicy Pineapple Cider
Style: Pineapple Hot Pepper Cider
Brewery: Shiny Cider
ABV / IBU: 7%
While we are and always will be beer drinking ladies, we are also big fans of delicious craft cider. So we've teamed up with @shinyapplecider for a monthly series of growlers that are launching online and eventually at their tasting room in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Cider for beer lovers - who knew?
Tropic Like It's Hot
Style: Catarina Kettle Sour
Brewery: The People's Pint
ABV / IBU: 4.5%
This Catharina Sour (a Brazilian Kettle Sour) is balanced but prominent and has a fresh pineapple aroma and flavour. The fruit and sourness take center stage making it light and refreshing for warm summer nights.
