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.

Style: Star Anise & Tangerine Dark Lager
Brewery: Common Good
ABV / IBU: 5%
Introducing “Star Appeel” Dark Lager 5% (with tangerine and star anise). For this brew Common Good Brewery brewed up a unique dark lager to help get us through the cold winter months.
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 brown with orange hues 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 tap room and bottle shop in very limited quantities and by the pint or growler. Also look out for it in draught format in the coming weeks at prestige craft beer bars across Toronto.
Livin' La Vida Mocha
Style: Mocha Coffee Porter
Brewery: Junction Craft Brewery
ABV / IBU: 4.1%
The coffee blend used is sourced from the Las Rosas Women’s coffee project. This is a cooperative of over 400 women in Colombia who aim to prioritize gender equality and promote leadership positions on coffee farms.
We've also used cacao from @chocosoltraders, which is directly sourced from Indigenous communities!
It's available in the Junction taproom, retail store, and online through their website.
