As vintage as vintage gets.
This 150 year-old best bitter recipe uses ingredients brought to the region by the United Empire Loyalists in the 1700s that are still grown locally today. The simple complexity of this brilliant, golden ale recaptures a time of shared purpose and honest reward.
Taste: Earthy and slightly floral on the nose with notes of Sauvignon blanc. A malty, biscuit and pie-crust body. Hints of hazelnut and caramel with a crisp, dry finish.
Rediscovering long-lost ingredients.
When the Loyalists landed in what became Kingston back in 1784, they brought with them their own beer and brewing ingredients. Fast forward several hundred years when a local farmer discovered a variety of hop growing wild near his fields. After some investigation, our brewmaster realized this species was not native to the area, and that it had been brought to the region by the Loyalists who had farmed the hop as an ingredient for making their beer. We nicknamed it the “Loyalist Hop” and today, we’re the only brewer using it – it’s the signature ingredient in our Proper English Ale, a Loyalist’s beer through and through.
“It was so exciting to discover this heritage ingredient—what’s become our very own Loyalist Hop—and that we were actually able to use it to recreate this best bitter, our Proper English Ale.”
~ Trevor Lehoux, Brewmaster
Perfectly executed! Hands down one of the best stouts I’ve ever had! A stout that doesn’t awkwardly fill you up, and leaves you wanting more!
Amber 6.6 is seriously about the best that’s out there right now. Perfectly balanced. Properly brewed! So glad you delivered to North Bay.
I had the Sol Juice on a Kingston patio and want more!
Tried (the Lemon Shandy) for the first time. Sooo good!
Sol Juice IPA = excellent. All other beers were quite good. Friendly front-of-house staff. I will be back!
Great tripel by a craft brewery, very Belgian style. Has the banana I like and no boozy taste. Sneaky and dangerous!
The whiskey finish is quite apparent. A very decent amber!
