We all have our favorites at the bar or at the liquor store: the go-to, the old familiar, the first love. With the sheer volume of tributaries, it can be intimidating to branch out from familiar territory. To this end, it can be easy to let preference sway the craft beer drinker into only ever enjoying one or two styles of beer, to the exclusion of the vast wealth of other styles. If we never leave the well-trodden path we may never be treated with the joy of the unexpected discovery…
Avec un certain nombre de créations à son actif, l’équipe a décidé d’étendre ses horizons en travaillant avec des ingrédients atypiques. Cette démarche a mené à diverses expérimentations dont notre Porter Fumé à l’Érable. L’utilisation d’un malt fumé (British Peated) et d’une bonne dose de sirop d’érable a permis l’élaboration de ce Porter au reflet rouge/orangé. “boucane” offre des saveurs complexes de fumée, de sous-bois et d’épices. La bière a été embouteillée à la fin du mois d’avril. Taux d’alcool approximatif: 5,9%
After having crafted a certain number of beers, the team decided to push its boundaries by employing atypical ingredients. This led to a variety of experiments, including our Smoked Maple Porter. The use of British Peated malt combined to an healthy dose of maple sirup resulted in this reddish glowing Porter. “boucane” offers complex aromas of smoke, leafs and spices. It was bottled in late april. Alcohol: around 5,9%
Sounds like this micro brew would be great over pancakes. Cool little nanobrewery operating near Ottowa, Canada. The scribbly wolf logo looks great on these homespun, minimalist labels.
One of my favorite porters of all time, Edmund Fitzgerald by Great Lakes Brewing Company. This beer taught me that beer is more than just Bud Light and Miller Lite.

Begyle Brewing was named best new craft brewery by Chicago Magazine. We still need to try their beer but we keep hearing great things from down the hop vine. Plus just look at that awesome logo.
Begyle launched via a Kickstarter fund and have plans for a beer CSA, which sounds absolutely excellent.
