Ales are our jam and that leaves us tons of room for creativity. As our Alesmiths Rick & Sloane wrestle yeast, manipulate temperatures, and choose grains & hops, they do it in a way they think locals will appreciate. They believe hard work tastes better and put a whole lot of effort making sure that comes through in every sip. We are a small batch brewery so on any given day you may find three, four or even eight of the brews below on tap but rarely all. Plan on dropping in often!
A full-bodied, dark red ale. Lightly hopped to highlight its earthy tones, our flagship brew is characterized by warm maltiness and hints of caramel. All this coupled with a creamy finish make the Honourable Member Red popular whenever and wherever people gather.
The Half an Enchilada IPA is a full-bodied local favorite and our main-stay IPA. Brewed with a specially chosen blend of hops to bring notes of citrus, pine, and subtle pepper and balanced with a maltiness that result in a deliciously unique and characterful IPA.
A local taproom favourite, Picadilly Pale Ale is anything but light on flavour. Moderately hopped and carefully balanced, it is crisp and thirst-quenching, with hints of stone fruit and pine. A clean, refreshing finish and lingering lacing on your glass will have you calling for another.
Velvety, roasty, and robust, this milk stout is a love letter to local. Infused with Picadilly Coffee Roaster Dark Hollows beans soaked in Sussex Craft Distillery Golden Rum. This smooth black aromatic brew converts many a coffee lover - join the dark side for a deliciously irresistible experience.
The Bay Trippin' Blonde is a light-bodied mildly hopped blonde ale with subtle spice, delicate floral notes, and a crisp finish. Versatile enough to pair with everything from Barbequed Brats to fresh Lobster. Perfect for warm summer days along the Bay of Fundy and beyond.
LBS Kölsch is a german styled beer brewed to deliver notes of spice and fruitiness like an ale with a crisp, clean finish of a lager. Brewed in homage - both to the original German brewmasters and to our neighbour and Local Bike Shop, Outdoor Elements. (47)
Fair to Middlin' Blueberry Berlinerweiss is a refreshing German-style wheat sour beer. With a beautiful purple hue of the real fruit purée that also lends a touch of sweetness and a beautiful aroma to balance the mouth-puckering sourness. Undoubtedly delicious and refreshingly tart.
A traditional German Gose. This sour beer has hints of saltiness and coriander. With its clean finish, it is great on its own or as the perfect base for fruit purees like raspberry, blueberry, and peach.
A golden SMaSH (single malt, single hop) ale made with english malt and hops. A well balanced beer that is bright,
crisp and slightly bitter - just like Rick’s gram Eva - who came to Sussex as a war bride after WWII.
These specialty beers only make their appearance at specific times of year. Catch them while you can!
Brewed for Valentine's Cutie Pie Strawberry Rhubarb Berlinerweiss is a refreshing German-style wheat sour beer. With a beautiful pink hue from the real fruit purée that also lends a touch of sweetness and a beautiful aroma to balance the mouth-puckering sourness. Undoubtedly delicious and refreshingly tart.
(pronounce “slan-che”) - literally translates to “health” and is a common drinking toast in Ireland. A dark, red Irish beer with some roasty, caramel notes and a dry finish. Slightly more bitter than our more English style red, The Honourable Member.
White Out Hefeweizen is a refreshing light wit beer with a spicy aroma of cloves and banana. Light in colour but full bodied and delighful.
Rick can still hear his dad's voice bellowing "Hop To It!" when he is working away. This DIPA will most certainly put a little hop in your day. It is full bodied and balanced with a blend of magnum, centennial, and cascade hops. For that aromatic punch, the brew is dry hopped Czech Saaz hops. This brew makes its appearance every year around Easter.
A malty english brown that hits a bit sweet on the palate with nutty characteristics and a low degree of bitterness.
Dry hopped with Canada’s own Sasquatch hops, this west coast style IPA boasts a bold hop profile of woodsy, resinous and bitter orange flavours. Perfect for toasting a long day of conquering the outdoor elements and winter adventures.
A unique pumpkin pastry ale. It starts off sweet and malty, then you start picking up a special blend of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, the earthiness of pumpkin andSasquatch hops from BC, all with the buttery richness of pie pastry. When served in our taproom we offer it withthe glass rimmed with pumpkin pie spice and raw sugar - adding a subtle and spicy sweetness.
Brewed for the holidays, we made sure this Blonde Ale was a crowd pleasing approachable style. An easy-drinking beer without any dominating malt or hop characteristics which clears the way for the juiciness of the added cranberry (grown locally at Sunberry in Maugerville) and the festive red tinge it brings.
These are very limited edition beers that may be in the vault for some time before they reappear. That's what makes them so special!
A base of wheat, oats and barley finished with fresh orange peel and coriander. This is a refreshing wheat beer with a slight spiciness and citrus aroma. Brewed only three times in early 2022 in partnership with Ukrainian Craft Brewery @pravdabeer to support the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. The label was artwork is compliments of local artist Joëlle Martin of Mon Pré Collections.
Created in celebration of Hogmanay - the Scots word for December 31st, the last day of the year. This seasonal is dark, malty, and herbaceous. A Scottish Wee Heavy Gruit Beer isn't hopped but rather takes its flavour from rosemary, heather and yarrow all sourced from our friends at Winterwood Natural Foods on Broad Street right here in town. Only 100 specially labelled and wax dipped bottles were available in December 2021.
A stroke of inspiration from a foggy morning and a bag of rye grains. This hazy, copper coloured ale has a rich and creamy head. It boasts a smokey rye flavour, slightly spicy, mild sweetness and a fragrance of Heather.
