On Tap

We refuse to filter the goodness out our beer, so each of our batches takes 18 to 30 days to brew, ferment and condition while the cloudiness gently disappears. This is slower than other breweries and it results in a slow produced beer that is wonderfully full of flavour from our fermentation stage. See what's currently available below, or check out all of our beers.

You Spin Me White Round

This is a Wheat IPA brewed at Big Spruce together with Sawdust City Brewing of Gravenhurst, Ontario. First brewed in February of 2014, it adds the body and head retention qualities of malted organic wheat to a traditional American style IPA recipe. First wort hopped with Magnum hops for a zesty apricot flavour, and finished with Chinook and Amarillo for flavour and aroma, this beer is unique.

ABV: 6.5%
