Where the horizon awakens with a morning glow and the shorelines exhale out slow, there are stories sunken in Lake Erie below.
Paradise Lager
When Hiram Walker built the Lake Erie Railway, he built one track that specifically transported his workers to a place called “Paradise Grove”. Being right on the water and covered with green space, Walker established this area as prime real estate for vacationing. This is now modern-day Kingsville. We crafted this clean and crisp lager to reflect Walker’s intentions, giving our community a taste of paradise.

Farmerettes Peach Sour
During the labour shortage throughout WWII, young women across Ontario flocked to work on farms to help sustain the Canadian agriculture industry. Groups of “Farmerettes” maintained over 100 crop fields, including numerous peach orchards in Kingsville. Farmerettes spoke of basking in the Essex County sun together as new friendships unfolded, the same way you should enjoy this refreshing Kettle Sour. Here’s to the hardworking women who pushed social boundaries and fed our nation.

Wescott Cream Ale
Caroline Westcotts was an influential composer and businesswoman in Kingsville during the late 1800's. She orchestrated numerous community events and dance numbers, her most popular being the “Mettawas Waltz”. A straightforward dance for beginners that was filled with enough rhythm to delight professionals, Caroline created a routine that engaged everyone in the community. This medium-bodied, smooth, and tamed Cream Ale makes for a solid entry-level craft beer while satisfying those with experience – perfectly reflecting Mrs. Westcott’s intentions.

Private Beach Coffee Blonde
Weekend mornings in cottage country are very special. Views of an endless lake horizon, rare species of birds singing their waking songs, and a serene feeling of freedom. It's not uncommon to enjoy these moments with a beverage, around here it's either coffee or beer. This sweet and refreshing blonde is brewed with whole vanilla beans and coffee from Kingsville's own Red Lantern Coffee Co. Sit back and find peace with a pint of Private Beach.

George the Ghost Hefeweizen
If you know Kingsville, you know George. Haunting the King’s Hotel since the mid-1800s, the spirit of the sea captain has been a staple in local folklore. This one is for George, a classic Hefe, various sweet notes, and an appearance as hazy as the figure himself. Beware of trying to dissect and comprehend all the flavours… it may drive you mad.
4.2 ABV
  • Hint of Citrus and Clove • Hazy Gold Colour • Blood Orange Finish
Grove Banquet Lager
If you grow up in Essex County, making memories on Erie is inevitable. From attempting to catch a pickerel dinner, getting seasick on the Pelee Island ferry, or lounging in the bay with boaters alike; we are drawn to the lake in many ways. This lager is brewed with the Great Lakes in mind, fresh, crisp and easy to enjoy. We often take for granted what our region has to offer, but one thing's for certain, life on the lake prevails.

Division IPA
When Division Street was built, it was a cause for celebration! Being the first major street developed in the growing township of Kingsville, the community rejoiced as they were part of history in the making. This IPA is super hop-forward, mimicking the turbulent characteristics mentioned above. Rich aromatics and notes of tropical fruit provide your palate with an experience similar to the persistence of our town's spirit, unique and gratifying since 1901.

  • Full Body with a Clean Bitter Finish • Copper Colour • Medium Hop Aroma
Lupulin APA
Imagine being a general labourer during the birth of the industrial revolution. Now image the pure bliss of taking a vacation from that. When Hiram Walker shuttled his workers by locomotive from Walkerville to “Paradise Grove”, the workers experienced something quite similar to the “Lupulin Effect”. An active ingredient in this beer’s hops, Lupulin stimulates the mind and creates senses of euphoria, friendliness, reduced anxiety, and a craving for more. As Walker’s workers step foot onto the train, they emitted these exact feelings in anticipation for their week of leisure to come. Crack this can, and it’s all aboard the Lupulin Express.
5% ABV
  • Hint of Citrus and Clove • Hazy Gold Colour • Blood Orange Finish
Clubhouse Oatmeal Stout
Ruthless and relentless, the young ruffians of Clubhouse No. 2 certainly paint a more ominous picture of Kingsville. Although robberies to arson were common among the group, these boys were notorious for digging up graves and displaying them outside the clubhouse, dressing skeletons in full suits to deter visitors. This pitch black oatmeal stout was crafted to acknowledge our past, and that every history has a dark side.
4.7 ABV
  • Full Body • Caramel Coffee Flavours • Deep Black Colour
