1933 Oktoberfest Lager - Now Available!
Known for its serenity and family-friendly lifestyle, Kingvillians actively protested against any rum-running activity from Windsor bleeding into their town during the early 20th century. To their relief, the black market came to a permanent halt on December 5th, 1933 when the U.S ended its nation-wide alcohol ban. Every year we present this Oktoberfest Lager to celebrate the legalization of alcohol and the part our region played during the Prohibition Era. Light copper in colour, rich German malt flavours, and a clean crisp finish, this lager defines freedom.

Greatest Hit's Pale Ale
We've all shared that feeling. Falling in love with a new song or discovering a new artist. It's a rush that's difficult to explain, an instant mental connection met with that physical sensation in your chest. Here are 12 artists who can undoubtedly cultivate that feeling. The best part is they're all born and bred in Windsor Essex, which means you can find them frequently playing live right here at our brewery. Local artists deserve a solid local ingredient, which is why we brewed this Pale Ale with Essex County-grown Sasquatch hops. Listen to the Greatest Hits Playlist here

Swarm Season Hazy IPA
Fishflies, Mayflies, June bugs, or Hexagenia limbata, whatever you call them... they're here. There's no denying it, the annual invasion of these vermin can surely be a summer buzz-kill. Together, we can seek refuge in this fresh, fruity and pleasantly-hopped Summer Session IPA. Take a deep breath, keep the patio lights to a minimum, call first dibs on your uncle's power washer, and crack open a can of Swarm Season until it all blows over... until next year.

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.

Workhorse Brown Ale - Now Available!
Meet North and South, two infamous workhorses known for assisting in the construction of modern-day Kingsville. The brute strength and determination of these noble creatures were heavily relied on during a time without engines. With a solid backbone of malty flavours and an extra kick of caffeine, this beer represents the highly respected work ethic of North and South. Without them, the town may have been lost.

Keeper Black Lager - Now Available!
Vigilant in the most challenging circumstances, W.H. Black stood from 1902 -1925, guiding mariners safely to Kingsville. During crusades. Perhaps wary at first glance to the typical lager drinker, fear not, this beer is crisp and clean with hints of earthy and coffee flavours. Don't let the darkness overwhelm you, for there is a glimmer of light in the distance.

Clubhouse 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.

Henderson Jacobs Honey Kolsch - Now Available!
Essex County was a destination on the famous Underground Railroad. Henderson's and Jacobs, two former slave families, crossed the Great Lakes together to gain freedom, settling on their own 2nd and 3rd concession Gosfield Township properties. Hiram Walker rented rail line rights of way across Black owned farms to Paradise Grove, purchased their crops for his distillery and hired them to work at the Mettawas Hotel. Carving out a new life was hard, but rewarding. The Henderson’s, George and Catherine, were UGRR Conductors helping “The Black Thread in the Canadian Tapestry” settle in. Jacobs Farms produced honey. Jack Miner School is located on their former farmland. Henderson Jacobs is a honey-based brew that frees your senses and satisfies your palate.

Grove Banquet
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.
