Silver-medal winner at the 2018 Canadian International Beer Awards for Best Friday Cask. A rich, dark stout with a thick, creamy head and full mouthfeel, having notes of coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate with background smoke character from our in-house-smoked flaked oats.
Gold-medal winner at the 2019 Canadian International Beer Awards for Rookie of the Year! This signature brown ale is a Prairie Dog crowd favourite, which features a load of Alberta barley malt overlaid with a huge dose of shredded coconut that we toast in house prior to infusing into the beer. Flavourful but still extremely well-balanced, the base beer is nutty with a chocolate finish. A small, late-boil hop charge adds subtle tropical notes that interplay with the coconut, and the slight bitterness added by the hops offer a counterpoint to the sweeter coconut flavours, making it easy to have more than one.
A variation of the classic Irish Red style, employing a hint of roasted barley for colour and taste atop a base of sweeter caramel malts with a deliberate underlying bitterness that keeps the beer palatable and adds a pleasant aftertaste, but includes a late dose of Chinook hops for a spicier, American-style finish.
