SSMS bottles return Wednesday 8/24.
This week we are also brewing a new beer we’re quite excited about: “37th St NEW WORLD PILS”. The ying to 19-33’s yang, 37th St is brewed with all US ingredients, emphasizing fruity hopping. Very much true to pilsner guidelines, but not.
In other news, The Tragically Hip, a great Canadian band we’re all fans of played a farewell concert Saturday night given the tragic news of lead singer Gord Downie’s terminal brain cancer diagnosis. It was historic and inspirational, so much so that we will be brewing a beer in tribute – “SKIES ALL SMOKY BLUE-GREEN” IPA.
All proceeds with be going to the Gord Downie Foundation. We’ll be launching this brew in Toronto during a cask festival we’ll be featured at October 20th, with additional kegs available to select retailers. Care to donate? Please click here

It was a looooong challenging week getting our three new 90 bbl tanks into the brewery (a “bbl” is an industry unit of measure. One bbl = 31 gallons, you can do the math on 90 bbls but it’s a lot of liquid). It’s done and we are very pleased not only with the result, but also with the fact that the increase in capacity will mean more FULL-STACK, HALF-STACK, SOFTLY SPOKEN MAGIC SPELLS and WEIRD & GILLY.
This week we upgraded our capacity, and added (3) new 90bbl fermentors. What does that mean, exactly? We can now produce about 20% more beer than before, and that means more beer for you. It wasn’t easy, but “mastery knows no shortcuts”, and all that jazz.
IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? IPA bottles available Wednesday 7/20 (bottled the same day). Next week FULL-STACK IIPA bottles will be available.
Thursday CHERRY KIM is fresh on tap.
And… our A/C should be up and running by this upcoming heat wave!
We’re working furiously to get these up and running in our Tap Room before the next heat wave hits, we’ll keep you posted but one thing is for sure – the beer is cold as always.
