Draught List

 

QUENCHING

Softly spicy and fruity German- and Belgian-style wheat beers

Blanche de Chambly (QC; 5% alc.)
A light and refreshing Belgian-style wheat beer accented by the addition of coriander and orange peel.
Erdinger Weissbier (Germany; 5.3% alc.)
Arguably the most popular German wheat beer in existence, Erdinger has notes of banana, clove and caramel.

CRISP

Dry, refreshing and moderately bitter to appetizingly hoppy lagers

Hacker-Pschorr Edelhell (Germany; 5.5% alc.) 
With a sweet bready aroma, this dry, golden refresher tastes familiar, but better. 
Tooth and Nail Vim and Vigor (ON; 5.2% alc.)
The very best pilsner being brewed in Ontario comes from this Ottawa brewery that has beerbistro roots.

SOUR

Acidic ales ranging from sweet-tart to suck-your-face-in

Duchesse de Bourgogne (Belgium; 6.2% alc.) 
A surprising aroma of balsamic vinegar gives way to smooth and sweet flavours of Concord grape and oak.

SOCIABLE

Medium bodied, wonderfully balanced ales and lagers

Anchor Steam Beer (CA; 4.9% alc.)
This revolutionary lagered ale has a biscuit malt profile and round fruitiness while still keeping a crispness of character.
Brooklyn Lager (NY; 5.2% alc.)
A clean and malty amber-gold lager generously dry-hopped for floral aromas.
Shillow Beer Co. Sass on the Side (ON; 5.6% alc.) 
A beerbistro exclusive. This brown ale is lightly roasty and modestly bitter with a quenching off-dry finish.

BOLD

Ales with a moderate to full bitterness and a naturally fruity hop character

Collective Arts Surround Sound (ON; 8.2% alc.)
A double-dry-hopped double IPA brewed with different hops for each batch. Ask which edition we’re currently pouring.
Rainhard Armed 'N Citra (ON; 5.2% alc.)
A dry-hopped pale ale from Toronto’s Stockyards that’s got a brisk bitterness with a punch of lemon and mango.
Sawdust City Lone Pine IPA (ON; 6.5% alc.)
For all you fans of resinous, piney, bitter IPAs, this is the beer you’ve been looking for.
Shillow Beer Co. Ahtanum Leaves IPA (ON; 7.1% alc.)
A generously malty IPA brewed with the remaining stock of the now-retired Ahtanum hop. Get it while it lasts.

SATISFYING

Gently bitter and chocolaty or roasty ales, porters and stouts

Deschutes Black Butte Porter (OR; 5.2% alc.)
The world-leading Oregon beer scene began in part with this beer. Smooth, creamy with notes of chocolate and coffee.
Junction Stationmaster’s Stout (ON; 4.3% alc.)
A dry stout brewed in the classic Irish style with mild roasted malt and coffee notes.

SPICY

Well-rounded, naturally spicy and warming ales and lagers

À Tout le Monde (QC; 4.5% alc.) 
This Belgian-style saison was brewed in conjunction with the band Megadeath and is paradoxically light and spritzy.
La Chouffe (Belgium; 8% alc.)
A strong blonde with a complex blend of pear, apple, citrus and peppery notes and a distinct hoppiness.

ROBUST 

Rich and warming ales with a full maltiness and impressive complexity

Chimay Red (Belgium; 7% alc.)
Brewed by the same community of Cistercian monks for 150 years, this ale is plummy with notes of honey and banana.
Grimbergen Dubbel (Belgium; 6.5% alc.)
A great example of the classic Belgian “Double” style of beer. Chocolatey, smooth, fruity and soft.

FRUITY

Ales fermented or finished with real fruits or fruit juices

Lindemans Kriek (Belgium; 3.5% alc.)
Loads of real cherry juice make this traditionally-brewed lambic prodigiously fruity and sweet with a slight tart edge.
