Malt is the base of every beer. Malt is grain that has been germinated and then dried. We use many different types of malt to give body, color and flavor to the beer.

Pale ale, Amber, Sour & Cara malts

Aaahhh… hops. We love them! Hops are flowers used primarily as a bittering, flavouring, and stability agent in beer. In our beers most hops add floral and fruity flavours and aromas.

Cascade & Chinook hops

Now, a question of etiquette – as you pass someone in the airplane, do you give them the ass or the crotch? Laugh not, dear friend, because with social media, special interest groups and #metoo hanging over all our heads, how you decide to shimmy at 35,000 feet could alter the course of space and time. To help you ponder where you stand on the ass/crotch axis, we brewed this berry bombastic and big-thinking barley wine. A thick, thick and philosophical beer that will help you ponder what you want. Because remember what the doorman said: “If you don’t know what you want, you end up with a lot you don’t.” Fly safe and scamper smart.

This Eisbocked Barleywine holds an ABV percentage of a whopping 16.1%! That, of course, is quite high and we recommend taking the Question of Etiquette slow to enjoy the intense flavors and aromas this Barleywine releases when opened. Normally we’d say drink our beers cold, but with this big boy you might want to lead it breathe for a while so it warms up to about 15 to 16 degrees. Somewhat colder than room temperature. If you drink this Barleywine straight out of the fridge, the coldness of the beer might hide some flavors that you would taste when it’s a little less cold. The Question of Etiquette is available now!
