New beers coming soon

We are waiting for these new beers to come in…
__________________________________________________________________
Moralité 6.9%

The concept of Morality is perhaps a subjective one, as the history of alcohol in Quebec may demonstrate. This IPA is brewed with a dare-we-say excessive quantity of Simcoe, Citra and Centennial hops. The dry finish is highly aromatic and slightly resinous, invoking tropical fruits atop dominant hop bitterness. Slight sweetness from the malts and a lot of grapefruity tartness.
__________________________________________________________________
Tree Hugging wood chopping mother nature Loving IPA 6,0%

We all should hug a tree more often. That’s a scientific fact. Now you can conveniently and safely do it without stepping in to the wild and face bears and other scary things. Just sip this beautifully balanced IPA, which has been matured on a bed of American Oak chips.
Brewed with Centennial, Mosaic and Citra hops it delivers very fresh citrus taste, which is nicely combined with pine tree flavour, and then followed by malty backbone. The long lasting after taste comes with hints of wood and vanilla.

Dr. Caligari 6,1%

More German sour experiments! Italian take on the Berliner Weizen style, showcasing ridiculous amount of raspberries, making this a “doppel and/or imperial berliner weizen”. Intense fresh and sour flavour with real berry and citrus taste.
