PALE ALE, 5%


Black Oak Pale AleOur Pale Ale is a cross between a traditional British Pale Ale and the modern American Pale Ale.  We use premium Canadian two row malt, three select specialty imported malts and lots of hops. This brew pours a golden amber colour with an aroma blend of citrus and breadiness. It has a medium body, mild carbonation and a refreshing hop finish. This brew was one of the flagship Black Oak beers back when Ken opened up the brewery in 1999. Pick it up year-round in 473mL single cans at LCBO’s, 6-packs in Beer Stores, at our brewery bottle shop in both the 473mL cans & 6-pack formats and on tap at craft-beer friendly establishments.

TEN BITTER YEARS IMPERIAL IPA, 8%


10-Bitter-Years-front (2)To celebrate our 10th Year Anniversary in 2009, Ken wanted to put out a hoppy, bitter brew as a witty way to commemorate a decade of survival in the craft brewing industry. The result? Our 10 Bitter Years Imperial IPA. This strong brew pours a burnt orange colour and has a fresh, bright citrus and tropical fruit aroma.  This beer is double dry hopped using three different varieties of North American hops leading to a full flavour of bitter pine and citrus. Although it packs a good hoppy punch, it finishes as smooth as possible for the style, with just enough alcohol warmth to enhance the flavour. Pick it up year-round in 650mL single bottles at LCBO’s, at our bottle shop and on tap at craft-beer friendly establishments.
