We wanted to brew something a little richer and more malt-forward to sip by the fire this Fall, and we are very pleased with how it turned out.
Long Sleeves was brewed with 100% Ontario ingredients, including a small percentage of malt that we roasted ourselves to get a little more colour out of it. We're committed to using 100% Ontario malt in all our beers, but because there are no commercial malt roasters in Ontario, it has been a challenge to figure out how to brew a darker beer. We've enjoyed learning how to roast malt ourselves.
The hops in this beer come from VQH Farms in Southwestern Ontario.
This beer has a beautiful amber colour, with a toasty and biscuity flavour. It has a hint of sweetness balanced with just enough bitterness on the finish. Enjoy!
