Ward 6: Amarillo Pale Ale - What a Difference a Hop Makes

Perhaps you’re sick and tired of being told what beer tastes like. Notes of this, aromas of that, esters, colours; we get it. Tastes are subjective – one person’s “bright citrus” is another person’s “too bitter.” That’s one of the beautiful aspects of brewing and drinking a variety of beers. This is especially true of our Ward Series single hop pale ales. The recipe doesn’t change with each new brew, only the hop does. Which means you get to experience how one hop differs from the next.

Ward 6: Amarillo Pale Ale pours light and hazy in your glass like all of its Ward predecessors, but the Amarillo hops shine through with delightful citrus and melon flavours on first tasting and a moderate bitterness on the finish. It’s the kind of beer you’ll want to drink more of. But we'll let you be the judge.

Luckily for you, we’ve got it in the fridge and on-tap now. Come and get some.

2017, We Bid You Adieu – And Give You Two New Beers

We are ending 2017 feeling incredibly grateful for all of the support you’ve shown us. We hope that gratitude has been expressed in everything we do. That’s certainly the goal around here. As Christmas and New Years are rapidly approaching, we’re releasing our two final beers of the year; Sokol Pilsner and Ward 5: Columbus Pale Ale.

Sokolnice is a village nestled in the barley growing region of Moravia, Czech Republic. It is also the birthplace of our co-owner, Susan’s father. Her dad is not only a fan of the Pilsner style that the old-country is famous for, but he was also instrumental in inspiring and encouraging Jeff (Susan’s husband and co-owner/brewer at Muddy York) to start brewing his own beer a decade ago. Sokol Pilsner is a tribute to him. It is light bodied with spicy and herbal notes and provides a perfect showcase for the noble Saaz hop.

Ward 5: Columbus Pale Ale is the fifth entry in our growing Ward Series of single hop pale ales. We tweaked the recipe a bit on the recently re-released Ward 2: Centennial Pale Ale and this new beer follows that formula but substitutes Columbus for Centennial and shows what a difference a hop can make. This one is dank, dank, and dank. So, if you like Dank, this is your jam.

Both are available on tap and in the retail fridge.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and thanks again for being such great people.

See you soon,
Muddy York Brewing Co.

It’s SMaSH Time

Ontario is well known for growing over fifty varieties of fruits and vegetables. We also produce a lot of maple syrup and honey as well as livestock, poultry, fish, legumes, and dairy products. The Niagara region has become famous for its wine production. “Hey Muddy York, stop boring me with your Ontario agriculture propaganda,” you’re probably snickering to yourself. “I want to read about beer and beer only. Beer. Beer. Beer.” Ok, we get it. But hang on, because, in just a second, we’re going to tell you about some Ontario agricultural information that we promise will result in beer.

Our good friends at VQH Farms are growing some truly spectacular hops here in Ontario. We’ve used their goods in many of our beers and we’re excited to tell you that we are re-releasing our Ward 2: Centennial Pale Ale with 100% Ontario-grown hops from VQH Farms and 100% Canadian grown barley. It’s a single malt, single hop pale ale (aka SMaSH beer) that pours a beautiful hazy yellow and boasts an irresistible lemony flavour profile.

It’s in the fridge and on tap here at the Muddy York Retail Store and Taproom now.

Cheers,
Muddy York Brewing Co.

Ward 4: A New Hop

A long time ago, in a brewery far, far away…

Actually, we bottled these suckers this morning, and we’re located in East York, but this new entry in our Ward Series could make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. Ward 4: Nelson Sauvin Pale Ale, made exclusively with Nelson Sauvin hops (help me Nelson Sauvin, you’re my only hop) and Canadian barley, really showcases the terroir of both; bringing out white grape, soft fruit, and grapefruit flavours.

When 5.6% ABV and 50 IBUs you reach…look as good you will not.

Come pick some up from the bottle shop while you’re out looking for power converters at Toshi Station.

May the 4th be with you, and the Ward 4 too.

Soak In Every Last Bit of Summer

G’day!

Boy, it’s been a hot one out there! That's why we’ve been working really hard to try to keep our retail fridge stocked with ice-cold hand-crafted beers. A new one to hit the inside of our ice box is Pavilion Pale Ale, a classic American pale ale that’s simple and clean. Hopped with a medley of cascade and centennial that imparts flower and citrus aromas with a moderate bitterness. So slap on your bathing costume, grab a cold one and soak up the sun!

Today our retail store is brimming with brews! We’re sure we’ve got a little something for everyone, but you can always check our Retail Store page to ensure we have your favourites in stock.

We’ll be taking part in the inaugural Leslieville Beer Fest August 27th! They'll be shutting down Dundas Street East for a good old fashioned neighbourhood street party! Regional brewers, local food and community artisans. And for all you Gaslight Helles Lager fans; we’ve got a new favourite t-shirt for you! In unisex AND a very attractive ladies fit. Available at the retail bottleshop.

Cheers, stay cool and see you soon!

Count-Down to Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day, eh!

First off, we at Muddy York Brewing Co. are really proud to be Canadian, it's truly the greatest country on earth, in our humble opinion! We are also super proud to be your independent, local brewery. It was only one short year ago, on Canada Day, that we hosted our first pop-up retail bottle-shop. As we've grown, we can now serve you on a full-time basis and we'll be open for Canada Day again!

Canada Day Weekend Hours:
Thursday June 30th - 11am - 7pm
Friday July 1st - 11am - 4pm
Saturday July 2nd - closed
Sunday July 3rd - closed

What will we have on offer? I know many of you have been asking for the return of our Muddy York Porter. We've heard you, and we'll have some bottled up! Also returning to the retail store is our Ward 3: Chinook Pale Ale. This is a single malt, single hop Pale Ale with 100% Canadian barley malt and 100% Ontario grown Chinook hops from VQH Farms. If that isn't Canada Day in a glass, I don't know what is. Along with those two exciting beers, we'll have our customer favourite Gaslight Helles and always refreshing Haberdasher Hefeweizen.

Cheers and have an excellent weekend!

From all of us at Muddy York Brewing Co.

P.S.
We also want to wish everyone a safe and fun-filled Pride Weekend. #loveislove

 

New Collaboration Beers; The Commonwealth Series

Salutations!

We’re stoked to announce our new line-up of collaboration beers this spring dubbed the Commonwealth Series. We’ve invited a few fellow craft brewers from the industry in to create a beer ‘Commonwealth’ of sorts. Why? Well, brewers have been sharing knowledge for centuries and collective brewing elevates quality for everyone involved. Working together for the common good is a key part of any successful community, and we want to contribute to that ideal!

The line-up includes ‘Buck 10’ a big Imperial Amber with 110 IBUs by Jeremy Coghill, owner of Lansdowne Brewery, ‘The Borough’ a citrusy American Pale Ale by the co-owner of The Borough gastro pub, Richard Zimmerman and a delightful Extra Special Bitter by homebrewer and GTA Brews club member, David Green called ‘Muddy Beagle’ (named after his adorable beagle pup). A fourth beer will be brewed in the coming weeks with Richard Sigesmund of The General Brewing Co. A 10% Imperial Stout named ‘Inkwell’ which debuted at last years Cask Days festival. We’ll be aging this one for 6 months in preparation for a special release sometime before Christmas.

Cheers!
From all of us at Muddy York Brewing Co.

p.s. If you're attending Society of Beer Drinking Ladies’ Bevy0026, you’ll get a sneak peak of Muddy Beagle E.S.B. on cask!!
