Hop Lovers Rejoice

Today we are celebrating the re-release of our much-beloved Dereliction Double IPA. Absent from our fridge since the beginning of 2017, you hop loving people now have cause to be very happy. Clocking in at 8.2% ABV and 110 IBU, Dereliction DIPA pours a rich golden colour, tastes like a dank pine forest, and has a hop-forward character, in both aroma and flavour. Brewed with Summit, Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus hops, it is well-balanced and drinks more like a classic west-coast IPA than the high ABV rating would suggest. That being said, the label doesn’t lie, this is a strong, delicious, beer.

It’s on tap and in the fridge now.

This holiday season we are collecting food for Second Harvest Food Rescue and raising money for Dixon Hall. Dixon Hall serves more than 10,000 people annually, impacting the lives of the most vulnerable and the most at-risk members of our community. Please consider bringing a few items or extra funds with you the next time you’re in the neighbourhood. We thank you!

See you soon,
Muddy York Brewing Co.

Refuel With R-100 I.P.A.

By jove, just when you thought we were done with new releases, another one comes out of nowhere! Alright, full disclosure here, we are just bursting at the seams with hoppy goodness here at Muddy York HQ and quite frankly we are running out of room in our hop freezer. Necessity is the mother of invention, so a brand new intensely hopped beer was created! Introducing our latest release R-100 I.P.A. This is a big one at 7% and 70 IBUs. Magnum, Topaz and Equinox give this beer substantial hop flavour with notes of tropical fruit.

If you are wondering what the heck the R-100 was, let us fill you in. In 1930 a British built dirigible – large helium or hydrogen airship – crossed the Atlantic and circled Toronto’s skyline. As you can imagine the citizens at the time had never seen anything like it! Work stopped, traffic halted and rooftops were packed to catch a glimpse of this massive humming flying machine. Airplanes at the time, were small, cramped, and only capable of short flights. Dirigibles, by comparison, had the potential to fly for days without stopping for fuel. The R-100 lifespan was short lived, and was later scrapped after the sister ship, R-101 crashed in France en route to India, ending Britain’s Imperial Airship scheme.

Drop into the retail store to have a sample and perhaps pick up a few bottles of this colossal beer!

Take care y’all!

From all of us at Muddy York Brewing Co.

p.s. We'll be at Torontoberfest Thanksgiving Day – The Brewer’s Backyard returns for the final event of the year, at Evergreen Brick Works on Monday, October 10th. All ages, delicious sausages and great beer!!

The Beer is Almost Here

After a not-so-long summer that has come and gone, we've been left wondering, "what the heck happened?" I know it flew by for us.

During the course of the last month or so I've been breaking in my system. Ironing out the kinks and pushing it in a calculated way to see what kind of beer this little brewhouse of ours is going to produce. Well, if I may say so myself, damn good beer (to borrow a phrase from our friends at Amsterdam). Calibrating the efficiencies, adjusting hop additions, practicing transfers and dialing in the flow of a typical brew day has been fun but not without it's share of outrageous mishaps. I've learned to regard rubber boots, safety glasses and heat resistant gloves as my best friends. Having worked through this testing phase, I'm feeling confident that I'll be able to deliver the kind of beer I've always wanted Muddy York Brewing Co. to bring to the table.

Our good friends and colleagues at some local breweries have been kind enough to supply us with some very healthy yeast, a critical component in making great beer, and for that I am truly grateful. I'm always inspired by the generosity of the brewing community, homebrewing and now professional, and how people are always willing to help out and offer advice to one another. It's these people and this attitude that really makes this community a very special one. I hope to continue paying it forward as others have done for me.

So ready your pint glasses beer lovers, the beer is almost here.
