Many Beers, Many Vessels, Three Years of Muddy York

This year, on March 3rd, Muddy York Brewing is celebrating its 3rd Anniversary with a big old party. We will be releasing TWO new beers:

1) Our Barrel-Aged Plank Road Baltic Porter has been napping in a Tawny Port Barrel awaiting this day. It’s a medium-bodied, elegantly mellow 8.5% ABV, and tastes vinous and oaky with warm notes of alcohol, Port, and dark licorice. It will be available in 355mL bottles, and there’s a limit of six per person.

2) Infinite Zest is a collaboration between Muddy York Brewing and Sawdust City. Sam Corbeil drove down from Gravenhurst a couple of months back with some great ideas. The result is a Belgian White IPA with Lime Zest and Idaho 7. For you lit geeks, it’s named after David Foster Wallace’s epic 1996 novel, Infinite Jest. For you LIT beer geeks, this is a clean, bright, Belgian style IPA with big, big, notes of lime due to copious amounts of added lime zest. It is hopped with piney, tropical, citrusy, Idaho 7 and tastes like the best dream you ever had, then woke up, went back to sleep, and had that same exact dream again.

In addition to the new releases, we’ll have extra-special beers on cask, sliders and salads courtesy of Knuckle Sandwich, some magical entertainment by @christine_lynn_magic and, for the first time in our three-year history, 473mL cans of Gaslight Helles Lager.

Barrels, Casks, Bottles, Cans, and Sliders. Bring your party shoes.

Cheers,

From all of us at Muddy York Brewing Co.

Commonly Uncommon Brick Maker Common

Howdy!

Commonly uncommon and 100% unique, Brick Maker Common finds it’s way back to the retail store today. What is a Common? The California Common or steam beer style is brewed with a special strain of lager yeast that ferments at ale temperatures. This method dates back to the late 1800’s in California when refrigeration was a great luxury. The brewers back then had to improvise to cool the beer down, so shallow fermenters were used. So in a way the lager yeast was trained to ferment quicker at warmer temperatures. This yeast provides a beautiful array of fruity esters in the aroma and we’ve balanced this with the woody and sometimes mint flavours of Northern Brewer hops.

If you want to get a jump on your holiday shopping, we also have a selection of merchandise to please all the craft beer lovers in your life. Glassware, t-shirts, socks, beer soap, hoodies and more!

Visit our retail bottle shop or find our brews on tap at some of the fine establishments that carry Muddy York.

Cheers!

P.S.
This weekend we will also be peddling our goods (but sadly not our beer) at Earl Beatty Public School in support of Holiday in the 'Hood. There will be an artisan market, bake sale, Santa Photos, kids activities and general good cheer! Proceeds support “Play Hard For Our Yard” a revitalization of the school playground.

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.
