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,

Plank Road Baltic Porter

Salutations craft beer lovers!

We are very excited for our special event this week to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary, as well as the release of a new beer. On Thursday, February 9th from 6pm-2am, Muddy York will be taking over 9 taps at Lake Inez, a recently opened restaurant and bar at 1471 Gerrard St. E. in Toronto. We really hope you can join us!

To mark the occasion, we concocted a new brew called Plank Road Baltic Porter. This is a stronger, more refined version of a porter that comes in at 8.8%. We’ve lagered this beer for over 2 months at just above freezing, to produce a very smooth and mellow character despite it’s higher ABV. It has a silky, full body with plenty of malt character. This character is complimented by a noticeable vinous quality with notes of cocoa and sweet coffee, finishing with a pleasant alcohol warmth. Taste this new beauty at Lake Inez first!

Now, a little background on plank roads in our fine city. Plank roads were once dirt and mud paths that were covered with wooden planks. Built for wagons, it was a great improvement in transportation, often built by turnpike companies (i.e., first examples of toll roads!!!) The Don and Danforth Plank Road Company built Danforth Ave in 1851, connecting it to Broadview Ave and creating a viable route to surrounding communities.

Hoping to see you all soon!
From all of us at Muddy York Brewing Co.
