English Ale


A tribute to the well-known bitters of English pubs across the pond, this beer features a distinct malty, toasted flavour and a medium body, showcasing a combination of five carefully selected hops and a nicely-balanced mild hop characteristic. Gold medal winner for Best Pale Ale in Atlantic Canada, 2016.

Dark Cream

DARK CREAM | ABV: 5.0% IBU: 20

Defying BJCP criteria, our Dark Cream Ale takes a traditional cream ale style and employs darker malts to achieve a more roasted profile, while maintaining a lighter body. Mildly hopped, with hints of chocolate and coffee, this beer presents itself with a creamy mouthfeel and gathers cult followings at pubs where it's regularly served.

Oatmeal Pale Ale


This traditional pale ale benefits from an addition of oatmeal making up 20% of its grain bill. A light golden colour and just enough hop bitterness is balanced by malty sweetness and a citrus aroma ranging from apricot, peach, or fresh cut summer grass depending on palate.

Hellbay IPA

Hellbay IPA | ABV: 6.3% IBU: 55

IPA the Hell Bay way! A bitter yet smooth IPA using generous amounts of quality hops throughout the brewing process and backed up with a solid malt base.

Specialty Beverages



This is a strong Scotch ale weighing in at 8% ABV, with rich, slightly sweet, malty and caramel flavours brought out by an extra-long boil. Subtle hints of smoke are detectable through very light hops. This classic wee heavy pays tribute to the Scottish beers of the past, and is brewed to style.



We were skeptical when approached by the Christmas Tree Association of Nova Scotia about making a balsam fir beer, but brewmaster Mark Baille hit the nail on the head with this fir-infused honey ale. A combination of original ideas and research into traditional Qubebecois methods of producing fir beer have turned out a light ale with subtle fir flavours that's both easy-drinking and innovative.
