We’ve got a ton of great beers hitting LCBO, Grocery and Beer Store shelves this summer, but we’ve also been saving some truly amazing stuff just for the die-hards. This summer we’re unveiling FOUR brand new, once-in-a-lifetime Funk Lab beers!
Finally Coming Out of the Barrels!
With our brewers gaining more and more expertise with barrels every day, we’re finally ready to release some of our most complex barrel-aged beers yet. We’ll be dropping four new beers over five weeks, with very limited quantities available at our bottle shop. We’re also sending a few special kegs to a few special bars across the province. Here’s what we’ve got lined up for you lucky folks:
- Proud As Funk is a Flanders Blend of red and brown sour ales, aged for two years in oak barrels, blended, and then matured for an additional three months in the fermentor. We named this beer to celebrate our friends, family, loved ones and everyone who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ community. Love is Love, and we love this beer. – Available June 17
- With Glowing Hearts, brewed in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, is a Cherry Golden Sour. A sour golden ale was aged for two years in oak, before spending four months on Montmorency cherries, then bottle conditioning for an additional two months. – Available June 23
- Bastardized: Apricots is an Apricot Summer Stout. Light and fruit-forward at only 24IBU, this stout spent thee weeks on Apricot puree from Oregon, lending a distinct summer vibe. – Available July 7.
- Redshift is a Cherry Dark Sour, with funk and tart characters, distinct chocolate malts and a dark red fruit backbone. Named for a scientific phenomenon when light increases in wavelength and shifts to the red end of the spectrum. – Available July 14.
