Gravenhurst, Ontario – This year’s 11.05 presents a deep, burnt ruby red, with aromas of candied fruit, dates, cherries and just a touch of fresh oak. Effervescent with a big malty finish, this massive ale hides its elevated alcohol content quite well.  A slight acidity helps promote the drinkability, while the beer displays flavours of sweet malt upfront, spicy European hops through the middle and ending with a light fruity finish.

Known as 11.05, the beer has become a tradition between brewmasters and friends Ryan Morrow (Nickel Brook) and Sam Corbeil (Sawdust City), who share the November 5 birthday.

During the month of November $1 of every 11.05 can and glass sold in The Saloon, supports Crafting a Cure and JDRF.

This year’s 11.05 is now available at the brewery, online store, on tap in The Saloon and coming soon to select bars in Ontario.
