SEASONAL offerings


Theory of relativity

Style: Oktoberfest Lager ABV: 5.5% IBU: 18

Some say two heads are better than one.  We teamed up with our friends at the Tartan Tusk to roast and blend 200 kg of fresh Ontario grown peaches for this one-of-a-kind brew.  Lactose and roasted peaches give the beer a sweeter finish and makes it the perfect ending to a great summer on the shores of Lake Huron. Best enjoyed the way it was made - with friends, around a roaring fire.

Canada’s largest salt mine resides just south of the Grey Matter Beer Company brewery in the town of Goderich.
