After spending long hours and many a sleepless night, the students of the Olds College Brewmaster program are pleased to present your palate with their Toils of Study. A refreshing hop forward and yet extremely approachable amber-coloured ale.

Dank and citrusy hops are backed by a toasty caramel malt body with hints of bready overtones. Aggie Ale is generously hopped with a blend of Pacific Northwest style hops throughout the brewing process to let you know what the students are all about.  Pairs perfectly with a completed midterm.

Prairie Gold

Description

Hops, hops, hops, and did you say you wanted some hops?  This Pacific Northwest-styled IPA combines a full, malty backbone to balance an aggressive hopping schedule. Caramel and light, bready flavours from the malts intermingle with the powerful citrus, resin, and tropical fruit character of the hops. An intensely hoppy beer elegantly balanced for quaffability.

The Lion, The WIT and the Wardrobe

Description

This Belgian-style witbier was brewed under the “Be The Brewer” contest in cooperation with Alberta Beer Festivals. Keeping true to style, we used over 50% unmalted wheat and oats. We veered from tradition, however,and used Gains of Paradise instead of coriander to obtain a zesty, pink-peppercorn-like spiciness.

Both sweet and bitter orange peels providea moderate citrus burst, and chamomile lends light floral notes. The authentic Belgian yeast we used gives this beer a light fruitiness with a mildly tart finish. We’d be LION if we told you not to drink responsibly and keep your WITs about you.

Description

Description

Every sip of our Pile Driver Double IPA hits the tongue with a heavy dose of hops and drives the flavour deep into your taste buds. Liberal use of hops late in the boil and dry-hopping creates flavours of syrupy mango and papaya with hints of passion fruit.  Light sweetness and creamy mouthfeel conceal the power within.

 

Availability

Pile Driver is currently sold out, but due to demand will be brewed again soon and will be available to purchase in our retail store this summer.
