Saint of Circumstance

blonde-ale

4.7% ABV • 19 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Saint of Circumstance is our go-to, easy drinking, any occasion brew. We started by creating this tasty blonde ale using wheat for its lemony flavour and added Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We took it to a whole new level by adding the zest of seasonal citrus. The result, a remarkably refreshing and balanced citrus blonde ale.

Hazy State

india-pale

4.1% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

This hugely flavourful, yet extremely sessionable Double Dry-Hopped IPA is made with 16 grams per litre of Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic and Centennial hops. Citrus and Tropical fruit notes dominate, but is also balanced with a smooth body that makes this one super easy drinking IPA.

Ransack the Universe

india-pale

6.8% ABV • 85 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Galaxy hops from Myrtleford, Victoria in Australia and Mosaic hops from Yakima, Washington, USA, deliver aromas and flavours of tropical fruits, mango and citrus. Light malt body lets the hops shine through, and finishes crisp but not bitter. A hemispheric hop mashup.

Life in the Clouds

india-pale

6.1% ABV • 50 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Life in the Clouds is our flagship New England style IPA. After experimenting with the Collective Seasonal HAZY IPA we dialed in the Simcoe and Mosaic hops and malt balance to optimize this juicy IPA's pleasantly fruit forward (think citrus and melon) taste and aroma. In keeping with the nouveau NEIPA tradition, Life in the Clouds is an unfiltered beer, neither overly-sweet nor bitter, with a pillowy mouth feel. Crack one, pour it in a glass, take a whiff, hold it up the the light and take a sip! Don't you agree?

Surround Sound: Enigma

dipa

8.2% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

⁠Surround Sound: Enigma, the latest version of our rotating-hops DDH DIPA, showcases some truly unique hops from around the world. Enigma from Australia, Moutere from New Zealand, and Simcoe from the US. The result is a beautifully intense bouquet and flavours of tropical fruit, passionfruit, ripe berries and citrus. We dose all of our Surround Sound DDH DIPAs at 20 g/l of hops to impart an insane hop experience. Surround Sound is our flagship, rotating hop DIPA. The ever-rotating line up of hops allows us to use the freshest and most fun hops on the market. What’s constant is the generous dose of double dry-hopping, which makes for a super juicy hop-bomb IPA.⁠ ⁠ ⁠Art: Daniel Ferrer Peralta

Stranger Than Fiction

porter

5.5% ABV • 25 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Stranger Than Fiction is a full-bodied porter with plenty of roast flavour with hints of molasses. Ridiculous amounts of chocolate and pale ale malts make this porter a smooth and creamy brew.

Prophets & Nomads

gose

4.5% ABV • 12 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Our Gose is an unfiltered wheat beer made with malted wheat. This creates a unique cloudy yellow colour and provides a refreshing crispness and twang. Our Gose has a low hop bitterness and features coriander and Himalayan salt, adding hints of complementary dryness, spice and a touch of sharpness to the beer.

sour

5.2% ABV • 35 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

To all our Collective Seasonal Dry Hop Sour fans, we heard you. This brew is now part of our year-round lineup! After the never ending battle between the hop heads and sour lovers we decided to appease the two. Using Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand and Vic Secret from the Yakima Valley this mixed fermentation brew is juicy, sour and extremely refreshing. Sour & hops in perfect, thirst quenching, melody!

Collective Arts Brewing •

PA No. 10 is a flavourful, yet extremely sessionable Double Dry-Hopped Nano IPA. Made with 12 grams per litre of Mosaic and Simcoe hops, tropical fruit notes dominate but are balanced with a smooth body that makes this one a super easy drinking IPA. And at just 3.2% ABV it was made for sipping in the sun! Art: Ronan Lynam, Washington, DC, USA

IPA 11

india-pale

Collective Arts Brewing •

IPA 11 is all about balance. We took Idaho 7 hops, bursting with big tropical fruit notes, and paired it with a favourite: good ol’ citrusy Mosaic. Next we added lactose to balance out all those big hop flavours and give this super flavourful Double Dry-Hopped IPA a silky smooth mouthfeel. Art: Mystery Meat Design, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

IPA 12

The 12th in our IPA series here! IPA 12's juicy bouquet showcases the best of New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin hops, married with American Mosaic to produce notes of Crushed gooseberry, white grapes, red berries and blueberries. Dry hopped at an abundant rate of 16 grams per litre.

Guava Gose

gose

4.9% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Pouring a beautiful soft cloudy pink and smelling of a tropical vacation, our Guava Gose is like a sour mashed wheat beer dosed with the largest and freshest batch of guava we could get away with. The base Gose (pronounced: Goes-ah) has a balanced lemony tartness from the presence of malted wheat, Himalayan pink sea salt and coriander with a flowery bright smoothness from guava. The end result is a perfect balance of tart, sweet, and sour, leaving you refreshed and wanting more.

Blackberry, Cherry, Lemon and Vanilla

sour

5.1% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

BCL&V. If you think that’s a mouthful, just wait until you take your first sip. The flavour and aroma of dark berries & stone fruit dominate this fruity sour delight, and are backed up by a generous punch of bright lemon and creamy vanilla.

Big Cat Roars

dipa

8.2% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

California knows how to party, and our friends at Alvarado Street Brewery know how to make a super flavourful Double⁠ IPA! So we teamed up with them to make a delicious⁠ beer in the classic West Coast style. Dry hopping at a⁠ rate of 18g/l with Galaxy, Enigma and Mosaic give huge⁠ tropical fruit notes and a fresh berry character.⁠ ⁠

Raspberry Dry Hop

sour

Blueberry Sour W/ Cacao

sour

5.6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Rich, chocolatey flavours typically belong to porters and stouts. We're throwing you a curveball; a rich, chocolatey...sour. It may sound strange - until you try it. Our winter seasonal sour features sweet blueberries and decadent cocoa, balanced with just the right amount of tart acidity.

Barrel Aged Imperial Porter

porter

11.5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

A super-charged version of our Imperial Porter. Aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels for over a year, this new beer delivers a smooth combination of rich chocolate flavours from our Imperial porter, married with vanilla and warming alcohol from the barrels. Coming in at 11.5% ABV, in 500ml bottles – this one will warm you up this winter, or cellar it for next year! Beautiful Art tube packaging with a poster print of Kait Cooper's art.

Origin of Darkness – Siren Collab

porter

9.6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Sound the alarm – for the first time ever in our Barrel-Aged program, we’re using RUM! Siren Craft Brew from England wanted to create something that exemplified the sweet rich flavours of dark stone fruit, so after 6 months in 10-year-old South American Rum barrels we added Prunes, Raisins and Dates to a Baltic Porter base. Think sticky toffee pudding, like Nan used to make.

Origin of Darkness – Voodoo Collab

stout

11.5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

21 months. That’s how long this Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels. If it were a child it would be stringing two-word sentences together by now. And you know what it would say? “F*cking delicious.” Collaborating with Voodoo Brewing from Pennsylvania, we used Cocoa Nibs and Cassia Bark (also known as Chinese Cinnamon) to give this beer some deep chocolate flavours and a sweet spice.

Origin of Darkness – CR/AK Collab

stout

8.4% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Holy Cannoli, did we whip up something delicious with Italian brewery CR/AK. We threw real, bakery-fresh Cannoli and a massive amount of chocolate into the mash of this Imperial Stout. After about a year of aging, the flavours of pastry and chocolate marry perfectly with the deep vanilla and oak of the bourbon barrels. Mamma Mia, delizioso.

Origin of Darkness – Prairie Collab

stout

11.9% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Our collaborators for this beer – Prairie Artisan Ales out of Oklahoma – are truly Imperial Stout masters. With their arsenal of knowledge and talent at our side, we wanted to tackle something uniquely Canadian. Something with Coffee. Something Crisp. Keeping that in mind we brewed an Imperial Stout with a huge amount of Cacao powder, vanilla wafers, brown & lactose sugar, and freshly ground Detour Coffee. The result should taste familiar, indelible, Canadian. (It’s Coffee Crisp. We’re talking about Coffee Crisp)
