Discover new music with Audio/Visual. This collaborative series celebrates the intersection of art, music and beer, featuring a record label, four bands and one visual artist. Every three months, the bands, the record label and the artist will switch, making room for continued discovery of emerging music of all genres. Audio/Visual Lager is super refreshing, making it the ideal beer for concerts, green rooms, backyards or wherever you tune in. Audio/Visual is brewed with pilsner malt and brown rice and cold aged for 4 weeks for the most refreshingly clean, and crisp finish possible. We use Wai-iti hops for fresh notes of lime and mandarin citrus to round out this easy drinking lager.

Matter of Fact

blonde-ale

4.6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Matter of Fact, our easy drinking Dry Hopped Blonde Ale, is designed to refresh. A subtle but present dry-hop of Ella, Centennial and Citra hops puts a citrusy, tropical twist on a clean blonde ale. With a floral, grapefruit nose and bright haze, this beer is perfect for someone who loves a New England Style IPA but is after something a bit more sessionable.

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.

Rhyme & Reason

pale-ale

5.7% ABV • 55 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Our ʻRhyme & Reasonʼ Citra Pale Ale showcases the very best hops have to offer, but at only 5.7% abv. It’s far more sessionable than your typical American IPA. The flavour and aroma of Citra, Centennial, Chinook and Simcoe hops prevail without excessive bitterness for maximum drinkability. Malt sweetness in the background complements the hops for a crisp finish that will make you keep going back for more!

Ransack the Universe

india-pale

6.8% ABV • 85 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Galaxy, Mosaic, and Citra hops 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 delicious, hemispheric hop mashup!

Life in the Clouds

india-pale

6.1% ABV • 50 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

Fall into the rich embrace of this New England style IPA. Simcoe and Mosaic hops balance each other to make this juicy IPA explosively fruit forward in both taste and aroma while curbing any unbearable sweetness to make an extremely drinkable beer. The huge mouth feel ensures all of your tastebuds are enveloped in a blanket of tropical bliss, paradise in a can.

Good Monster

dipa

8% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

This New England style DIPA is a beast, but not in a "lurking in the shadows, evil" kind of way; in a "flavour explosion, delicious hops," GOOD Monster kind of way! Double dry hopped with 24g/L of Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo; notes of tropical mango and passionfruit, juicy peach, and bright orange, lemon, and grapefruit shine!

Placeholder Image

Earl Grey

wheat-beer

5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Belgian Wits are traditionally brewed with orange peel and coriander, so to add a flavourful and modern twist on a classic we enlisted the help of our pals at Genuine Tea. We replaced the orange peel with another classic - Earl Grey. Made with the oil of Bergamot Orange citrus, the tea gives this beer a unique flavour while honouring the classic beer style.

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.

Circling the Sun

cider

Circling the Sun cider is a tart cherry cider blend made with Ontario Montmorency Cherry juice from the Niagara escarpment, and blended with our Nature of Things cider.

Cranberry & Blood Orange

Jam Up The Mash

5.2% ABV • 35 IBU • Collective Arts Brewing •

After the never ending battle between the hop heads and sour lovers we decided to appease the two. Using Vic Secret, Mosaic, and Citra hops this brew is juicy, sour and extremely refreshing. Sour and hops in perfect, thirst quenching, harmony!

Raspberry Dry Hopped

Placeholder Image

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 batch of guava we could get away with. The base Gose 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

Pomegranate & Grapefruit

sour

5.6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

The Pomegranate and Grapefruit sour showcases a unique balance between tart and sweet. It’s a fine line to walk, but we left it in the hands of fermentation and it didn’t let us down. This fruity pair is meant to satisfy your thirst and be deliciously refreshing!

Mai Tai

sour

6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Inspired by the flavours of the classic tropical cocktail, this sour is brewed with curaçao orange peel, lime juice, and real orgeat syrup.

IPA 16

india-pale

6.3% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

IPA No. 16 is a refreshing blend of juicy and floral. Brewed in honour of International Women’s day, the nose is fragrant while retaining a strong backbone of hoppy aromatics. The complex hop blend was designed by the Pink Boots Society, an organization created to assist, inspire, and encourage women in the beer Industry, and lends a subtle floral sweetness. The beer finishes with an effervescent pop of pithy grapefruit for an elevated IPA with a distinct and striking flavour combination.

IPA 17

india-pale

6.5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

The 17th entry in our IPA series brings together two of our favourite beer elements: sour and hoppy...and we did not hold back on the hops!⁠ This brew is dosed with the perfect combination of Amarillo, Ekuanot CRYO, Columbus and El Dorado at a whopping 16g/L, resulting in a stunningly bright citrus character with dank and tropical stone fruit backing notes. Add in a bit of bright acidity from the souring process and these delicious hops shine even brighter!⁠

Passing Thoughts

sour

5.20% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Passing Thoughts is a fruit-forward sour made with prickly pear and pineapple that's just PERFECT for summer sipping! Prickly pear, a member of the cactus family, has an intensely sweet flavour similar to melon. Combined with tangy pineapple and mellow tartness from our base sour ale, the result is a balanced brew with sweet undertones and tons of fruit flavour.

Approaching Oneness

gose

4% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Approaching Oneness is how we approached this Gose made with Buddha’s Hand… with some Saaz. The unique citrus flavour of Buddha's Hand, a plant that grows one of the funkiest looking fruits you'll ever see (seriously, Google it), combines with Saaz hops for bright aromas of lemon, hints of zesty lime, fresh grapefruit and a little coriander. This brew finds a perfect balance between fruity, sour and a little salinity.

Comfort In Numbers

india-pale

7.4% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Take comfort in this floral, stone fruit-forward IPA! Comfort In Numbers was brewed with Loral, Crystal, Bravo and Comet hops for a peachy, citrus flavour, with hints of brioche, and a slightly piney finish. This IPA pairs well with camping and outdoor adventures.

Moving Thoughts

dipa

8% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Let your thoughts move directly to this DIPA. Moving Thoughts is a hoppy blend of Sultana, Galaxy, Citra and Bru-1. With tropical aromas of pineapple, guava and peach, this brew has a smooth satiny taste, with lightly resinous and fruity finish.

Cosmic Machine

lager

4.9% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Most beer lovers already know that the Pilsner style originated in the Czech city of Pilsen (or, Plzeň). But a little further north, German brewers have taken to putting their own spin on the classic Pils! Crisp and crushable, Cosmic Machine is a North German-style Pils, delivering a firmer bitterness than its compatriots further south and a ton of flavour from 2020 harvest Mittlefruh and Hersbrucker hops.

Emerald Flora

india-pale

7% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

We brought our Hamilton pals from Merit Brewing over to our Toronto brewery for our latest small-batch collab! We put our heads together and came up with Emerald Flora - an elegant yet hazy and sun kissed IPA! Brewed with Riesling icewine flour and Nelson Sauvin and Cashmere hops, expect a burst of Concord grape and juicy peach on the nose, with notes of ripe gooseberry and a punch of citrus. Emerald Flora is a softer drinking IPA but blooming with complex fruity and aromatic flavour!

Placeholder Image

Resonance

porter

5.5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

Made with peanut butter and banana, Resonance is a deep, sweet brew but very approachable. With flavours of banana bread loaded with peanut butter and notes of a toasty cup of coffee, we think this is the coziest brew we’ve ever come up with! This Porter was brewed with German Magnum, Nugget and Cascade hops, creating a warm and familiar taste.

Placeholder Image

Third Eye Open

dipa

8.9% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

This flavourful DIPA will open your mind (and palate!) to familiar fruit aromas like apricot, peach, and piña colada. This brew was made with two types of hops, Sabro and Lotus - melding flavours between sweet coconut flakes and tropical juicy fruits. This sounds like the perfect summer sipper to us!

Stones Turned

pale-ale

5% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

We're leaving no stone unturned as we continue to celebrate classic beer styles! Our latest small-batch brew - aptly named Stones TURNED - is our take on a traditional Bavarian style Hefeweizen. Refreshing and pleasantly fruity, this wheat beer has a strong presence of banana and background hints of pear, apple, vanilla and clove. It's brewed with Mittelfruh hops to create a complex of flavour with fine and elegant floral aromas and citrus tones. Prost!

Origin of Darkness: Mikkeller Collab

stout

11.3% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

IMPERIAL STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS W/ COFFEE AND ALMOND MILK When you’re brewing with international beer legends like Mikkeller from Denmark, you’ve got to make something outside of the box! In an homage to their iconic Beer Geek Breakfast series, we brewed a vegan-latte inspired imperial stout. Aged in freshly emptied Kentucky Bourbon Barrels, this brew gets a jolt of caffeine from roasted coffee beans from Detour Coffee, and some smoothness with Almond Milk from Earth’s Own plant based beverage company.

Origin of Darkness: Pohjala Collab

porter

9.6% ABV • Collective Arts Brewing •

BALTIC PORTER AGED IN COGNAC BARRELS, W/ PLUMS About 7,000 KM and the Atlantic Ocean separate us from our friends at Brewery from Estonia. But geography doesn’t mean a thing when kindred brewing spirits come together! We put a Baltic Porter base into freshly emptied XO Cognac barrels from France to age for 9 months. After that we added plums to elevate the sweet stone fruit character. This beer exemplifies the beautifully deep, sweet, and rich cognac flavours. Pour a glass and curl up in front of a roaring fire, you fancy f*ck.
