Seanic Route Bold & Hop Forward

This new Moonlight Kettle Tropical IPA takes a (virtual) trip to the tropics. An escape to the tropics with juicy pineapple in the lead and a hint of passionfruit.

Pairs with Hawaiian pizza, hot and sour fish soup, Thai green curry. Limited Release 6% ABV 35 IBU

Detour Easy Drinking & Refreshing

Life’s more interesting when you take the less paddled fork in the river. One of Ontario’s first India Session Ales. This dry-hopped brew is truly sessionable, with a rewarding tropical aroma, big hop flavours and a clean finish. The result is a perfect balance of big flavours, with lower alcohol, so you can enjoy taking a detour all day long. Perfectly balanced sweet juiciness with a beautiful bitterness. A crisp and clean finish with slight bitterness lingering on the palate. Pairs with Thai mango chicken, sesame chicken salad, shrimp cocktail. Year Round. 4.3% ABV. 30 IBU
