Paying tribute in name and in label to our friends from Arrow Custom Cycles (the previous owners of our stunning brick building), we’ve brewed a pleasantly light and traditional ale that is sure to please all palates. Just like the bikes built in our walls before us, our Kustom Kolsch is finely tuned and ready to ride.

Piggy Pale Ale | 650ml | ABV: 5%

Piggy Pale Ale

AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND in 650ml bombers and 355ml 6-pack cans

In our community, rugby is not just a sport—it’s a way of life. When opposing teams come to town to take on the Piggies, they know it’s going to be a hard game. They also know that every drop of blood and sweat left on the field will be replenished back in the clubhouse with the tip of a pint of some fine ale. We took our love of the game (and of our local team, the Cowichan Piggies) and pitched it into this highly session-able, tavern-style Pale Ale. Pouring a light golden-orange, this little Piggy has a medium hop body, balanced malt and just enough gumption to bring home the game. Best enjoyed with friends and teammates!

COLOUR: Light golden-orange
AROMA: Earthy, herbal hops; slight citrus
TASTE: Light and smoothly hoppy; a dry, yet refreshing ruck of the palate

Midnite Umber Ale | 650ml | ABV: 5.1%

Midnite Umber Ale

AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND in 650ml bombers

Every brewery needs a guardian. Meet ours, Christopher, the all-seeing gargoyle. He’s been watching over our building for years. As the bell tolls on the darkest hour, he is there—a few chips and bumps, but sturdy as always. This richly malty, but easy-drinking beer is dedicated to him and his watchful legacy in which we can all find a little comfort. A refreshing take on a darker style of beer, the Midnite Umber Ale pours a beautiful ruby/reddish brown (also known to artists as umber) and has notes of candied apricot and demerara. While this brew is full of rich, decadent flavours, its body is surprisingly light. Balanced nicely by a solid hand of southern hemisphere hops, and with a smooth malt finish, the Midnite Umber Ale is the best of tease and temptation.

COLOUR: Ruby/umber brown
AROMA: Toffee and dragon fruit
TASTE: Candied apricot, toffee and malt, slight hop finish
