anyone know if their stuff gets kegged at all for bars? I'm curious if they are only doing growler sales right now.

Just growler sales for the most part, but a few local places are getting a keg this week. I'll let Matt or Jeremy give out a list of places.

Pretty much only growler sales for now, although we did just send out kegs of Bump & Grind to The Bent Elbow, The Bruce (in Cambridge), b@themuseum, and Brux House.

Would love to stop by for a fill but hours aren't conducive to my out of towner travel schedule. Bummer. Hearing good things.

They're usually around after 5 weekdays and all day Sunday. You can just knock on the door. They don't post those hours because there is no guarantee they'll be there, so you take your chances. But if you're already in the area I would try to swing by.

Oh, sorry. I was under the impression that was ok. I apologize.

Arranged it with Jeremy to pop by tonight. Got to try their 4 beers that are on right now (all delicious!) and walk out with a couple growlers - thanks Jeremy!

I dropped a keg of our coffee milk stout off at Bar Hop Brew Co. earlier today. First keg to make it Toronto so far. Should be on early in the week.

Stopped by the boys' tonight and grabbed a few samples and a couple growlers. Just terrific stuff. Electric Dream Machine is so ridiculously juicy and rich. Awesome. Well worth the trip!

I'm going to be echoing the praise I've been seeing in this thread. Stopped by the brewery on Saturday with some friends. We talked with Jeremy and Matt for a bit while mulling over the samples and left with growlers. I got Chase the Sun, Electric Dream Machine, and Bump & Grind and after having a full pour of each one I have to say they are standing head and shoulders above the majority of Ontario Brewers.

Chase the Sun is a grassy, lemony banger with a clean leafy green bitterness on the finish and made me realize I need more Hallertau Blanc hops in my life.

Electric Dream Machine is very well integrated and just as crushable as Chase the Sun with just a touch more alcohol presence. Flavours of Mango, grapefruit, maybe something like plum or green grape, pithy bitterness that lingers, and some modest, balancing honey sweetness.

Bump & Grind is deceptively rich with flavours of vanilla, brownie, unsweetened cocoa, coffee acidity, and mild roast. I'm hoping there are plans for barrel aging.


Jeremy and Matt: it was great meeting you guys. I'm highly optimistic for your new business and I hope you manage to jump in full-time sooner than later.

Looks like Chase the Sun just went on tap at Folly. I'm liking the growing presence in Toronto, considering I'm in Cambridge only once or twice a year.

is that the hibiscus brew? if so, a friend brought a 1L a couple weeks ago, it was pinkish in colour, quite delicious and refreshing and easy-drinking

Yeah, that's the one.
