UPA

Toronto-style IPA 6.5%
Icon/Fridge Created with Sketch. In the fridge

Every 6 and 1/2 minutes, a train rumbles by the brewery, along the West Toronto Railpath. The pleasant and soothing clickity-clack has been an ongoing theme since we starting construction in the spring of 2015. While there are GO trains serving the GTA and VIA trains serving the whole country, it’s the train that runs between Union Station and Pearson Airport that we see most often. Our UPA is a riff on the classic IPA with an ABV to match the time between trains.

On tap and in cans at the brewery and around town.
