Our executive chef Rachel Mabb is getting together with our very own Jason Makman to come up with the perfect cheeses to pair with some of the best sours around!

Check out the beers we will be featuring:

L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is an antique beer, a strong sour ale aged in old wine oak barrels during one year. After the aging period, the different casks are blended together in order to obtain complexity and lots of flavors. St Bon-Chien is one of the world's flagship sour beers coming from a mixed fermentation. It first ferments with wine yeast, then during the cask's maturation, lots of microorganisms coming from the casks further change the beer's flavor profile. 11.0% ABV

Logsdon Seizoen Bretta is a certified-organic unfiltered seizoen is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains, producing fruity and spicy flavors that are balanced by hops and soft malt character. Special Brettanomyces yeast provides added dryness and crisp complexity to the Seizoen Bretta. Bottle conditioned with pear juice for a natural carbonation. 8.0% ABV

Duchesse de Bourgogne is an ale of mixed fermentation. It is a sweet-fruity ale with a pleasant fresh aftertaste. This ale is brewed with roasted malts and with hops with a low bitterness. After the main fermentation and the lagering , the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” matures further for many months in oak casks. The tannins in the oak give the “Duchesse de Bourgogne” its fruity character. “Duchesse de Bourgogne” has a full, sweet and fresh taste. 6.2% ABV

Dieu De Ciel Solstice D’été Framboises has a dominant sourness that is a result of letting the un-boiled mash do its thing for a few days through the process of kettle souring. The interesting sour character this develops is further complemented by the addition of a heaping pile of whole raspberries shortly thereafter. The result is an incredibly refreshing sour ale where the fruit is allowed to carry through without restraint. A truly amazing fruited Berliner Weiss style ale from one of Canada’s finest beer producer’s. 5.9% ABV


Quetsche Tilquin à L’ancienne (Draft) is a spontaneous fermentation beer obtained from the fermentation of destoned fresh purple plums (variety Prune de Namur or Quetsche véritable d’Alsace, close to the Damson) in a blend of 1 and 2 years old lambics for a period of 4 months. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, it is re-fermented in key keg for a minimum period of 3 months. The lambics used were fermented and matured in Tilquin’s own oak barrels at the blendery. They are made from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon.This draft version uses the same recipe as the Oude Questche Tilquin à l'ancienne bottle version, but lighter in alcohol, due to the use of a blend of 50% of Meerts and 50% of 1 and 2 years old lambics. Meerts is a low alcohol (2.8-3.2% ABV) table beer made from the second runnings of a lambic. 5.3% ABV
