The beers at Brutopia are all-natural, traditionally brewed ales.
The brewing system is a single infusion mash system; this means that we allow the naturally occurring malt enzymes to produce the raw materials our yeast needs to make beer.
Our malt is mainly Canadian with British specialty malts added for specific colours and flavours. Our hops are from the U.S. with Goldings Leaf hops from the U.K. for dry-hopping (I.P.A.). All our water is filtered and the brew water is adjusted to aid our malt enzymes. Our yeast is a traditional ale yeast which we maintain and continually reuse; the present yeast has been in use for 8 years and over 1000 batches.
We have 8 house beers on tap, 5 which remain year round and 3 that change with the season.
The 5 classics:
An amber beer with lots of malt flavour, a fruity body and a pronounced hop finish.
This is a traditional ale style, originating in Britain. The darker malts and high hop levels were used to help preserve the beer on the voyage to India.
A golden ale with the distinct flavour of Quebec wildflower honey.
Nut Brown Ale
A dark brown beer with hints of chocolate and dark fruit. The particular hopping gives this beer its “nutty” quality.
A pale ale with a unique character coming from the Munich malt used.
A fruity blonde ale which combines a large raspberry aroma with a milder fruit taste.
