Farm Raised Beer
Welcome to GoodLot Farmstead Brewing. We are the first farm-to-barrel brewery in the Greenbelt – Ontario’s finest agricultural region. We make fresh, super-local, estate-quality ales & lagers, using ingredients raised on our own farm.
GoodLot Brewing is a natural extension of our organic farm. We embrace a holistic approach to agriculture to produce quality, nutrient-dense ingredients. Our beer, inspired by Mother Nature’s bountiful canvas, embodies our values to protect our water, promote soil health and biodiversity, and whole-heartedly support our community every step of the way.
We like big belly laughs while we work and dancing in the fields.
This is the GoodLot Mantra.
Our Own Hops, Grown on Caledon Mountain
GoodLot Farm was established in 2009 by Gail & Phil Winters. We use hops grown on our farm (Cascade, Nugget, Chinook, Willamette, Mount Hood, Santiam, Vojvodina & Goldings) in combination with locally grown grains and other ingredients grown on and around our farm to create truly local Caledon ales and lagers.

Bottle Shop Menu
Weekend Sep 19 – 22
GOLDEN ALE - 473ml cans are back!
draught + 473ml cans
4.7% ABV / 27 IBU / golding hops
50% Canadian Wheat and 50% Canadian 2 row Pale Ale Malt, using U.K. Goldings from Clear Valley Hops. Pours hazy, like a classic whit, with a clean white head. Very approachable easy drinking beer with a dry, slightly bitter finish. This is the summer beer – refreshing, subtle flavours and dry enough that you’ll want a second.
473 ml can + draught
6.2% ABV / 38 IBU / cascade + nugget hops
This smooth golden pale ale features our organic Cascade and Nugget hops, it has a soft body with a sweet back bone. Not excessively bitter, with hard to pin down notes of apricots, lychee, and tangerine. Easy drinking, yet incredibly flavourful.
LATE SUMMER SOUR
473ml can + draught
4.7% ABV / 17 IBU / golding hops
Based on a Berliner Wiesse but less tart than a traditional one. This sour wheat beer is crisp, easy drinking. But not over the top. Late summer pleaser.
750 ml bottle + draught
10% ABV / 100 IBU / magnum, chinook + centennial hops
This beer is all about the HOPS! Ontario grown Chinook, Magnum, and Centennial. Grown by our friends, Clear Valley and Bighead Hops. Pale copper, almost straw in colour, and hazey. A dank, citrusy, almost peach aroma. The hops follow through to the pallet. Sharp, hoppy, and bitter. This is a hophead beer. Very little malt flavour, but tons of hops. This assertive hop flavour masks the 10% alcohol making for a dry, bitter, yet smooth finish. Brewed with honey from the GoodLot bees. A big, bold hop forward beer.
4.5% ABV / 15 IBU / golding hops
A black wheat beer. Easy drinking, surprisingly smooth. Black as midnight, but without any of the characteristic black malt bitterness. Surprisingly close in flavour to our Golden Ale. Unexpected light for a dark beer.
473 ml cans
6.2% ABV / 69 IBU / cascade + nugget hops
Based on our Farmstead Ale, the malt bill is the same, but double the hops. A big flavour bomb, all about hops and bitterness using Ontario cascade and nugget hops. Beautiful smooth finish.
473 ml can + draught
5.2 % ABV / 65 IBU / Galena hops
This black and bitter ale was made with local malts, and hopped with Galena hops for bittering, and Centennial and Cascade hops for flavour and aroma. Smooth, rich and wonderful ale for any occasion, with a lovely bittering finish. Dark, gorgeous and unique.
Draught – rotational tap
This tap line is in constant rotation, and dedicated to our experimental brews. We’re so fortunate to have land not only for our hops but also for our brewers experimental garden. In order to have a taste of these farm fresh, seasonally inspired ingredients and the terroir of our region join us in our beer patio and come quick, as they don’t tend to pour long.
EVERY BEER WE PRODUCE USES 100% ONTARIO HOPS.
Our Flagship, Farmstead Ale, an American Pale Ale 6.2% ABV, can be found in Restaurants and Bars in and around Southern Ontario. From Caledon to Collingwood, and Stratford to Toronto. It can also be purchased at select LCBO’s in the same geographic region.
Please contact us if you’re looking for a specific location or would like further details about our beer offerings and pricing.
