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 was established in 2011 as Winterbrook Hops Farm. We use hops grown on our farm (Cascade, Nugget, Willamette, Mount Hood, Fuggles & Goldings) in combination with locally grown grains and other ingredients grown on and around our farm to create truly local Caledon ales and lagers.

LIMITED AVAILS:  Black Ale + Mild Ale (750 ml Bottles only)
GROWLER FILLS: Porter and Town + Country Ale

BLACK ALE
750 ml bottles
5.2 % ABV / 26 IBUs / galena, centennial, cascade hops
This black and bitter ale was made with malts from Harvest, Hops & Malt from Guelph, and hopped with Clear Valley’s Galena hops for bittering, Centennial hops from Bighead Hops’ and our own Cascade hops for flavour and aroma. Smooth, rich and wonderful ale for any occasion, with a lovely bitter finish.

MILD ALE
750 ml bottles
3.8 % ABV / 25 IBUs / fuggle hops
Dark brown, easy drinking mild ale, ours a tan mocha head and aromas of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Slightly sweet with an off-dry slightly bitter finish. This beer is bottle conditioned & naturally carbonated. There will be a yeast cake at the bottom of the bottle – best to decant the beer of yeast, leaving it at the bottom.

PORTER
750 ml bottles + growler fills
4.7% ABV / 35 IBUs / cascade hops
This is a dark, full bodied porter.  Well balanced with notes of chocolate and coffee.
Approachable and easy drinking. Unique in the porter world, as we only use Ontario cascade hops.

BROWN ALE
500 ml bottles
5.2% ABV / 26.3 IBUs / cascade hops
Inspired by British “Special Ales” this has a touch more hops and bitterness than a traditional version. This malty aroma has notes of chocolate, with subtle bitter flavours and a dry finish.

AMBER HOP X
473 ml cans
5.5% ABV / 24 IBUs / Hop X
Deep copper in colour.  Aromas of caramel and spice. Flavours of Christmas pudding, pine and citrus.  A dry bitter finish. A unique beer brewed with a now extinct hop, Hop X, from Clear Valley Hops.  Due the its unique but unknown parentage, this hop has been eradicated. We have the last lot of this hop,  so when we use it all up we will no longer be able to duplicate this recipe.

LAB 1 – FARMSTEAD ALE
473 ml can
6.2% ABV / 38 IBUs / cascade + nugget hops
This Caledon pale ale was brewed here on the farm, based on our flagship Farmstead Ale.
This is our version based on our water profile, all other ingredients (malt, yeast and hops) remain the same.

TOWN + COUNTRY ALE 
Growler Fills Only – 500 ml Bottles Sold Out.
6.2% ABV / 38 IBUs / cascade + nugget hops
This pale ale was brewed off-site in Toronto.  Based on our flagship Farmstead Ale but brewed with different malt, Toronto water and fermented with an alternative yeast strain. The only thing this beer has in common with Farmstead Ale is the hops and the love put into it.

 

 

In Addition…

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.
