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.

8 TAPS ON DRAUGHT for growler fills, 12 oz pours and flights

GOLDEN ALE
draught
4.7 % ABV / 27 IBU / UK Golding hops
50% Canadian wheat and 50% Canadian 2 row Pale Ale Malt, using UK Goldings. Pours hazy like a classic whit,  with a clean white head. Very approachable, easy drinking beer with a dry finish. This is the summer beer – refreshing, subtle flavours and dry enough you’ll want a second. Hops from Clear Valley Hops.

PORTER
750 ml bottle + draught
4.7 % ABV / 35 IBU / 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.

BOCK LAGER
473ml can + draught
6% ABV / 16 IBU / Magnum and Hallertau hops
This is a traditional German lager, known to be dark, malty and lightly hopped. This beer has been lagering in tank for 12 weeks at low temperature. Copper coloured, malt forward beer with a dry finish, brewed with Magnum hops for bittering and Hallertau hops for aroma/flavour.  Hops from Clear Valley Hops.

BROWN ALE
500 ml bottle + draught
5.2% ABV / 26.3 IBU / 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.

FARMSTEAD ALE 
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 apricot, lychee, and tangerine. Easy drinking, yet incredibly flavourful.

 

FARMSTEAD I.P.A
500 ml bottle + draught
6.2% ABV / 69 IBU / cascade, nugget hops
Based on our flagship Farmstead Ale, the malt bill is the same, however we doubled the hops. A big flavour bomb, all about hops and bitterness using Ontario cascade and nugget hops. Beautiful smooth finish.

BLACK ALE
500 ml bottle + 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.

SPICY GOLDEN ALE
draught – rotational
4.7% ABV / 27 IBU / UK Golding hops
50% Canadian wheat and 50% Canadian 2 row Pale Ale Malt, using UK Goldings. Pours hazy like a classic whit, with a clean white head. Very approachable, easy drinking beer with a dry finish. This is the summer beer – induced with cayenne peppers grown on our farm, for subtle flavour and heat. Hops from Clear Valley Hops.

FARMSTEAD ALE – LAB 1
473 ml can
6.2% ABV / 38 IBU / 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.

AMBER HOP X
473 ml can
5.5% ABV / 24 IBU / 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 to 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.

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.
