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.

ERIN FALL FAIR WEEKEND
New Beer Alert!
Two new wet-hopped ales available on draught + in 750 ml bottles:
Wet-Hopped Golden Ale + Wet-Hopped Rye Pale Ale
WET-HOPPED GOLDEN ALE
draught + 750 ml bottle
4.7% abv / 27 ibu / golding fresh hops
Using the same base recipe as our Golden Ale, we made this one with fresh, wet Golding hops from our farm. Malt and yeast forward, this bottle conditioned ale was primed with honey harvested from the farm. Hints of Banana, champagne-like carbonation.
WET-HOPPED RYE PALE ALE
draught + 750 ml bottle
4.2% abv / 56 ibu / cascade + chinook wet hops
Bottle conditioned, primed with maple syrup harvested from the farm spring 2019. Featuring cascade and chinook wet, fresh hops. Fairly bitter pale ale with enough rye and malt for a touch of balance.
draught only, cans will be available Oct 25
5.5% abv / 24 ibu / centennial hops
The same malt billed used in our Amber Hop X, but this time we brewed it solely with organic Centennial hops grown on the Bighead Hop yard in Meaford. Deep Amber in colour. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavourful enough for the fans of an IPA but smooth enough for those just beginning their craft beer journey.
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.
Draught only + 750 ml bottles
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.
draught + 473 ml cans
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.
draught + 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.
draught + 473 ml cans
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.
LATE SUMMER SOUR
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.
EXPERIMENTAL – RASPBERRY SOUR
6.2 % ABV / 38 IBU / cascade + nugget hops
Aromas of fresh berry which mellows with tartness. Drinks more like a raspberry radler.
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.
