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.

Beer Descriptions

473ml can
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.

FARMSTEAD ALE (flagship)
473ml can
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.

473ml can
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.

473ml can
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.

473 ml can 
6% ABV / 16 IBU / magnum, hallertau hops 
This is a traditional German lager, known to be dark, malty and lightly hopped flavor. This beer has been lagering in tank for 10 weeks at low temperature.  Copper coloured, malt forward beer with a dry finish, brewed with Magnum for bittering and Hallertau for aroma/flavour.

473 ml can
4.5 % ABV / 24 IBU / fuggle, perle hops
This Extra Special Bitter pours a deep amber, with a tight white head. Bittered with Fuggles and Perle (from C.V.H.). Quite well balanced throughout.  Aromas of malt and bitter hops, that flows through to the flavour. A dry slightly bitter finish. A great drinking beer.

473ml can
5.2% ABV / 26 IBU / cascade hops
Based on a British “Special Ale” this one has a bit more hops and bitterness than a traditional version.  Aroma notes of chocolate, with a malty slightly bitter and dry finish that will leave you wanting another. Made with Cascade hops.

473ml can
4.7% ABV / 35 IBU / cascade hops
Dark and full bodied with balanced notes of chocolate, coffee and cascade hops which follow through in the flavour.  Ends dry and slightly bitter.  Unique and approachable.

500 ml bottle
6.2 % ABV / 38 IBU / cascade + nugget hops
Based on our much loved Farmstead Ale, this beer was intentionally soured. Giving it a tart flavour. Easy  drinking with a dry bitter almost pithy finish. Aromas of fresh berry mellows with the tartness from the  souring process.  Drinks more like a raspberry radler. Quite thirst-quenching.

750 ml bottle
10% ABV / 100 IBU / magnum, chinook, centennial hops
This beer is all about the HOPS! Pale copper, almost straw in colour, and hazey. A dank, citrusy, almost  peach aroma. Sharp, hoppy, and bitter.  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
