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


July 18 – July 21

New release:

Black Wheat!

BLACK WHEAT – new release!
draught only
4.5% ABV / 15 IBU / UK Golding
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.

CALEDON SOUR
draught only
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. Quite thirst-quenching. A great patio beer.


BIGHEAD AMBER
500 ml bottle + draught
5.5% ABV / 24 IBU / centennial hops
The same malt bill 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. 

GOLDEN ALE
473ml cans + 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.

BOCK LAGER
473ml can only
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.

 

FARMSTEAD ALE 
473ml 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 apricot, lychee, and tangerine. Easy drinking, yet incredibly flavourful.

FARMSTEAD I.P.A
Draught only
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
473 ml can (new!) + 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.

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.

EXPERIMENTAL 
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.

 

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.

Please contact us if you’re looking for a specific location or would like further details about our beer offerings and pricing.
