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.

VANILLA PORTER – Limited new release Nov 25 @ 10am
4.3% abv / 35 ibu / cascade hops
A sweet twist on our Session Porter, still sitting at 4.3% ABV and featuring 100% organic GoodLot farm cascade hops.
Perhaps the perfect compliment to escaping this onset of winter, paired with trudging though the forest seeking your perfect tree.
Aroma and flavour hints of vanilla,  balancing out the dry and slightly bitter finish.  With a lower ABV and low-carb (no, not that kind of carbs…lower carbonation), you can get into a bunch of them, depending on how far you have to look for your tree. A great way to kick off the holidays.

COFFEE PORTER w/ BASIL – Limited run
3.9% abv / 9 ibu / cascade hops
Maybe the floorboards and tiles are too cold? Or the sheets and covers are too warm? Maybe the dark morning weather is a little too hard to face? Or you’re slightly under it? Maybe it’s the morning after a great holiday party? Or the morning of a contentious one? Whatever the case there’s an antidote- a brewer’s breakfast. There’s a little-known holy trinity of caffeine, a little booze, and something green. There’s a collaboration Porter that features a generous helping of Smile Tiger’s Ethiopia-Yirgacheffe coffee bean roast, which we cold-brewed with fresh local market basil herbs. There’s Breakfast In Bed… in a pint glass or straight from the 500ml bottle… PJ’s optional, and nobody’s gonna judge! Made in collaboration with Smile Tiger Coffee in Kitchener.

SESSION PORTER
473 ml can
4.7% / 35 ibu / cascade hops
GoodLot Farm’s cool weather favourite. This dark, medium bodied Porter offers balanced notes of chocolate, coffee and hops (for a slightly dry bitter finish). Unique and approachable.  A perfect ale for the changing seasons.

HIGH FIVES – Seasonal wet-hopped ale
355 ml can
5.7% abv / 35 ibu / cascade and chinook hops
Have you heard it said that “you can’t make aromatic and delicious hop-forward beers using bine-fresh wet hops?” Have you heard it said that “you can’t make aromatic and delicious hop-forward beers using exclusively Ontario hops?” We’d like to raise a 355 ml can to the village crew of volunteers who pitched in to harvest our 2020 Cascade and Chinook. Featured in their farmstead batch of all-Ontario wet-hopped pale, we hope you’ll join in our admiration and in our continued dedication to locally grown hops. High Fives!

RASPBERRY SOUR 
473 ml can
6.2% abv / 38 ibu / cascade and nugget hops
Based on our beloved Farmstead Ale, this beer was intentionally soured, giving it a tart flavour. Easy drinking with a dry, almost pithy finish. Aromas of fresh berries. Drinks more like a radler.

GOLDEN ALE
473 ml can
4.7% abv / 27 ibu / golding hops
50% Canadian Wheat and 50% Canadian 2 row Pale Ale Malt, using UK Golding hops from GoodLot & Clear Valley Farm.  Pours hazy, like a classic whit, with a clean white head. Very approachable, easy drinking beer.

FARMSTEAD ALE (Flagship)
473 ml 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 pf apricots, lychee and tangerine. Easy drinking, yet incredibly flavourful.

FARMSTEAD I.P.A.
473 ml can
6.2% abv / 69 ibu / cascade, chinook, nugget hops
Based on our Farmstead Ale, the malt bill is the same, however we’ve added chinook and doubled the hops. A big flavour bomb, all about hops and bitterness. Beautiful, smooth finish.

BORN TO BE MILD (British Mild)
473 ml can
3.2% abv / 17 ibu / perle & kent golding hops
This deep dark ruby red ale drinks surprisingly light in flavour, body and alcohol. Aromas of molasses and hazelnut, with flavours of coffee, chocolate and Nutella running through. Crisp, light and refreshing.

BIGHEAD AMBER
473 ml can
5.5% abv / 31 ibu / centennial, chinook, cascade hops
Blended with hops from GoodLot and hops from Bighead hop yard. Deep amber colour, aromas of citrus and pine.  Flavourful enough for fans of the IPA, smooth enough for those beginning their craft beer journey.

HOP HASH
355 ml can
Our first 355 ml tin, full of stone fruit aromas! Pours hazy copper hue with a tight pleasant white head. Flavours of citrus, pine, mango, apricot and peach. Easy drinking considering the 6.8 abv / 90 ibu. This beer highlights the dank flavours from high concentrations of Ontario chinook, centennial and cascade hops. We dry hopped for the first time with hop hash – the lupulin that we’ve been collecting for the past three harvest seasons – sticky, thick, concentrations of oils.

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.
