3rd Time Lucky | Beer of the Month October 2019

by Connor Creighton October 09, 2019

This is a beer we have been trying to make a long long time. Our initial efforts were all (delicious) failures. Even though they were double IPAs, we found them way too bitter. Finally, we figured out the solution to the bitterness problem. Once we sorted that out, everything else fell into place. This is a big, bold IPA that has tonnes of fruit forward hop flavour with just the right amount of finishing bitterness.

Pinecone Punch

Pinecone Punch

by Connor Creighton August 01, 2018

We’re pleased to announce our first guest Beer of the Month! This wonderful recipe comes from the gentlemen at Farmhandbrewing (their Insta is @farmhandbrewing). Ben and Connor have been shopping at KJ for a while now and have become very dedicated brewers. We’re very pleased to be able to offer one of their recipes!

Pinecone Punch is a hop forward, slightly malty IPA. It has big notes of pine, and citrus balanced with the smoothness from the crystal malt addition. It is big, boozy, and hoppy, but deceptively smooth and easy drinking too. We enjoyed the hell out of it when we tried it, and we know all of the hop heads who shop with us will too!

If you ask a person from Toronto how they pronounce their city name, they’ll look at you incredulously and say “Torono” as if it makes perfect sense. Now, ask someone from outside of Ontario and they’ll say “Toronto”. Why is this important? Well it just so happens that this beer has a distinct West Coast style – but it is brewed with hops from Ontario exclusively. So we’ll bridge the gap and give it an Ontario name with a west coast pronunciation.

What we have here is a hop forward pale ale without too much bitterness. It is clean, low in alcohol but full of crisp citrus flavours. It has quickly become a favourite of ours at KJ, and a crowd pleaser with our friends and family.

YIPPEE KI-YAY MR. FALCON

by Connor Creighton April 01, 2017

Oh this months beer is a FUN one. Yippee Ki-Yay Mr. Falcon pays homage to one of the greatest voice dubs in TV history, and to a great hop named after a craft beer pioneer. This is a single hop IPA with big citrus notes, that is full flavoured and has just the right amount of hoppiness.
