A STORY
BEHIND EVERY BEER

We’ve let our roots and community inspire our brews.

YES, HONEY CREAM ALE

Ale, cream, honey…enough said. Dark golden in colour and slightly hazy in appearance, this easy-drinking beer produces a white foam head. Hints of honey are balanced with slight lingering bitterness from cascade hops. “Yes” is the correct answer to the question, “Honey, cream ale?”

KOMMUNITY KOLSCH

This refreshing Kolsch is an ode to the earliest German settlers of the Elmira area, who toiled in the summer heat to cultivate the roots of our flourishing community. It’s easy to drink, with a full flavor and subtle sweetness, which helps remind us of the fruits of our labours, and perhaps help get us through them.

COUNTRY NIGHTS PORTER

When you can’t see your hand in front of your face, you know it’s a dark country night. When you can’t see your hand through your beer, you know the evening’s going to be alright. Dark brown with an off-white head, this easy-drinking ale provides a good balance of malt and hops. Light smokey notes from the roasted barley, a smooth mouthfeel and hints of chocolate leave you wanting more.

NQIPA

Though NQIPA means Not Quite India Pale Ale, sometimes “not quite” is a good thing, such as, “My glass is not quite empty.” Amber golden and slightly hazy, this smooth beer offers upfront grapefruit flavour mixed with a little sweetness. Candy aromas give way to lingering bitterness. If India pale ale is not quite your favourite, this beer is for you!

HERE WE GO!

Here We Go! is the first batch of beer ever brewed at Rural Roots Brewing Co. It’s spontaneous, light and lively, and meant to be shared with friends who are the same way.

GOLDEN LEAF AUTUMN ALE

Same as the leaves floating off the trees in the fall, this beer is a pale golden yellow. It has the initial punch of a cold autumn morning but mellows out like a sunny afternoon.
