I wanted to thank you for seeing our brewery through another year. Your support, loyalty and faith has carried us through months of change, false starts and challenges. We miss having you in the taproom and it’s been hard on our team having to constantly adapt. Like you, we look forward to brighter days when we can be together again.
We wouldn’t be here without you. Reflecting on everything, it’s hard to feel anything but gratitude.
As a special thank you, we’re knocking 15% off orders of 24 cans of Dominion City beer (or more) for a limited time. This discount is live and automatically applied, so hop to it.
But wait, there’s more…
Here at the brewery we’re excited or the months ahead. I’ve never been more proud of the beer our team is making and the ingenuity they bring. A more dedicated team of beer lovers you will not find. I’m also excited to bring you behind the scenes on upcoming releases and to share the passion our people have for what we make. Stay tuned.
I’m proud to say there’s never been a time when we’ve purchased and brewed with more locally grown inputs for our beer than now. We’ve always wanted to go beyond releasing the occasional locally-sourced one-off; choosing instead to weave locally-sourced ingredients into our regular practice. It feels meaningful that the choice you make to join us winds up supporting family-owned farms and businesses like Hayhoe Hops, Barn Owl Malt, Mississippi Mills Malting and others working to grow and prepare the ingredients that make your beer possible, right here in Ontario.
We’ve got big plans for City Seltzer this year and we’re excited by the enthusiasm you have shown for it. There’ll be more to come on that soon.
In the last year we continued our focus partnering with local not-for-profits and causes important to our community. The truth is, you’ve propelled these efforts by purchasing collab beers like The Good Way, 1971, Safer Shores, Hippocratic Heroes and more. You’ve also contributed and helped us corral tens of thousands of dollars through our online cart checkout for local causes feeding, housing and supporting our community. You make us feel the purpose behind our product; thank you.
While we’ve worked to support our community, we’ve also been working on building an even stronger, more inclusive workplace and beer industry. We’re thrilled to share our version of Brave Noise Pale Ale in support of this important goal and to keep working at making changes in our own workplace that ensure we live up to our values.
In the weeks and months ahead we’re going to make this space one where we can connect with you, our community and the people that make this place possible. I’m excited about what’s ahead.
For now, enjoy a case of beer with a bit of break on us. It’s the least we can do to thank you for having our backs and keeping us going.
P.S. - While we’re at it, we’re starting the year the way we ended it, fundraising to end youth homelessness. It’s cold out there and we can make a difference together. For the rest of the month you’re invited to support GenNext East Ontario during online checkout. Thank you for adding a couple of bucks to your online order to help out those who are struggling.
