Lost Train Oatmeal Stout

“Rich and roasty!”

Named for Ottawa’s fabled beer train, rumoured to be buried somewhere beneath Lebreton Flats at the former site of Bradings Brewery, Lost Train is full-bodied with notes of rich chocolate, roasted coffee and dark grains. Ottawa-grown organic oats contribute a delicious silky smoothness.

History Of The Style

Stouts brewed with oatmeal became popular in late 19th century England, with the stout style in general, and oatmeal stouts in particular, being associated with nourishment and viewed as healthful, restorative drinks. The style has almost completely disappeared before being rejuvenated in the late 1970s by Samuel Smith Brewing.
