Lab Rats Needed for Experimental Series

‘It started as a simple experiment ‘

How many times have you heard that?  A lot of good, bad and even ugly things have been developed through experimentation. Without  experimentation where would we be? Life would be kind bland and boring. Who needs that???

With that as our motivation – and the fact that it’s really cold outside & really warm inside our brewery –  we decided it was time to see what would happen if we did a few of our own  experiments in beer brewing to see what would happen. Things we’ve often wondered about but never really gave it a try, we  are now playing with. From  different ingredients & mixes to  techniques and styles – we’re messing around in our lab.

We’re hoping you’d be interested in ‘testing’ the results with us – kind of like ‘Broadhead beer loving lab rats’ …that could someday take over the world!!!!         But I digress – Where was I?

This week we launch the first (of 4  – planned but who knows?) releases  in our new exciting Broadhead Experimental Series.

Quantity of each brew will limited to only be a single 750L batch  – with acompletely different ‘experiment’ batch release every 2 weeks!

Grindstone is great don't get hoodwinked into making another hoppy Ale like all the other brewers a nice Weiss would be nice

Hi guys, I just moved to St. Marys and found cans of Grindstone for sale at the LCBO. It is a perfect beer!!!!! Not too hoppy, and the caramel flavour is great. I am pleased to see that every resturant in St. Marys has it on tap, and it is my go to beer when I'm out for dinner. Infact the sunset diner emptied their keg for me tonight, so I can tell I'm not the only one who thinks this beer is great. a smoky sweet bock sounds awesome, and it looks like the feedback positive. I would love to see this beer available at the LCBO so those of us who are nowhere near Ottawa could give it a try!!!

I went back today to get another growler of the Smokin Bock but you were out. I had to settle for a shot from the sampler as my last enjoyment. This was a fantastic brew, worthy of re-creationism. Can hardly wait for Experiment # 2.
