Bodacious Blueberry Blonde

Packing an awesome-gnarly-radical punch is our latest creation – Bodacious Blueberry Blonde Ale.  When you take a sip of this one, you’ll be reminded that summer is still in full swing!  Watch out – there’s a wallop of blueberry flavour and aroma in a clear golden blonde ale (we tried for blue, but it turns out you need a *lot* of blueberries to make that happen!)

We brewed this one with fresh-picked local blueberries from Canaan Blueberries just outside of Ottawa.  Thanks go out to to M&B for filling such a big order for us.

This brew is a single release – meaning when it’s gone, it’s gone!  We set 100 growlers aside for sale at the brewery.  One keg went into storage for Jamie White’s wedding (he’s wanted us to brew this beer since the first day he walked into Josh’s garage 3 years ago.)  The rest will be on tap next week at the following locations:

  • The Alibi (Kingston)
  • Arrow & Loon
  • Brothers Beer Bistro
  • Corner Bar & Grill (Westboro)
  • Johnny Farina
  • Rochester Pub
  • Two Six Ate

Cheers, and Happy National Capital Craft Beer Week!

So sad it's a one and done!! One of the best beers I ever tasted. Stumbled across it at a St.Catharines Beer Store. Cleaned them out. Truly a sad day!

Kingston ribfest and craft beer Sept 16, stopped by accident and gave 4 oz a try of "long shot white", while leaving my token saw the smaller signage in the back of "blueberry blonde", decided I would come back for a taste. Well I just kept coming back. Both were great but blueberry blonde was a big hit at the table of men and women. My goal is to see if it is carried in kingston, ontario

My friend went to the Toronto Craft Beer Festival last month and just introduced me to your Bodacious Blueberry Blonde Ale today. All I can say is "Holy F&ck!!" Just an amazing Blonde Ale all around! I'm starting to get into fruit flavoured Blonde Ales and this certainly goes to the top of my list now. Please keep us posted when you come back to future Toronto beer festivals!

I have to give you fellas a huge pat on the back! My wife sent me to find blueberry beer and I lucked out to get some right off the skid, being unloaded at the Beer Store on Terry Fox. The aroma and flavour is outstanding! Being born and raised in the maritimes, moved here 9 years ago, we used to pick blueberries at home in NS and this ale brought back great memories of home. Hats off to your crew for pulling this awesome craft beer together. Cheers!

I had your beer last night at Abe Erb in Waterloo and it was amazing. I did everything I could to get our server to sell me a growler but sadly he wouldn't. Is there anywhere that I can buy it locally???? You would make me the happiest woman anywhere!

This fantastic one off has made it's way all the way down south to Billy's Pub and Grill in Essex (Windsor) Ontario! We are very pleased to introduce Broadhead Brewery onto our taps but you'll have to hurry in if you want a taste of blueberry because we have one of the last kegs of it. Other Broadhead products available.

Unfortunately not, it went very quick. By popular demand, we will most likely brew this again next year!
