Finally made it out to Brassneck Brewery after a quick pit stop at Cartems Donuterie next door’s.
I’ve been to quite a few breweries lately but heard nothing but good things about BB.
We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 1:30pm) and the place was bumping. We had to stand for a bit before some seats opened up. The seating is a bit tight as only the back has seats. The front you can drink at but it’s standing room only.
Know what’s hilarious? First time I’ve been ID’ed when entering a brewery. Oddly enough, only I was checked but not my friend.
The decor in the back is pretty cool as the wallpaper is a mix of their old flavours (Tizz wozz experimental sour sounded pretty intriguing).
A bunch of awards they’ve won but that wooden dog is too cool.
Beer taps are clean and minimalist.
The front has cans for sale along with growler refills and some merchandise (spotted some t-shirts, hats and toques).
There were 9 flavours available on tap.
Closeup of the beer flavours.
We took our time deciding but they also have some snacks available (taro chips & dip, sausages from Oyama Sausage Co., pretzels, baguette and loaves from Beyond Bread).
There was even “fancy” fizzy pops for the non-drinkers from Phillips Soda Works.
We tried once-ler (farmhouse S.M.A.S.H.), sticks n stones (rye saison), bjorn again (farmhouse ale) and magic beans (coffee beer).
Interesting that they write the labels in pencil; we guessed they must re-use them again?
Our favourite was the once-ler; easy, tasty drinking. The coffee beer was interesting but a sampler was more than enough.
Another solid brewery in town. Even though they didn’t have any beers that we took a particular liking to, they still impressed me with their beers. I’ll be back for the chill vibes.
