Fathers can't resist the manly scent of wood smoke. It's what draws them to barbecues and bacon. Long ago, rugged Bavarian dads would hew wood, draw water and roast malt over open fires, just so they could quaff hearty ales with a hint of smoke. Save your pop that trouble. Treat him to this rich, authentic Rauchbier, with malt tempered over hickory and black cherry embers in local smokehouses. Then fire up the barbecue.
Malt: Canadian 2-Row Barley, Smoked Canadian 2-Row Barley, Vienna, Munich, and Carastan.

This Village Father has a rich, malty backbone and a touch of hickory black cherry smoke from locally smoked Alberta 2-Row Barley. With subtle, complimentary herbal spiced hops this is one beer that deserves to be consumed around the grill.
It was love at first sip. We'd never met a more dazzling, brilliant brew. Our squeeze charmed us with smooth Bavarian malt, teased us with lemon and raspberry, kissed us softly with hops. We told ourselves, this may be too good to last. So for now, just drink it in.

A new take on the North American pale ale, this unfiltered india session ale is light, and very heavily hopped to present both a bitter finish with a hop forward flavour and aroma. The nose features strong orange, lemon and floral notes with a slight earthiness. Unfiltered to preserve as much hop essence as possible.
