Beer Details & Movie Pairings
Big Sea by Mad Squirrel Brewery
From across the ocean comes the resurgent west coast IPA Style. Big citrus, big pine and big bitterness come in waves throughout this brew, courtesy of some BIG ‘C’ Hops. Get ready because the tide is changing and big sea is coming!

$UMO by Mad Squirrel Brewery
Named after the two heavyweight hops that battle it out in this brew (Summit and Mosaic), $UMO will wrestle your taste buds with a flavour combo of tropical fruit, dank herbs and weighty bitterness. Other beers may enter the ring but $UMO will be the last brew standing.

Independence by Abbeydale Brewery
Brewed in collaboration with Indie Beer Shop Day 2021. A 4.0% pale ale single hopped with Idaho 7, vegan and gluten free, intended to be deliciously sessionable and very accessible. Refreshing with delicious flavours of stone fruits, alongside tropical notes, hints of pine and a bitter finish.

Heresy by Abbeydale Brewery
A clean and crisp sessionable lager in the continental style, with a fresh and floral aroma. Noble hops and low bitterness provide an easy drinking beer with a clear and bright presence in the glass. Quaffable and light, with just a hint of that classic Abbeydale eccentricity we all know and love...
