CAMBRIDGE, ON – A new brewery in a familiar location in Cambridge, Ontario is about to release its debut beers.
Farm League Brewing has been founded by four friends – Matt Boismier, Tyler Campbell, Mike Mayo, and Collin McKinnon – who all have past experience at other Ontario breweries. And the same can be said about the historic building where they’ve set up shop, a former knife factory that was the home to Grand River Brewing from 2007 until 2020, and the brewing equipment which was purchased from the Kitchener location of Abe Erb Brewing when the chain closed last year.
While the brewery is not quite ready to welcome guests, the first three Farm League beers will be available tomorrow and Friday (July 1st and 2nd) during a pop-up event at Old Galt Bottle Shop (135 George St. N. Unit 100, Cambridge).
The inaugural Farm League beers include…
Hauler Lager (4.8% abv):
Pilsner malt and flaked corn, not to be confused with corn flakes. The crispy crusher will go down smooth and fast. Golden, clear, and refreshing – it’s a perfect lager for cutting the grass, going to a baseball game, or sitting on the dock. Crack one, lean back and enjoy.
Leif American Farmhouse Ale (5.9% abv):
Old world Belgian yeast and dry-hopped with our favourite new world hops. Galaxy, Ekuanot and Mosaic round out flavours to create notes of candy apple, complex stone fruit and peppercorn with a refreshing dry finish.
Fun Police IPA (6.1% abv):
Hazy, juicy and delicious. This delightful IPA is stocked with Galaxy, Ekuanot and Cashmere hops for an upfront punch of citrus, stone fruit, pineapple and a little bit of spice. A smooth finish will lead you into another before you even finish the first.
