Tim Whalen moved to the Toronto area in the mid-80’s when metal ruled the earth. Punk was pretty much dead and was crossing over into heavy metal. Tim was always musical and had an urge to leave his small town in New Brunswick and when the opportunity came to stay in Toronto and not go home, Tim stayed. After playing in countless bands as the lead singer and front man, Tim found a career in iron work. Tim has just finished his BA in Forensic Psychology and is going for his PHD. It’s a big long stretch between rocker and doctor (rhyme unintentional) but Tim has done it and his story is equally inspiring.

Full Time I.P.A.
In three words: Hoppy, fruity, bold.
It’s our newest full time brand, which is where we got the name!
Tasting notes: Full Time I.P.A. pours hazy deep gold with a dense white foam. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and pine abound. The flavour mirrors the aroma impressions with pronounced juicy fruit. A balanced bitterness underpins the flavour. This medium bodied ale finishes dry with lingering hop and fruit notes.
In three words: Crisp, balanced, refreshing.
Lug Tread is a lagered ale (a term we coined!), it’s top-fermented like an ale, and cold-aged like a lager. It’s been our flagship brand since we opened in 2006. As of 2017, it’s now available in 355ml cans for the first time. It’s won more than 20 awards.
Tasting notes: Lug-Tread pours a brilliantly clear straw gold, with rocky white foam. A Graham cracker malt character mingles with notes of freshly cut hay and a subtle touch of apple. Sweet, grainy malt is followed by balanced hop bitterness, and the finish is clean and dry.
