Jonathan Ronson Armstrong’s first solid touring band was Sewing With Nancy, a late nineties skate punk band. After that band broke up, “the Reason” was born. The Reason was more of an emo band in the vain of Grade, Boys Night Out and other bands from the Hamilton/Burlington region. After 10 years of recording and touring, the band is now on a permanent break and will only play when and if they want to. Jonathan made a choice a few years ago to take music less seriously. He also decided to stay home and raise his new born child so he can be present and a father. Spending quality time with your children is extremely difficult when you have to tour and be in a band. A good sole and a fun conversation.

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.
