The Story:

One of our earliest beers ever made, Phoenix pays homage to the Phoenix Brewing Company that was once situated right next to our current brewery location. Originally this beer was released in a stubby bottle in another nod to the rich history of brewing in this country. Just this past year we had someone drop off a capped bottle from the Phoenix Brewing Company from 1918 that they found in the floorboards of a house they were renovating. Our lab dept has undertaken an extensive DNA analysis of the beer and we’ll be sharing the results of this project in the new year (along with a short video) so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, enjoy this tasty and well-balanced gold lager and help us cheers the brewers and breweries that came before us!

Tasting Notes:

Phoenix gold lager pours a rich, golden colour with a creamy white head. The nose has pronounced Noble hop aroma, and clean lager esters.  Medium bodied, this beer finishes with a clean, drying bitterness and bready malt character.


Currently only available on draught outside of the Snowcase.

  1. “Phoenix” gold lager – I found this to be a very tasty and well-hopped lager, smooth to the palate and with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. I will definitely continue to look for the product if available in shops.

  2. Fairly generic lager but definitely more malty than the usual. Very easy drinking. Would go great with fish n chips with malt vinegar.

  3. I really enjoyed this Lager. It was light and the crisp that once I finished the bottle, I wished I had another. I would love to see this being sold regularly in a six pack. Delicious and light, this beer is certainly one of the best so far.
