One Great City Beer
Our approach at OGC, with our beer and our food, is to create something that is adventurous while remaining accessible. This means that no matter your tastes, you will find something to drink at OGC. Our brewmaster has created six Core Pours that appeal to different palates and represent as much of the beer spectrum as possible.
In addition to our Core Pours, we have casks, test batches and season-ales where we get a little more adventurous.
MONKEY TRAIL PALE ALE
This is our Classic American Pale Ale. Light and easy drinking bright hop character with a soft malt background.
Light bready malt character gives way to grapefruit and lemon scented hops. Taste similar to aroma, light bready character provides a nice base to to the hops, light bitterness partners citrus notes. Grapefruit and lemon most prominent among them
ABV: 4.5% | IBU:23
THE QUEEN’S BEST BITTER
Our ESB has a stronger malt profile with a nutty finish that balances the bitterness. A large hop profile of noble hops gives the beer an earthiness and floral character. This beer will remind our worldly guests of local pub ales in England. If you are just starting your journey into craft beer, this is an excellent introduction.
A strong malt base of nut and stone fruits, balanced with an equally strong hop character of earthy and floral tones.
ABV: 5.5% | IBU: 45
TIPSY COW MILK STOUT
Our Milk Stout has a dark malt character of a stout balanced out with a lactose addition, lending it an added body and sweetness as well as lending a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a perfect stepping stone into the world of stouts. We debuted it at Flatlander’s Beer Festival 2016 with extremely positive results.
The dark malt character reveals notes of chocolate and coffee enhanced by the sweetness of the lactose.
ABV: 6% | IBU: 18
Witbiers are unique in that they use “gruit,” a mixture of herbs, to both flavor and preserve beer We have developed a subtle gruit mixing orange and coriander with a touch of chamomile for an unparalleled flavour.
A twist on the classic Witbier; a strong citrus presence with classic Belgian yeast spice. The difference is a large Chamomile addition making our Wit incredibly smooth.
ABV: 4.5% | IBU: 15
Our American Blonde Ale is our easy drinking, our most approachable beer. Brilliantly clear and a light malt character make for a great stepping stone from the world of American Lagers.
The aroma is slightly fruity with distinct ale yeast character and some malt breadiness which persists in flavour. There is also tight malt sweetness followed along with some background fruitiness, pear and citrus notes being the most prominent.
ABV: 5% | IBU: 15
MAD SCIENTIST EYE PA
A classic American India Pale Ale. Our hoppiest beer, our IPA has a large hop presence balanced with a strong malt background.

Whistle Wetter Belgian Farmhouse Ale
This Mixed Culture Belgian Ale is brewed with fresh American style hops from Prairie Mountain (in Boissevain, MB).

Power 97 Hazy Pale (only available in Bottles)
This summer the rage was NEIPAs (New England IPAs). We decided to take this style and apply it to a more approachable beer: a Pale Ale. This beer is heavily dry hopped which offers a large citrus and fruity hop character. The wheat and oats added to the mash give the beer a nice creamy mouthfeel with a light bready character that bring out the hops and lingers into the finish.
ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 18
Just in time for winter is our seasonal dark malt based beer. This beer features chocolate and roast malt notes partnered with a toffee and burnt sugar sweetness. There are slight raisin and plum tones, but they are more present in aroma than flavour. No hops or yeast character to be found.
ABV: 7.3% | IBU: 25
Cookie Monster Oatmeal Cookie Brown Ale
Our Cookie Monster is an English brown ale brewed with oats and spiced with cinnamon and vanilla. Perfect for the holiday season.
Tasting Notes:The nose on this beer is predominantly cinnamony with a but of roast and crystal malt in the background. The flavour has Light cinnamon with a very slight hint of vanilla and brown ale notes of toffee and roast malt as well as the full mouthfeel that comes with oats. It pairs well with sweeter dishes and desserts such as COOKIES!!!!!!
ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 20
Et Tu, Brut IPA
A light, bright, dry IPA.
This beer has very strong citrus and melon notes on the nose. It is very dry with some sweetness stemming from the fruity hop character. It finishes rather dry on the pallet from the low amount of residual sugars and higher carbonation leaving a light citrus character on the back of the pallet.
ABV: 7.3% | IBU: 35
Test batches are small batches that allow us to be a little more creative and out there. We usually brew 100 to 500 litres at a time and keep it on tap until it runs out.
Casks are when we take our regular beers and put them in a cask with some additional ingredients and yeast to make a truly unique beer. They are available every Thursday night, only at OGC.
Cask Night Countdown
Join us every Thursday at 6:00 pm when we tap our weekly cask.
Flavours are announced the day of on social media. Past flavours have included peach cobbler, Neapolitan, milk shake IPA and many more.
While we love our beer, we know there is lots of great beer in Winnipeg.
We feature rotating guest taps that offer customers the chance to taste beers from some of the other new and existing breweries in Winnipeg.
