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.
Our IPA has a strong hop aroma and strong citrus notes partnered with tropical fruit and hints of pine. You will also find some malt sweetness in the background with hints of toffee and some alcoholic warmth.
ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 65
We come up with a new fill batch each couple of months to compliment the season. If you are lucky, you will catch us on the cusp and be able to try two season-ales at the same time.
Üter Dark Lager
This German style black lager or “Schwarzbier” is made with rich darker malts but is surprisingly light for its color.
The Üter is a light bodied beer with some bitterness but no hop flavour as it has an almost entirely malt derived character. This malt character is bready and toasty with just a hint of dark chocolate with a little bit of roast malt in the finish. It pairs well with roasted meats, red meats and mild cheeses.
ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 21
Our second “hazy” or “juicy” IPA, this beer has a large oat and wheat component making for a fuller and smoother mouthfeel. The Maverick is hopped almost entirely in the whirlpool and the fermenter to provide a lot of hop flavor and little bitterness.
The nose on the Maverick is bright and citrusy leaning towards a mandarin orange with some tropical fruit notes in the background. The flavour starts off sweet and finishes with some hop bitterness similar to an orange rind. The hop flavours are similar to the aroma: a large orange character with some mango and pineapple in the background. The Maverick pairs well with spicy foods, rich dishes and food dishes. Best enjoyed while inverted.
ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 6
We Got The Funk Sour
An American style kettle sour with a mixture of lactobacillus strains is boiled then fermented with wild yeast.
The nose on this beer is bright and fruity with a hint of barnyard-like phenolics. Overall it is light and tangy with a hint of sourness, some fruit character and a red currant finish. It pairs with sharp cheeses, sweeter dishes, creamy sauces and egg dishes as it will cut the fatty flavour in any food.
ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 6
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.
