William Street Product Updates!

Since we last posted here, there have been a great many fabulous events around The William Street Beer Company and it is about time that we got everyone up to speed. Over the last week, we have released two new beers to great response and we are excited to give you some more details.

Willy's Best Bitter - 4% ABV     32.5 IBU's     7.1 SRM

Hop Varieties: Fuggles, East Kent Goldings
Malt Varieties: William Street 2-Row Pale Blend, Caramel 60
Yeast: Top Fermenting Ale

As a response to popular request, we created a Mild English Pale Ale to please the casual beer drinker. Although mild, it balances a wonderful malty sweetness with the distinctive UK Hop Varietals. With it's bright golden colour and light texture, it is bound to be a hit with beer drinkers from both sides of the pond.


Chocolate Cherry Stout - 6.5% ABV   16 IBU's     49.5 SRM

Hop Varieties: Cascade
Malt Varieties: William Street 2-Row Pale Blend, Wheat Malt, Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt, Flaked Wheat
Yeast: Top Fermenting Ale
Special Ingredients: Dark Chocolate, Black Sweet Cherries

Fact: Brewing beer with real bakers chocolate is a messy ordeal with a multitude of inherent risks.
Fact: Great risks provide great rewards.

As Cobourg, Port Hope and the surrounding areas dig out of a huge snow accumulation amidst stifling cold, we wanted to create something festive and warming. Valentine's Day proved to be a great excuse and an even better inspiration. Our Chocolate Cherry Stout combines all of the indulgence of hand crafted confections with the proud winter tradition of a robust stout ale. It pours black with a rich and inviting chocolaty brown head. The nose references both cherry and cocoa and the bitterness of dark chocolate combines beautifully with subtle hop character.


We absolutely love imagining, developing and presenting these ales for you and your smiles are our greatest reward. Both of these beers will be available for sampling and purchase this week at 412 William Street, amongst the return of our core brands.

In addition, we are excited to be preparing an announcement regarding our packaging format going forward into Spring. Details will follow soon!
