Halcyon Barrel House brewmaster Bryce McBain set out to create a perfect session beer for those times we spend sitting around with friends, sharing advice and talking about life. The result is Life Advice, an organic table beer. Effervescent and barrel-kissed, this easy-to-enjoy saison has just a bit of tartness, which adds to its refreshing nature.Read More

Halcyon Barrel House has bottled Curse of Knowledge, its organic farmhouse saison, for wider distribution in Ontario and Québec. Curse of Knowledge is a barrel-fermented, blended farmhouse saison with brett. Spice and more delicate herbal, fruity and floral elements are rounded by its relationship with wine. It’s almost magically both effortlessly drinkable, and assumingly complex. Previously available on draft and from the brewery only, it will now be available in 500 ml bottles at retailers in Ontario and Québec.Read More
We love dry beer at Halcyon, so making a Brut I.P.A. was right up our alley. We allowed for two full months of barrel fermentation with our house mix of brett to create a drying effect without enzymes, then dry-hopped with mosaic for an aromatic matrix of berries, fruit and funk.
