Black Creek Pioneer Village is proud to announce our latest LCBO offering – Black Creek Pumpkin Ale.  Available in limited release at select LCBO stores, this new brew captures the essence of pumpkin pie that’s rich in aroma and spicy in flavour.  We use real pumpkin in the brewing process and infuse it with a special blend of spices that includes nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.  Available only for the fall season, Black Creek Pumpkin Ale retails for $3.95 per 500mL bottle.  LCBO customers can search the LCBO website to locate stores offering the product, or simply ask for it at their local outlet.  For more information check out our website.

New Brew – Wet Hop Pale Ale

Moments before picking, an hour before brewing!

Our ever popular Wet Hop Pale Ale is ready!  Using hops grown at Black Creek and picked during our Hop event a few weeks back, Ed brewed the beer the same day the hops were picked.  Traditionally, beer is brewed with hops that have been dried.  Some of the volatile flavours apparent in fresh hops are lost during the drying, packaging and storing process that hops undergo before being sold to breweries.  The beer has had a few weeks to mature and it features floral notes with a hint of citrus.  The Wet Hop Pale Ale is only available at our historic brewery at Black Creek Pioneer Village.  Come down to Village beginning Saturday, September 15th to sample our beer or pick up a growler!

As an added bonus, this Saturday is our 56th Annual Pioneer Harvest Festival which features an auction of handmade quilts, multicultural foods, music, a cider making demonstration, freshly made sausages and sauerkraut, stone ground flour and many other demonstrations and activities.  Check out the event listing here.
