Green Reaper

Reaper Re-Appears

October 20th, 2014: It’s hop harvest season and Green Reaper, our annual fresh-hop IPA, is back!  This year’s Reaper is packed with fresh cascade hops which were shipped straight from the farm and into our brew kettle. Grapefruit aroma and flavours are underpinned with slight floral hints.  This IPA remains subtly sweet, featuring a vibrancy and delicacy that can only come from full-cone, never-dried hops.

Harvest your bottle at private craft-focused liquor stores before this fresh-hop apparition disappears for another year!

We’re also hosting a free draft tasting of this seasonal specialty down here at Phillips HQ on Thursday October 23rd from 4-6pm; so pop on down and help us celebrate hop harvest season the best way possible: over a beer.


Benefit Brew Nom’s Open!

We’re brewing a special beer for a charity that you choose!!

Benefit Brew is an annual project where Phillips Brewing Company creates a custom brew for a cause. The beer is named after the charity, given a custom-designed label, and full proceeds are donated (approx. $10,000). Which cause? That’s up to you!

Nominate your favourite charity until October 26th at Any federally registered charity can be nominated, but in support of age-related alcohol marketing regulations, children’s charities cannot be accepted. All 10 charities who are selected to participate in the vote also receive a $500 donation regardless of where they end up at the end of the voting period.

For a bit of background on the project, check out the video HERE!

Cherry Hieter

October 6th, 2014: Fresh cherries and generous amounts of smoked malt highlight this fruit fortified seasonal. Crafted from pale malt that was smoked in-house using cherry wood boughs, Cherry Hieter is finished with buckets of fresh cherries. Pouring a rich ruby-copper colour, flavours of sweet cherries are balanced by a strong malt backbone and bold smoke base. This brew is ripe for the sipping.

Cherry Hieter is available for a limited time only from private craft-focused liquor stores. It’s available exclusively in 650mL bottles but join us down here at the brewery this Wednesday from 4-6 to try it on draft.

Coulrophobia Box & Bottle

Coulrophobia IRA

September 29th, 2014: Scared of clowns? Us too, but it’s time to face our fears.

Coulrophobia is a brand new India Red Ale that juggles fresh pine bitterness with hints of citrus fruit. Pouring deep reddish-copper colour with a marshmallow white head, its fresh, full aroma may just change your mind about big noses. Delicately balanced with a hearty malt base, you’ll smile at the amount of body we squeezed into this flavour vehicle; no creepy face paint required.

Coulrophobia IRA is available now from private craft-beer focused liquor stores. If you would like to try Coulrophobia on draft, join us at the brewery on Wednesday October 1st from 4-6 for a free tasting. No tricks, just finely crafted beer.
