We're raising a pint to the fans of the Double Blue! Well, not just raising one, we're crafting it! A refreshing hazy pale ale made with Hallertau Blanc and Citra hops for a slightly tropical, citrusy summer pre-gamer with a refreshing white wine character. LOOOOOONG-BOOOOOAT!
What You’ll Love About It
It's a beer meant for pre-gaming: At 4.9% it rivals those sessionable lagers you're used to enjoying around game time, but the flavours from the literal boatloads of hopsknock it out of the park. We taste gooseberry, orange, white wine, and victory.
How It's Made
We start with a malt bill that includes Canadian malted barley, oats, and wheat, then whirlpool and dry hop with Citra and Hallertau Blanc, finishing it with a foggy British-style yeast from Guelph, Ontario. What you'll get is a soft and refreshing pale ale reminiscent of a mimosa.
Why Is It Called Longboat?
Toronto's professional football team play their home games mere steps from our front door, and we've had a chance to get to know some of the players and the fans. Both of them wanted a flavourful hazy they could enjoy, so we gave them one. Subtly named to ensure we don't end up on the wrong side of a lawsuit.
How To Enjoy It
Before, during, or after game day, at 7-10° Celsius.
Did You Know?
This isn't the first time Toronto's pro football team and a brewery were uttered in the same breath - the team was once owned by Carling O'Keefe!
