LARGE DAY

American Pale Ale

Mildly hazy and bitter. Light on ABV, extremely refreshing, and generously dry-hopped. This APA is our salute to all 300,000 square kilometres, 28,000 people, and 9000 years of our predecessor’s history.

LAWN SWEEPER

Cream Ale

This light-bodied ale is brewed with corn and rice to provide an enjoyably crisp finish. As the warmer days of spring creep in, fleets of lawn sweepers declare a reprieve from Labrador’s lingering winters.

HAPPY VALLEY

HEFEWEIZEN

A nod to our neighbours 500km to the east. This hazy, straw-coloured weizenbier boasts a hefty aroma of banana and cloves with a refreshing phenolic finish. All roads should lead to good beer.

RAIL BENDER

RED ALE

An amber ale full of toffee and caramel flavours, making it a solid choice for those malt-forward beer lovers. Life in Labrador is full of twists and turns. We think one of these can help to straighten some things back out.

SPIKE MAUL

IPA

This balanced India Pale Ale (IPA) boasts a beautifully hazy hue with robust aromas of citrus and tropical fruits blended with a mild bitterness.

OVERBURDEN

OAT STOUT

A full-bodied stout to fill the void that you’ve been trying to fill with all of those “other” stouts. Brewed with a generous amount of chocolate malt and oats, this is one satisfying smooth beer.

PROSPECTOR

AMERICAN PALE ALE

This hazy pale ale is a treasure for those in search of the perfect sessionable beer. American hops shine through to offer a rush of citrus and floral flavours with low bitterness.

HOP SHOCKER

DIPA

This citrus-heavy double IPA is deceivingly smooth, while packing an intense aroma. We’re supposed to treat all our children equally, but we can’t help but show this one a little extra love.

SHABOGAMO SOUR

Berliner weisse

Modestly soured with a light addition of pink Himalayan salt to enhance each thirst-quenching sip. Best enjoyed on warm summer days near the deep, cool waters of Lab West’s adored lake.

POLARSTERN

mosaic single hop ipa

Named in recognition of the German research icebreaker used to headquarter the MOSAiC Arctic Expedition. This golden IPA is loaded with the citrus and tropical fruit aroma Mosaic hops are so well-known for.

LOBSTICK LAGER

festbier

A smooth, clean, pale German lager featuring a prominent malt flavour and light hop character. Lobstick’s are traditional markers found in our Boreal Forests, created by removing the middle branches of a pine tree. Stay on course. Enjoy responsibly.

20 HOUR

BLUE RASPBERRY SOUR

Soured for nearly as long as the Labrador Summer Solstice sun shines, this pink-hued, light bodied, fruited sour offers a refreshingly tart burst of flavour with a dry finish.

BOREAL

AMERICAN BROWN ALE

This American Brown is brewed to bring the best of both worlds, bold roasted malt flavour meets great American hops. Loaded with chocolate and biscuit malt, plenty of late kettle hops, and a modest dry hop to round out this beer.

SUNKINK

AMERICAN WHEAT

Hazy and pale in appearance, with heavy citrus and mild spice. This beer is hit hard with orange peel in the boil and a modest amount of ground coriander to offer up an alternative taste of the classic American Wit.

IRON FEST

blonde ale

In partnership with the Town of Labrador City, we brewed this clarified golden-hued ale to commemorate the Big Land’s inaugural Iron Fest. Light, crisp, and thirst-quenching, this beer is refreshing and full of character.

WEEKEND AT TOBY’S

IPA

Brewed in recognition of our partnership and admiration of Smokey Mountain Ski Club. This beer is our ode to the official and unofficial champions of this volunteer-led ski hill, including president Toby Leon. 

LE FUR DU MONDE 2022

BELGIAN TRIPEL

Our second cellar series release, Le Fer Du Monde 2022. This oak-aged Belgian Tripel is a rich and complex offering.

1967 INC 

FRUITED BERLINER WEISSE

In loving memory of our Aunt Roma Hawco & each dedicated resident who built our community. – Come Home to Wabush 2023.

Orange Daydream

Milkshake IPA

Loaded with Equinox, Azacca, and Citra hops for a heavy citrus fruit aroma. Sweet orange zest, lactose and self-made vanilla extract tie together a smooth mouthfeel reminiscent of a creamsicle.

Banishment 2024

 Oak-Aged Bourbon Oat Stout

Crafted to honour the 2024 running of Cain’s Quest, the world’s longest and most gruelling snowmobile race across 3000km of Labrador wilderness.

enjoying your growler

Our refillable growlers are the perfect way to share your favourite IRBC brew with friends!

To Ensure Optimum Quality:

  • Keep refrigerated.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Ensure cap is secured tightly.
  • Best consumed within 36 hours after filling.
  • Beer stored in a growler will slowly lose carbonation. Once opened, and exposed to oxygen, the beer will begin to flatten much quicker.

Growler Care:

  • Once empty, rinse immediately or refrigerate until washing.
  • Rinse the growler with hot water three times. Do not use detergent to clean the growler as trace amounts can produce off flavours in your next fill.
  • Set it upside down to air-dry; a wet growler will encourage bacterial growth.
  • To avoid trapping stagnant air, store the empty growler uncapped.
