| Featured Beer

Good Time IPA

Session IPA 4% ABV

Good Time Session I.P.A. delivers fruity hop aromas and full flavour in an easy-to-enjoy light ale. Brewed with organic nelson sauvin and centennial hops, the recipe adds wheat and oats to barley malts for a satisfying and uncompromising craft beer experience.

History and Style

A session I.P.A. is a lower-alcohol expression of an India Pale Ale that highlights approachable hop aroma and flavour, without intense bitterness. The hop-derived citrus and tropical fruit notes lead into a fuller mouthfeel than might otherwise be expected from a light ale.

Tasting Notes

Good Time Session IPA pours gold with white foam. The aroma offers a combination of citrus, gooseberry, pineapple flavours and aromas. The flavour is juicy with subtle hop bitterness. The body is light and refreshing. The finish is clean and lingeringly hoppy.

| Red Jacket Marketing Survey

As many of you may already know, the iconic Canadian racing yacht, Red Jacket, was bequeathed to Marine Museum of the Great Lakes by the late Peter Milligan. We are hoping to keep sailing her by charting her with captain and crew to groups who would be interested in seeing that it was like to sail. To determine interest, we have developed a Survey Monkey at We would really appreciate it if clicked on the link you took the 30 seconds it takes to answer the three simple questions. Please consider completing the survey even if you would not be interested at all. That would be important information for us to have.

Thanks for your help.
