Amérique Sauvage is part of our series exploring the flora of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. This NEIPA offers the perfect marriage between sweet gale from Abitibi and carefully selected American and Australian hops. A good complex juice that bursts with flavors, shining through its well "cloudy" appearance. Sweet gale was used in beer preparation in the Middle Ages, has long been used by Indigenous peoples to treat various ailments, and is now used in cooking and our beers! You can find this peppery-scented plant with piney notes and certain aromas that may remind you of nutmeg along the edges of lakes and other bodies of water.

Castor Boiteux is part of our series exploring the flora of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. This American NEIPA flavored with wild mint from Abitibi offers a bouquet of aromatic hops and a nice citrus taste. This hazy nectar is perfectly "pintable" for thirsty trappers after their long forest trek to check their traps for weasels, lynxes, or who knows; some fine lame beavers. The name "Lame Beaver" comes from the word Macamic, which in Algonquin translates as follows: "mak" means "lame" and "amik" is associated with "beaver."

L’houblon d’Achille is part of our series exploring the flora of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. This Abitibi NEIPA is flavored with Yarrow from Abitibi and is packed with American and Australian hops, making it a complex beverage bursting with flavors. Traditionally used as a healing plant, Yarrow has aromas of menthol, camphor, and chamomile. Achilles' heel was discovered to be that his only weakness was not having a beer in hand. HA! HA! One sip and even the most invincible legend suddenly becomes unstable on his divine feet!

IPALaye! is part of our series exploring the flora of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. This New England IPA-style beer features the sweet-scented Matricaria (Matricaria discoidea) with a delicate fragrance that gives this beer a subtle aroma, evoking the sweetness of lemon and chamomile. Presented in a hazy appearance, it prepares the senses for a gustatory experience with a robust bitterness perfectly balanced by notes of citrus and tropical fruits, creating a refreshing harmony. Don't resist this invitation to discover unique flavors and the urge to shout IPALAYE!
