FIVE ELEMENTS

AMERICAN IPA

First released February 2017

Malt

Adjuncts

Hops

Other

ABV: 6.0%

A delicate balancing act of malt, hops, and yeast, Laylow's take on an American IPA takes inspiration from the many versions of the style found across North America. The name pays homage to the five steps of making an IPA: mash, sparge, boil, ferment, dry hop. Each brings crucial flavours to the table to achieve a fruity, resinous beer of balance with a long, dry finish.


LOWLANDS

BELGIAN-STYLE WIT

First released December 2016

Malt: Pilsner, Wheat Malt

Adjuncts: None

Hops: Willamette

Other: Citrus juice and rind, spices

ABV: 4.8%

Unlike many witbiers, Lowlands focuses on the character of the wheat itself. The citrus and spice, and the yeast-derived aroma, serve to accompany this malt-forward beer.


ZERO SUM

AMERICAN PORTER

First released January 2017

Malt: Pale, Brown Malt, Honey Malt, Pale Chocolate Malt, Carafa III

Adjuncts: Golden Naked Oats

Hops: East Kent Goldings, Chinook 

ABV: 5.4%

More brash than its British counterpart, Zero Sum is both aggressively roasty, and generously hopped. Spicy, earthy notes from the hops balance the malt and roast, resulting in a beer at once competitive and balanced.


PETRA

ZWICKELBIER

First released January 2017

Malt: Pilsner, Brown, Honey Malt, Pale Chocolate, Grätzer Malt

Adjuncts: Flaked Barley

Hops: Saaz, East Kent Goldings, Willamette

ABV: 5%

Introducing Petra, a German amber lager with a full body and deep maltiness. The long, cool fermentation and maturation result in a crisp finish, making this beer highly drinkable, without sacrificing its full flavour.


CABRILLO AVE

BRETT IPA

First released January 2017

Malt: English Pale, Chocolate

Adjuncts: Wheat Malt, Flaked Oats

Hops: Citra, Ontario Cascade, Ontario Nugget, Centennial

Other: Brettanomyces bruxellensis trois

ABV: 6.5%

For this bottle release, an initially malty IPA is fermented with two yeast strains, and brettanomyces. The result is a bone dry beer that puts forth complex fruit and funk, while retaining the memory of its maltiness.
