Ed and Shawn started the brewery in the spirit of friendship. Between the two of them, they have hundreds of memories that solidify their bond with hilarious moments, incredible achievements and unforgettable adventures (often paired with a good beer!) Shawn & Ed Brewing Company is honoured to be a part of genuine friendship moments around the world by brewing a beer that is Forged in Friendship.
The focus has always, and will always be, on quality not quantity. In all of our brews we use four natural ingredients: water, malted barley, hops, and yeast. We aim to create sessionable and flavourful lagers and unique Pinot Noir barrel aged amber ales.
Lagershed beers are brewed with the kind of craftsmanship that went into beer making before it became a high volume business. Our brew master prepares Lagershed beers for everyday enjoyment using natural ingredients carefully crafted to deliver crisp lagers every beer drinker can enjoy and share with friends.
Barrelshed No. 1 is unlike anything else you’ll find in the craft beer market today. Sourcing oak wine barrels from our sister company Flat Rock Cellars, it is craft brewed then aged gently in barrels to produce a unique, Pinot Noir flavour infused amber ale. This brew is unique to Shawn & Ed Brewing Company and has become a favourite of craft beer drinkers everywhere.
The future program of Barrelshed No. 2 and beyond will use a variety of beer styles to match to the woody, lightly acidic red wine characteristics. The perfectly-balanced flavour profiles will utilize a variety of malts and hops to provide distinctive oak affected beers that benefit from slow oxidation to generate lengthy, burnt flavours with a light to moderate bitter finish.
Bottom fermented pilsner style lager beer. An elegant beer, brilliant gold in colour, has a dry body and is balanced, with a subtle yet distinct hop profile. Its crisp, clean taste is a reflection of using quality Bavarian hops and malt.
5.2% ABV | 18 IBU
Available in 6-pack bottles and our NEW single serve 473 mL aluminum bottle.
A classic, bottom fermented dark beer. This full bodied yet easy drinking lager has a deep caramel colour and rich roasted malt flavour. Subtle nutty, biscuit and chocolate aromas are your first impression of this lager. On the palate, creamy and almost coffee like flavours invade your taste buds finishing with a distinctive leafy hop bitterness combined with some malt sweetness. A true dark quaffing beer.
5.5% ABV | 29 IBU
A noticeable deep amber to ruby colour with a dense off-white head.
Consistent front to finish hopping (37 IBU) with some pine, citrus rind, nectarine & grass flavours. The hopping is balanced by a biscuit-like malt body with hints of toffee & caramel and a pleasant fruitiness from the yeast.
A slight alcohol warmth and a light residual sweetness with a moderately dry finish.
