About Annex Ale Project


Annex Ale Project is devoted to good beer and great conversations. We're curious and unconventional and every beer we brew is the result of serious experimentation. For a long time, we've wanted to make the kind of beer that would appeal to beer drinkers and big thinkers. Now that's all we do.

Forward Progress   (3.79/5)

An aroma-forward Pale Ale, hopped with Citra and Mosaic varietals. It's our take on the classic North American Pale Ale, with a hoppy bouquet and a long, harmonious finish: progressive, sessionable, and full of flavour.

Metes & Bounds   (3.68/5)

To understand the space this beer occupies in the brewing landscape, all you have to do is walk its boundaries. Begin at the corner that values flavour above all else. Continue to the unmistakable aromas of a great IPA. Keep going until you sense the balance of a pale ale. Then arrive back where you started, and do another lap.

Paradise Found   (3.71/5)

Tart with a biscuit/bread note on the finish. The ginger greets you right up front but is subtle and complimentary to the sour notes. Not overly aggressive in its pallet. This beer is a perfect summer drink. Would pair well with cucumber, peaches, salads, and hot summer nights. Very mild aroma. Notes of lemon peel, coriander, orange, toast, ginger, lemongrass, and pineapple.

Book Learnin'   (3.82/5)

To celebrate the culmination of an arduous brewers exam season (it's a real thing) our brewers refocused their tunnel vision out of textbooks and onto the recipe sheet. Introducing Book Learnin' Aussie NEIPA. The brewing team spent time crunching numbers on water profile and the ideal dry hop temperatures to affect the terpenes, mercaptans, and thiols (and some other words that went right over the head of this humble newsletter copywriter). It is aggressively hopped with Ella, Enigma, Galaxy, and Vic Secret - all varieties from Oz. The aromas of stone fruit and melon just pop right out at you. Book Learnin' is a celebration of higher education in action.

Mutually Exclusive   (3.85/5)

We invited our friends at Sea Change down to brew a collab that commemorates our feelings about Valentines; a cold black IPA cut from the same cloth as our hearts. This Black IPA is citrus and pine forward, black in colour but not too roasted. It is all about balance and collaboration with a ridiculous aroma thanks to a dry hop done at a cold temperature.

Move over Pumpkin, there's a new spiced seasonal around. This week we are excited to announce Comfortable Deception Sweet Potato Porter. With a mix of roasted and raw sweet potatoes in the mash and the boil, Comfortable Deception has earthy notes, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla to drive home the illusion that this liquid is actually a solid side dish. Crystal malt and the addition of lactose contribute to gently sweet caramel notes that balance the dark chocolate and roasted flavours.
