Ships of Collingwood

This is our chance to have some fun brewing seasonally relevant beer. Drawing inspiration from the Collingwood shipyards and Michael’s rich brewing history, these are the Ships of Collingwood. Stay tuned for more, because you never know where our next bit of inspiration will come from.


Huronic Tripel

ABV 8% · IBU 35

Available in select LCBO stores Across Ontario and at the Brewery

This highly carbonated Belgian-Style Tripel has a clean maltiness, lots of spicy depth, and an evidence of alcohol that peeks through complex orange and mango flavours. 

Named after Lake Huron, “The S.S. Huronic” was the first steel-hulled ship built in the Collingwood shipyards. During the Great Lakes Storm of 1913, aka the “White Hurricane”, it ran aground on Whitefish Point in Michigan. More fortunate than most, her crew and passengers survived. In the late 1930s, her cabins were removed and passenger service ended. In 1950, she was finally scrapped in Hamilton, Ontario. Though she’s no longer with us, her legend lives on with a beer that’s as complex as her past. 



Germanic Bock


 ABV 6.1% · IBU 30

This rich and toasty German Strong Lager begins with tones of slight caramel and dark fruitiness and finishes with a hint of sweetness.

The 165-foot “Germanic” was reportedly the last wooden steamship built in Collingwood in 1899. She began her career on the Upper Great Lakes for the Great Northern Transit Company and succumbed to a raging fire in 1917. Yes, she’s lost, but she’s most certainly not forgotten.   


The Majestic

 ABV 6.1% 


The Majestic was a wooden passenger and a package freight propeller built in 1895 at Collingwood. It launched April 23, 1895. With 800 passengers aboard, she took part in ceremonies at the opening of the Canadian Zoo Canal, September 7, 1895. She mostly operated in the Georgian Bay Mackinac Island route. Unfortunately, she was destroyed by fire in Sarnia, December 15, 1915.

At 6.1% all./vol. Side launch Majestic Saison is quite fruity with a moderate banana nose, flavours of banana, orange and clove and some light peppery spice.



ABV 5.5%


Our Festbier is a 5.5% fuller bodied, moderately hopped, seasonal lager. It has the colour of a harvest moon, great mouthfeel and lots of flavour. This type of beer, typically brewed for the Oktoberfest season, truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating.
