The West Wind Black IPA

The West Wind

The West Wind blows over stormy waters. This black IPA is dedicated to Tom Thomson on the 100th anniversary of his death on Canoe Lake, an enduring mystery yet to be solved.

A portion of the proceeds is donated in support of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Design Inspired by Tom Thomson, The West Wind, 1916-17.


Tom Thomson is among the celebrated collective of Canadian artists, known as The Group of Seven (thus, 7% alc./vol.). At 90 IBUs, this beer is set to satisfy big IPA lovers and dark ale drinkers alike. You’ll catch a hop-forward aroma with a scent of chocolate and raisin. The toasted wheat and chocolate malts develop The West Wind’s dark colour and create a deep malt character that softens the hoppy brew. – Concocted by Andrew Walsh and Mike Pawlick.
