Our passion is to create beers that are new, unique, and interesting. We brew a wide variety of different styles of beer that give our menu a wide range of flavours. Whether you’re a novice hoping to try your first sip of a craft beer or a seasoned veteran who’s sampled every beer across the province, the wide range of ever-changing-crazy-juice spewing from our taps will excite anyone interested in discovering beer’s true potential. At Daft, we are particularly fond of sour beers and only use real ingredients. Not a drop of extract has ever or will ever find it’s way into our brews.
Unlike the majority of breweries, we do not believe in mainstays (except for our Barenaked Lite Lager, which is now a mainstay. We will flip flop on this stance as we please). Instead, we aim to always have a beer that fits within broad style categories (easy drinkers, sours, fruitted, dark, etc). This gives us the freedom to experiment, to try new things, and to constantly learn and improve our craft. We aim to be bold and creative.
Our daft menu and bottle list is in constant flux – here’s what’s available now.

It has happened. We are in the LCBO and The Beer Store!
You’ll start seeing us across Kingston and in a select handful of other beer stores and LCBOs across the province, with more to come over the next few weeks/months/years/eons.
We have made Follow Your Nose – Blackberry Sour IPA our flagship beer for a lot of reasons.
It’s beautiful and delicious and we absolutely love it.
It represents the best parts of the types of beers we specialize in and love to make – it’s a sour, it’s an IPA, it’s fruited. It’s all the things.
This beer has been carefully crafted to be tart, but not too sour. Hazy and massively juicy. Hoppy, but not bitter. Approachable but complex.
Blackberries (from our heavy handed puree addition) initially flood the senses, but quickly transition into a cascade of tropical and citrus notes across your palette thanks to large dry hopping doses of Sabro and Simcoe.
