I produce Dominion Beers to tell stories, speak of history or people. I also let fate inspire me.
Yukon Gold- 9.7% abv This is the first beer brewed under the Dominion banner. It is brewed with 100% Maris Otter pale malt from East Anglia England. The hops are Bullion and Bramling Cross. The original root stock for both of these varieties was Manitoban wild hops, which were crossed with English root stock. The beer is 9.7% because the Yukon Gold Rush started in that year. The beer has be matured in cognac casks and has acquired a lovely aroma of oranges and cream. The taste is of sweet malt with a rounded bitterness.
Amber Porter-5.5% abv This beer was inspired by the name of a teller in my local bank. Her name tag said ‘Amber Porter’. This is a dark beer brewed with Maris Otter pale malt, amber malt, and chocolate malt. The hops are Bramling Cross and Cascade. The result is a smoky brew with hints of coffee, and chocolate, and with a long lasting bitterness.
