There is more to beer than simply what it tastes like. The best beer deserves to be enjoyed at the right place and the right time. Where you can hear yourself think, surrounded by landscapes you’ve never seen.

Growing up in Canada, the outdoors wasn’t just somewhere we went, it was part of who we were. Our childhood was filled with places that changed us; places we can still see when we close our eyes that made the world feel bigger.

No matter what we did with our lives, we promised never to lose that spirit of the wood runners that came before us. Our beer was brewed for the wild, for the untamed traveler, and for places unseen. Our flavours are inspired by memories of hockey on a mirrored frozen lake, fishing at a secret spot only we knew of, and campfire dinners under a bed of stars. While each beer is unique, they all should be paired with crisp open air and good company.

We don’t intend to just tell our stories, our beer demands you seek your own. Whether it is deep in the woods or out on the lake, get outside, drink good beer, and live with intent.

CHEERS TO THE EVERYDAY ADVENTURE!

The region in which Kingsville is located was the home of the Iroquois tribe. When French Canadian settlers known as Woodrunners came South exploring mainland Canada, they were met by the Native Iroquois. There was a peaceful understanding between the new settlers and the Iroquois sharing European farming techniques and knowledge of the local land. Our original beer, the Woodrunner Stout is named in their likeness. Our can pays homage to this peaceful relationship between the Woodrunners and Iroquois in many ways.

The deep shades of blue and herringbone represent the way the land and lakes meet on the borders of Essex County to sustain life. The avian silhouette on each can represent the local predatory birds of the region including Osprey, Peregrine Falcons, Cooper’s Hawks, and Sharp Shinned Hawks.

The tagline, “Pour ceux qui errent” means “For those who wander”. This symbolizes the adventurous spirit the Woodrunners possessed, and is reflected through all those adventurers who enjoy our beer. Those who live their lives intentionally.

Finally, 127. This number emulates our commitment to excellence through founder Marty Turco’s record number of NCAA wins as a member of the Michigan Wolverines Hockey Team from 1994-98.
