Our Beers

At Royal Docks we strive to create new, exciting and forward-thinking beers focusing on quality and drinkability. We take inspiration from the classic brewing traditions of England as well as our peers in the craft brewing industry who bring vibrant new flavors and ideas to the world of beer.

Whether we are developing new techniques, adjusting conventional methods, or bringing the forgotten styles back into the limelight, we create each beer with the same level of care, attention and respect.

We brew beer that has a wide appeal because at Royal Docks we love to drink beer that can suite any mood. As the harshest critics of our own work, we will only release beers that are of a high standard, well balanced and drinkable.

Our signature beer has its beginning in the great taste of European style lagers. Natural yeasts, locally gown malt and hops provide for the aromatic flavor that won't confuse the palate. This recipe originated from the East Anglia region of the United Kingdom and was brought across the pond for your taste pleasure.

Brewed in the time honored German ale tradition of Köln, Germany, 67 Alaska is very pale with a mild though assertive flavor from noble-pedigree hops from the Hallertau region round out the aroma and sweetness of Continental malts.

Brewer’s Specifics:
Malt: Weyermann Pils, The Swaen Hell
Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Hallertau Mittelfruh
IBU: 23
OG: 12.5 °P
FG: 2.7 °P

At Royal Docks, we simply adore intellectually challenging brews that beckon one to explore their depths and parse each nuanced sip, but this ain't one of those beers. See, there's thinkin' beer and there's drinkin' beer - and Backyard Crusher is a drinkin' beer. Sure, we could tell you all about the Egyptian black lime, Mediterranean sea-salt and Citra hops that make this tangy golden quencher so easy on the tongue, but that would defeat the purpose.

Cantina Mojito Sour

Born in America but with a soul recalling a distant English ancestry, Tanglefoot is one of the flagship India Pale Ales from the Royal Docks Brewing Company.
Tanglefoot is an American IPA in that it is a decidedly hoppier cousin to the historical British beers from which the style’s name is borrowed. The beer features a piney and resinous nose with a pleasant, rounded bitterness from healthy doses of American Nugget, Cascade and Mosaic hops.
Tanglefoot reveals its storied English heritage as it offsets the massive hop charge with a full bodied palate and sturdy malt backbone thanks to the British-grown, floor-malted Maris Otter and Harrington barley; prized throughout the world for their superior flavour and aromatics.
The Tanglefoot Legend:
The 12th Century poet and priest, La3amon was the first to chronicle the Arturian tradition. He is also the source of the legend of Pendragon’s ales.

Original Middle English:
Beore wes iworht in Aualun
mið wiȝlel-fulle craften
to don ure vniwinen wa

Æft he likeð þan voxe
driueð wod and wild
ȝeond dalef & ȝeond dunes
bi-læfde mid heore tungen
hoe lette baðe ablenden & teȝen
heom lette fæt to-dælden dome
La3amon

Translation:
A beer wrought in Avalon
with magic crafted
to do our enemies woe

driving them like a fox
mad and wild
over hills and dales
leaving them with tongues
both tied and blind
and their feet tangled dumb Read Less

Someone once said that brewing an IPA with fruit was a crime. Well, call the cops. An obscene amount of passionfruit coupled with about an acre of Citra and Simcoe hops produces an IPA loaded with juicy, peachy-passion flavour and aromatics that are simply steaming with tropical hop character.

Legend has it that King Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, possessed two magical ales. One of those ales was "wrought in Avalon" to refresh his warriors' spirits and imbue them with the courage of a red dragon.

Made with the freshest possible hops (picked in the morning, in the brew by early afternoon), this third edition of our ongoing collaboration with our local hopyard is relatively light and refreshing. The hops provide a pleasant farm-field freshness that presents with a grassy and floral mellowness that belies the back-breaking work of harvesting hops.

Daemonium presents innocently. Dressed in the pale colours of a far lesser brew, she beckons the unsuspecting close with beguiling aromas and puckish, tingling bubbles. At first furtive sip, however, the ruse it up and the trap is sprung. Too late they see their blunder. Too late they witness the pleasant golden maiden stripped to reveal the ancient face of the demon waiting; its true strength laid bare. Its claws grabbing. Its teeth bared and gnashing. Read Less

According to legend, as told by Beedle the Bard, he who unites the Deathly Mallows is invincible. We thought that was a nice goal to have, so we stared fumbling with ingredients and cans up with this magical elixir. A Milk Stout that starts with a whif of smoky roast and culminates in a delicious toasted marshmallow sweetness that is enough to remind you of younger days around the campfire but not so much to make you forget you're drinking beer.
