In connection to the brewery building’s roots as Niagara’s First Telephone Exchange, instead of naming The Exchange numbers their beer. Our numbers provide insights into the beers’ flavour profiles; the lower numbers more approachable and sessionable, the higher numbers more flavourful and intense.
Our signature range of craft brews
This amber ale has a subtle hop backbone that shows off a complex malt character with crystal malts from Chile. They display the common characteristics of carmel, toffee and lightly roasted flavors of crystal malts but with more depth and presence. Malty goodness, medium body.
This robust porter features roasted UK malts, Chilean caramel malts and East Kent Golding hops. Watch for this in casks for a true UK real ale experience.
