Oliver Square Small Batch Tap
It’s always fun to create the Brewsters beers that people know and love, but the true passion of any brewer is to try new things, experiment, and just see what works. We create small batches of different styles of beer at our Oliver Square Edmonton brewpub to satisfy both our curiosity and yours. And when they’re gone, they’re gone.

One of the newest styles to excite brewers and drinkers alike, Brut IPA first appeared in California in late 2017 and is notable for its effervescence and extreme dryness. Pale straw to pale gold, this style is intended to be lighter in color and body than a typical American IPA. For that reason, the mash is often some combination of Pilsner malt, wheat, corn, and/or rice. The addition of an amylase enzyme reduces the final gravity even further. Bitterness is also kept to a minimum. Fruit-forward flavors and aromas are achieved by late hopping, dry hopping, and the use of neutral ale yeast strains. In short, these beers are highly attenuated, late hopped IPAs inspired by the appearance and mouthfeel of Champagne. Hop additions in our version happened in the whirlpool, fermenter and maturation tank. Adding the hops in this manner has created almost no bitterness, huge citrus aroma and flavour.
