BREWERY

Our brewery sits at the back of a century-old building that was originally built to house a heavy machinery garage, then to be occupied by a printing press before being transformed into a brewing facility. The space houses a 15bbl brewing system that produces roughly 1850 litre batches at a time, with a couple of tanks that occupy closer to 3700 litres of beer. Our lagers and ales ferment and age anywhere between three and eight weeks on average, in both vertical and horizontal stainless-steel vessels. Some of our rare specialty ales spend several months and even years in second-use barrels with wild microorganisms to create complex and intricate flavours.

BEER

World-class lagers and ales of distinction, brewed with an unwavering commitment to balance and drinkability.

Inspired by a once-in-a-lifetime trek to the Czech Republic, this lager is brewed entirely with whole Bohemian hop flowers and Moravian barley resulting in a deep golden beer with nuanced hop flavours and an elegant malt profile. Simple and uncomplicated while remaining delicious and engaging.

Grace & Gratitude

In a quest to create the most refreshing beer in the world, we came up with Rhapsody. Lightly soured and fermented as dry as possible, this peach infused ale has a  champagne-like effervescence, is light on the palate, and finishes with delicate tannins from the addition of Japanese Green Tea. Supremely thirst-quenching.

Alcohol 3.8%

Rhapsody

Brewed for those days where you don’t want to do much but sit around and drink beer all day in the sun. Light and crisp with medium bitterness, this lager is best paired with mindless activities.

Fog Ducker

Each year the release of Discretion means that warmer days are on the way. Brewed with several dried fruits, Hibiscus, and rosehips, this low alcohol offering drinks effervescent and light, redefining the term “refreshing” with every sip.

Alcohol 3.5%

Discretion

Brewed with a nod to the West Coast with a subtle dash of New England flavour, Rabble Rouser is a unique IPA that delivers a well-balanced hop attack with flavours of peach, mango, and pine. Dangerously drinkable with a firm but pleasantly bitter finish.

Rabble Rouser

We brew Solo Mission every so often to allow our brewers to further understand the bitterness, flavour, and aroma of a single hop varietal. Equally fun is how much our guests and customers enjoy following the changes from batch to batch based on what hop we decide to showcase. Always crisp, clean, and well… hoppy!

Solo Mission: CRYO COLUMBUS

Brewed with only one hop varietal that changes batch to batch, this Italian-inspired lager is packaged young, unfiltered, and dry-hopped. Quickly becoming a classic at Tooth and Nail, each new release shows how much a change in hops can influence the end result.

Alcohol 4.8%

Lupo Solitario: WHOLE CONE HERSBRUCKER

Born from the idea that we don’t always need to brew to a certain style but can assemble ingredients to create something unique, Tabula Rasa is hoppy, fruity, and unlike any traditional ale you’re familiar with. New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops bring white wine-like flavours, all wrapped up in a spicy rye malt bill.

Alcohol 4.5%

Tabula Rasa

True farmhouse ales are dry, spicy, fruity, and hoppy. They are also hard to come by. We brew our version of this classic ale with barley, wheat, oats, and rye to emulate the flavours found in some of the classics, then hop it with old world hops for a sense of rusticity. Complex and refreshing.

FAQ’S

What types of beer to you brew?

At Tooth and Nail we brew a wide variety of styles (and non-styles). We are inspired by both tradition and innovation, and always try to put an uncompromising stamp of quality on our products. We generally don’t adhere to the latest trend, but rather provide beers of depth, balance, and high quaffability.

What does the name Tooth and Nail mean?

Tooth and Nail is an homage to the earliest craft breweries in North America who at the time, were going up against “The Big Three” breweries of the era. Breweries like Boston Beer, Anchor, and Sierra Nevada (to name a few) had to fight “Tooth and Nail” just to get their beer on a liquor store shelf or on a bar’s tap. Without their vision and integrity, the craft beer scene wouldn’t be what it is today.

Where can I get your beer?

For the time being, our beer is available fresh on draught at our brewpub, is available to take home from our retail store, and is available for Ontario-Wide shipping. You can also find many of our products at the finest beer establishments throughout Ontario.

I love “x” beer, but it’s not available at the moment. When will it be back?

As Tooth and Nail was primarily built to service the brewpub, we have had many brands over the years, all of which wouldn’t have been released if we weren’t proud of them. That said, we have a finite brewing space and cannot possibly make everything available all of the time. Our suggestion is that if you really like something, enjoy it while it’s around!

Do you take reservations for the brewpub?

We do not. First come, first served. If you are planning on coming by with a larger group, please feel free to call 613 695 4677 in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you!

BEER TO GO

Our products are canned and bottled in-house using our own canning and bottling machines. Crafted with care and packaged without compromise, we keep our beer cold and sell it fresh. While we do our best to keep several styles available, shortages do occur and brands do rotate and evolve. While some of our specialty products may change and develop in flavour over time, the vast majority of our beer is brewed to be consumed as fresh as possible.

Our beer is currently available for purchase through the following methods:

Come visit us! Our retail store is located inside the brewpub at 3 Irving Avenue in the heart of Hintonburg, Ottawa’s greatest neighbouhood.

Order from the comfort of home! Place your order online and simply come by the brewery store to pick up your pre-paid case of beer.

Have your order shipped across the province! We offer Ontario-Wide shipping for those out-of-towners who can’t do without our delicious brews. Orders ship out by courier Monday-Thursday and generally arrive within 1-2 business days depending on your location.
