Go big and stay home

Here are five big-bottled brews perfect for staying put

Long Dark Voyage to Uranus // Sawdust City Brewery

Bitter, bracingly dry and rich, this imperial stout boasts a lie-on-the-couch ABV of 9.5 per cent.

Baldr // Little Beasts Brewery

With peach playing off notes of coriander and clove and bread crust malt, this saison aged in chardonnay barrels with peaches, is one you can sit and ponder

Ancient and Vast from Which we Spring // Half Hours on Earth

A fantastic lager brewed with pilsner malt and farro this 5 per cent beer is a little grainy, a little funky and a little nutty but it comes in a big 750mL bottle.

Huell Melon // Reverence Barrel Works

This red-wine barrel aged Brett saison from
relative newcomers in Cambridge was dry hopped with Huell Melon lending it a highly fruity, citrus character. Bonus: if you can go pick it up grab the magnum.

10 Bitter Years // Black Oak Brewing

Your fridge needs a no-nonsense double IPA. This Ontario classic has stood the test of time and won’t let you down.
