Harvest Hop and Malt
Niagara College students recently made a local ingredients beer with our malts and hops. The Winter Warmer was brewed to 6.7%, is a lovely reddish brown and has the classic Bertwell hop aroma. HH+M will sponsor one such brew per term, giving students a chance to work with aritsanal and local ingredients.

Brewers' testimonials below:
Sleeman's brewed a special beer for the University of Guelph's Ontario Agricultural College using all HH&M malts, made with Newdale barley, a descendant of OAC's groundbreaking barley varieties from decades ago. The university's response:
'On behalf of OAC and our OAC alumni a very big thank you for making it possible for them to enjoy Aggi Spirit beer on alumni weekend.
We heard only enthusiastic responses from our alumni about the quality of the beer, its great taste and the pleasure of being able to enjoy it in Johnston Hall and at the PCH venue for Conversation. Being able to have this beer helped to make the weekend more special.
And given how successful it was - we are looking forward to being able to serve one more batch for OAC's 140th celebration this September.'
Prud'homme Level 3 Class outside the Woolwich Arrow after a fine lunch and some Harvest Ales, made with our malt and Bertwell hops. The Prud'homme classes tour the HH&M operations as part of their in-depth education on beer. They took a bag of Pale malt with them and brewed a very tasty ale under the guidance of Paul Dickey, Cheshire Brewing.
