After a few incidents of fate and circumstance, Fairweather opened its doors in May 2017. The brewery is home in a revitalized warehouse in west Hamilton’s Ainslie Wood neighbourhood. In addition to a taproom and bottle shop, they have a 60 seat patio, and a 10,000 square foot production facility which doubles as an event space.
Whether the brewers area exploring bright hoppy IPAs, rich, silky stouts and porters, elegant, classic continental lagers, or fruited and oak-aged beers that explore the edges of what beer can be, Fairweather will never be satisfied. They will tirelessly strive to create the best beer you will find anywhere. Period.
Cheap Seats is an easy drinking, hazy little hoppy beer that will let you go on with your day after you have a couple. Nice, crisp, dry finish across the palate. Notes of berries, citrus, resin, and jelly beans.
Session IPAs are hop-forward ales that are similar to pale ales and IPAs in terms of hop aroma and flavour, but are made to a lower degree of alcohol, usually between 3%-5% abv. The style takes inspiration from the great low ABV beers of England, but often are brewed with American or Southern Hemisphere hops.
Cheap Seats is made with mostly 2-row pilsner malt, and a little flaked oats for added texture. The hops are a split between El Dorado, known for notes of tropical fruit flavours reminiscent of pineapple and mango with a resinous back note, and the Simcoe hop, known for packing a punch of stone fruit, pine, and citrus zest aromas.
