The Brewhouse

Northern Wolf Fermentation Technologies Inc. has designed a custom-built brewhouse featuring the latest in brewing technology.

Our brew kettle is designed to minimize boiling times by stripping the wort of unwanted volatile compounds in a faster way than conventional boiling equipment. These minimal boiling times lead to minimal scorching of the wort which in turn results in a beer of the highest quality.

Our state of the art brewhouse allows us to produce almost any style of beer imaginable with excellent quality and consistency. Many of our brewhouse's features will be tested in the very near future with limited edition barrel aged beers.

Our Beer

Midian Blonde Lager 5% ABV 17 IBU-This highly drinkable yet complex brew has many subtle layers of flavour and is produced using a fine combination of Briess pale malt, noble hops,  and very low fermentation temperatures.

The herbal noble hop aroma and taste are provided by Northern Brewer and Saaz hops. Lightly hopped with an appropriate malty balance, this brew is surprisingly light to the palate.

Foam structure and lacing ("glass cling") are excellent, helping to enhance aroma development when poured in the appropriate glassware. 

Blackprinz Dark Ale 5.2% ABV 20 IBU-This unique dark ale has a refreshing and highly drinkable taste profile exhibiting noble hop taste and aroma over a well-balanced 2-row malt body.

A German husk-less specialty dark malt contributes subtle flavour and aroma notes from chocolate, coffee, and vanilla for those with a sensitive enough palate. Its creamy smooth flavour and high drinkability can be attributed to advanced all-natural hopping techniques employed during its manufacture which result in extra short wort boiling times. This provides Blackprinz Dark Ale with a superior fresh taste due to minimized scorching of the wort and the addition of one pound of freshly ground Mayan cocoa beans.

Red Don Strong Ale 7.2% ABV 27 IBU-Caramel malt provides subtle roasted flavours to this very well balanced special red ale. As all Midian beers, it is made with 100% malt for an excellent balance between alcohol content and body. Northern Brewer provides the bitterness and Brambling Cross provides the flavour and aroma. Caramel flavours mix with stone fruit for a well balanced roasted malty bitterness.

The Science Behind Our Beer

Brewing great beer requires the perfect balance between using the very best of ingredients and using the very best of processes.

Midian Brewing Company uses only top quality malt, hops, and yeast obtained from recognized microbrewery industry suppliers. The water quality in Windsor-Essex County is second to none in the world. Our beers are designed from the water up, with attention to every quality detail specific for the style.

Our brewery has been custom designed by Northern Wolf Fermentation Technologies Inc. and is based on peer reviewed brewing science publications from the last five years. The brewery has features to minimize wort boiling times at reduced temperatures. The wort is mildly heated for a minimum amount of time, leading to smoother beer due to minimized scorching.

Coming soon to the LCBO

Midian beer has been poured at Canada's biggest beer shows to excellent reviews. Our Blackprinz Dark Ale compared very favourably to a well established Irish Dark ale brand also being sold at the Toronto Gourmet Food and Wine Show according to many customers. The fine folks at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) have just given us the approval letter (NTP) for the sale of our Midian Blonder Lager at provincial LCBO outlets. Stay tuned for more info! Our beer can be purchased at our retail store located at 1335 Wyandotte Street East in Windsor. Our store hours are 4-10pm. Call 519 257 0327 anytime between 9am and 11pm for service.

Quality Control

Midian Brewing Company recognizes that consistently producing great beer requires a rigorous quality control program. This is the reason we have invested nearly as much on laboratory equipment as in the actual brewery: to be able to have complete control of the whole brewing process. Water, malt, hops, yeast, wort and beer are continually monitored throughout production for quality using a variety of laboratory methods. The result is a beer of unmatched and consistent drinkability.
