4240 KMS - Brown IPA on Oak Spirals
A throwback brew, this rich brown ale will bring you back to the craft beers you fell in love with years ago. Big malt backbone with lots of roasted and caramel malts. But behind those malts is a wallop of North American hops. Dank and resinous this ale will remind you of the past. Finished off with a touch of American oak to round out the flavour, this ale has everything
A collaboration with Bomber Brewing.

Sam's Take on 4240 Kms:
Blair and I met at the CBAs in Ottawa a few years back and hit it off straight away. We mane had a few beers and decided to do a collab...maybe. This ended up being Spicy Nuggs. I drove out to west with my family a couple summers ago and we brewed it out at Bomber Brewing. Blair wanted to come out to Sawdust City and reciprocate the collab. Timing worked out and he headed here just shy of Bombers 5th Anniversary. It also happens to be the 5th year for Sawdust City at our home location in Gravenhurst. We decided to play on the theme of 5, hence 5 malts and 5 hops. A brown IPA seemed like a good style for that ingredient list. The 5th anniversary is also the “wood” anniversary, so we tossed in some oak spirals for good measure. The name 4240, our marketing manager Britt came up with that one. It’s the distance in km between Sawdust City and Bomber Brewing (if you only drive in Canada).
