We’re not Belgian farmers, so we’ve taken their saisons as inspiration for our own. Praxis is what we like to describe as a “new world” saison. We greatly admire “old world” saisons so we do not spice our beer, we judiciously use hops (Styrian Golding and Amarillo), mash our Pilsner malt carefully, carbonate liberally, and tend to our house culture of yeast with the attention deserving of a housecat. We believe good saison can exist without tricks and gimmicks. It is for drinking.
Style: New World Saison
Hops: Magnum, Sytring Goldings, Amarillo
Yeast: House Dupont
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Carafoam

Some days we can’t understand just how we landed here. Through luck and tricks it often seems. On those days we turn to Impostor Syndrome, an American IPA that masquerades as a hoppy saison, and hope no one notices we shouldn’t be here. Loaded with Galaxy and Sorachi Ace hops, Impostor Syndrome has loads of tropical fruit character - almost coconut like - with an additional fruity contribution from the Brett Claussenii in our house mixed fermentation culture.
Style: Farmhouse IPA
Hops: Magnum, Galaxy, Sorachi Ace
Yeast: House Light Blend
Malts: Pilsner, Munich I, Carafoam, Caramunich I, Carahell
OG/ FG: 12 Plato/ 2 Plato
Both our brewers hail from the rocky island of Newfoundland while our masterful chef and co-owner Luis hails from sunny Portugal. The Flemish Cap lies outside the two hundred mile limit of Canada’s territorial waters and has long been a continuous mixing point for the two fishing cultures. International cooperation aside, you don’t need to be a maritime lawyer to enjoy this beer. Clean and crisp this beer is an exercise in old world simplicity with a little new world complexity.
A great man once said “we cannot play ducks and drakes with a native battery of idioms which prescribes egregious collocations of vocables.” We totally agree! To an academic, Inkhorn is a total throw down slam, meaning you’ve written a paper so full of pedantic language that only people who pontificate about Fellini films behind you in the line at the cinema will understand you. Our Inkhorn is a tribute to their folly. A dark, malty, and slightly tart bruin with notes of dried red fruit from both our malt selection and our brett lambicus house culture, Inkhorn is your perfect companion if you're interested in Mozart, James Joyce and ...other activities.
