Chocolatey notes mix with roasted grain and lightly roasted coffee, and there’s a lactose quality that gives the whole nose a silky quality.


The common expectation of roasted coffee and chocolate are present in the flavour, but it takes a slightly adventurous turn by offering up a slightly creamy quality and a hint of floral and earthy hops. The taste is very fast as well, so let it linger to really get it all. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth, trending toward dry on the swallow, and despite claims it does leave some flavour behind.


Get your grill going and put on some juicy chicken breasts, served with citrus slaw.


Pour a dark amber colour with a mostly hazy body and low carbonation. A thin ring of bubbles around the glass is all that remains after the pour.

Manual Labour Beer Co. is a fresh-faced kid on the craft beer street in Edmonton. After spending the first part of their lives working the high-steel in Alberta, Richard and Nicole decided it was time to take their passion for beer and make a life from it. Manual Labor has only been brewing for the past year, but already has accolades on its sleeves. Their goal was to take the spirit of the hard work most of their friends and neighbours do each day, and translate that into an equally hard working pint to put in front of them. Producing a range of styles to suit the mighty thirst of their patrons, Manual Labour has a welcoming tap-room with four core beers and a rotation of many more depending on the season. The Born Ready is an American-style Brown Ale built on some funky hops and Maris Otter malt for a chocolatey and earthy flavour profile. Serves well at 8°C can cellar for up to six months.
