Slightly sweet malt and a touch of confectioners’ sugar, but foremost you’ll smell the roasted malt, it’s quite strong and leans into a very dark roast style.


Classic amber flavour but with a stronger and darker roast to the malt, leaning toward bitter. Once the roast eases up you’ll taste more of the sweeter elements along with some of the hoppier aspects. But none of this gets too unruly, the hops are quite mild and only lend a touch of earthy and leafy quality. The flavour is fast-paced and you’ll find it’s gone before you know.


Find yourself a spot that will make you a nice double-cut pork chop to go with this and you’ll be laughing.


Pours a dark amber colour with a hazy body and low carbonation. A frothy head pours from the can but will quickly disappear.

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. My Wife’s Red Ale is an Irish Red Ale that harkens back to Nicole’s favourite pint of choice in college. Balanced flavour with a refreshing kick that’s crisp and easy drinking. Serves well at 8°C and can cellar for up to six months.
