ABOUT

Founded in 2011 by Bill and Jeff, Light the Lamp Brewery was built off a group of dads with two things in common; their love for hockey and great beer. Back in 2010, they traveled to Europe searching for the world's best beer.  After having talked to some local brew-masters in Munich, the group of dads realized that the world's best beer doesn't come from a place; it comes from a mindset. Great beer needs to be accompanied by lively conversation, laughter, and most importantly memories. These brew-masters accepted the group of dads as their own, and even referred to them as their colleagues. They much rather enjoyed being called colleagues!

 

After years of research, development, and plenty of sampling, the colleagues began to brew their own beer. Up first was the infamous Red Line Ale that's still on tap today. Inspired by that love of hockey, Light the Lamp has always stayed true to it's roots in naming their beer. All of their craft beer carries a hockey title and a story, from the 1980 Miracle American Ale to the Shorthanded IPA, each beer has it's own journey.

HEATING UP AND COOLING DOWN

When the mash is ready, it's pumped into the lauter tun, where wort is separated from the grain husks (don't worry, wort is just a cool word meaning "sweet liquid"). The wort is then collected in a kettle where it is brought to a carefully controlled boil before the hops are added. After the boiling is complete, the wort gets transferred into a whirlpool for the wort separation stage.

MILLING UP AND MASHING DOWN

Every great process starts with milling and mashing. Different malts are crushed together to break up the grain kernels  to create grist. The grist is then transferred to a mash tun where it's mixed and heated with water. This process uses natural enzymes in the malt to break the malt's starch down into sugars

INTO YOUR MOUTH AND BELLY

Once the beer is matured and ready to go, it's time for the most important part of the process. That's right, consumption!

FERMENTING AND GROWING UP

Yeast is added to begin fermentation. Yeast converts wort into beer by producing alcohol, a wide variety of flavors, and carbon dioxide. After this process, the beer needs to mature in order to develop and create a smooth finish.
