We're pleased to announce the release of our newest Boxed Connoisseur Ingredient Kit:  Rye PA

After giving out our recipe for Rye Pale Ale, repeatedly, we decided it was time to box it up!  It's a smooth amber ale, with spice malt notes in both aroma and flavor, with hints of tropical fruit in the aroma, flavor and finish, from one of the new American hops.  Around 5 % ABV. You'll love this beer!


Get ready for warmer weather and try one of these:

  • Summer Ale   or
  • Belgian Witbier 

As always, our kits are derived from our own tested recipes or our own or customers' winning recipes (not a number cruncher’s).  We draw upon our full inventory for ingredients and inspiration and Niagara Tradition Kits are available exclusively through our store or website.
