Canadian Pale Ale –  CPA®

It’s feisty but polite.  Eh-men!

What’s a Canadian Pale Ale style?

Like you, we at Old Tomorrow are a pretty easy-going crew and we set out to create a beer that would reflect the kicked back but get ‘er done style we Canadians are known for.  Canada may be a small country but we’re mighty on the world stage and we all work hard to punch above our weight – all the while maintaining our friendly, open and easy-going demeanor.

And that’s the character we hand-crafted into Old Tomorrow CPA®.  We challenged our brew master to make a beer that would deliver a nice full flavour of an ale but still be approachable and smooth…without the bitter aftertaste of traditional ales.

Old Tomorrow Canadian Pale Ale is more approachable and easy drinking compared to the hoppier American Pale Ale (APA) and India Pale Ale (IPA) styles. Our CPA® gives you a great balance between a satisfying, full-bodied beer without the bitterness of APA’s and IPA’s – so the finish is clean and, well, polite.

We’re proud to be Canadian and wanted to create a flavour that Canadians could call their own.  Enjoy this award-winning beer made especially for you, Canada!


Light caramel copper colour. Slightly hazy clarity and a friendly sparkle. Nice off-white head that laces the glass.


Blended fruit notes. A hint of citrus balances the subdued biscuit aroma.


Full-bodied, refreshing & satisfying – yet has no bitter aftertaste.  Fills the taste buds with nice malty undertones yet finishes smooth & clean.  Delicious as a session beer or versatile with a range of foods because there is no residual hoppiness to interfere.

Alcohol by Volume

Food Pairings

Old Tomorrow Canadian Pale Ale pairs well with:

  • smoky or spicy barbecued meets (beef, chicken and pork),
  • creamy cheeses (Brie, Havarti, goat)
  • cheeses with strong flavours (aged cheddar, blue and gorgonzola)
  • a range of spicy fare (ethnic dishes, curries, salsa)
  • dark chocolates as its nuanced mild hop profile complements chocolate’s natural bitterness while its sweet malt results in a smooth tasty finish.
