You may have noticed we have an Amber Ale named Hygge. Here is why... 

Hygge (pronounced "hoo-gah") is a Danish word that has no direct translation in English but is often described as a feeling of coziness, comfort, and contentment. It is a cultural concept that is often associated with the winter months in Denmark and Norway, when the days are shorter and the weather is colder. Hygge is about creating a warm, inviting atmosphere and enjoying the simple pleasures of life with friends and family. We released in winter as this Amber Ale has notes of toasted toffee malts mingled with citrus, fruit and pine.

As we reach the tail end of winter in Canada, this is the last opportunity to squeeze the last bit of cozy out of the season.

We picked 5 movies we love to pair with hot popcorn, cold beer, big blankets, and of course, a friend.

  1. "The Notebook" (2004) - A romantic drama about a young couple, Noah and Allie, who fall in love during the 1940s but are forced to separate due to societal pressures. Years later, they meet again and rekindle their love.
  2. "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993) is a romantic comedy-drama about a recently widowed man who, with the help of his son Jonah, moves to Seattle and becomes a national sensation after his son calls into a radio talk show to find him a new wife. The film explores themes of love, loss, and second chances.
  3. "The Big Sick" (2017) - A romantic comedy based on the real-life relationship of the film's co-writers, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. The film tells the story of Kumail, a Pakistani comedian, and Emily, a grad student, who fall in love despite their cultural differences and the disapproval of Kumail's traditional Muslim family.
  4. "The Shape of Water" (2017) - A romantic fantasy drama about a mute janitor, Elisa, who works at a secret government laboratory and falls in love with an amphibious creature that is being held there. The film explores themes of love, acceptance, and the power of communication.
  5. "The Fault in Our Stars" (2014) - A romantic drama based on the bestselling novel of the same name. The film tells the story of two teenagers, Hazel and Gus, who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love.
