"Looks dark, tastes light. It's Ontario's favourite dark lager. A dark beer that is slowly brewed with Canadian grown malted barley, specialty coloured malts, imported hops and pure cultured brewers yeast. Waterloo Dark is for the beer drinker who likes a dark craft brewed beer without the filling heaviness.

Waterloo Dark is an excellent match for wild game, Caribou steaks, pheasant, roast duck or even wild boar. A perfect addition as an ingredient and just as easy to drink with the meal."

never had it, but I'd suggest finding a decent pale lager recipe and add enough Carafa Special II to get it to ~30 SRM. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but its a start.

If you track one down, or experiment and like the results, I'd love to hear about it. Cheers!

I too would love to find a clone recipe (Waterloo dark is one of my favorite beers that I have found nigh impossible to get Stateside).

sorry for the zombie thread, but I am also wondering if anyone has tried to make a clone of Brick's Waterloo Dark. I travel to Waterloo Ontario on business occasionally and do like this beer. any thing changed in the past few years on this front?
