Fresh unopened oysters. Shucker's choice, but let us know if there's something you prefer and we'll do our best. Consume within 7 days.
Pear, apricot, lemon. A hint off-dry. A civilized bubble for any night of the week.
Penedes, Spain. 100% Organic. Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada, in the traditional style. Dry, crisp apple, peach, and a bit of biscuit. We always carry this wine, because it overdelivers big time.
"Somewhat reserved, classically styled and proportioned in the blanc de blancs style, with toasty and yeasty, lemon and white chocolate, almond, and brioche flavours in the classic register. Length and depth, and balance, are excellent." J. Szabo.
100% Melon de Bourgogne; Methode Ancestrale (so not crazy bubbly). Bright and crisp, with perky effervescence and a touch of sweetness. With light notes of citrus, rose petals, and herbs, it’s balanced perfectly to be easy-drinking, fun, and refreshing.
40/40/20 Chard/P.Noir/Meunier. Amaretto, peaches, roasted nuts and a certain 'berry' character - this has some swagger.
Chardonnay 55%, Pinot Noir 35%, Pinot Meunier 10%. Citrus, white flowers, lemon rind, and moss, with delicate effervescence. Beauty with a PEI Oyster.
Agrapart is OG grower Champagne. 100% Chard. "Bread dough, sliced cooked apples, minerals, steel" - Mr. Suckling. And he's not wrong - this is like the perfect Oyster champagne, with beautiful balance and terrific length from someone whose budget goes into the grape, not the marketing.
A zippy little white blend, like a bag of lemons dusted with sea salt. 55% l’Acadie, 20% Riesling, 15% Muscat, 10% Sauvignon Blanc, coming at you from the pride of Nova Scotia.
Our House wine. A great accompaniment to the Oyster. The 2019 is 40% each Chard and Riesling (native yeasts) and 20% Pinot Blanc (cultured yeast), fermented separately and blended prior to bottling. Expect crisp apple, citrus, and white peach.
Dry, medium body, with yellow peach, apple and a slightly nutty finish. A little more character than some in this category...
Attractively chalky and crisp, with a nice nuttiness and zest. Pear fruit, a bit of lees texture (there was some battonage). A great, easygoing wine that has character and drinkability. Pares Balta is 100% organic and biodynamic, if that matters...
Loire. Classic seafood pairing. Think lemon, pear, mineral and a bit saline through the finish. GREAT with the Oyster, and we're so glad to have it back.
Niepoort is known for Port, but they also make this great dry white. A blend from a bunch of lesser-known grapes, this comes across as almost austere and mineral, with herbaceous and citrussy notes. It could age, but why bother when it begs so pleasantly for the Oyster?
Green melon, cucumber, white flower and spice. It is medium-full bodied, rounded with a sense of core minerality and very good length. Expect some lime and green fruit on the finish. 12.5%abv
Made with Verdicchio, this brings tree and some tropical fruit notes along with a lovely 'orangey' citrus character. From the north of Italy. This sits nicely on the cafe table as a pretty girl rides off on a Vespa.
Harald Thiel, proprietor, and Jay Johnson, winemaker, bring you one of Ontario's best Sauv Blancs. Expect elegance, green and tree fruit character, a bit of flint - ripe but understated. Just a classy wine, from a classy couple of guys. (Well, maybe not Harald...)
"Petit Manseng plus seven other grapes – all sourced from the vineyards of a Corbières family estate founded in 1750. Leesy, creamy cashew roundness and a raspy texture, with pear juice, spiced apple, stone fruit, and a long apricot finish." (91 -D)
100% Carricante, this is new Sicily. Almonds and pears on the nose, bright acid and a mineral undertone. "Volcanic Wine," eh Mr. Szabo? Bang on.
"Softly spiced citrus fruits on the nose, this feels well-handled with clean and pink grapefruit flavours driving the palate forward. It settles on the mid-palate, giving juice and concentration of flavour which lingers on to a long finish. 92" - Decanter
Fresh yellowfin tuna, diced, tossed with chili, cucumbers, sriracha, lime, sesame oil, soy, red onions & avocado mayo. Served with wonton crisps.
Wild white shrimp (9 pieces) tossed in lemon & tabasco with cocktail sauce.
P.E.I. mussels, cooked and chilled, then marinated in spices, herbs and other things that make it delicious! A classic here at Rodney's. Eat them on a cracker, with smoked fish or a nice addition to your cheese board.
This requires no description. We sell a lot over the bar, and we're sad we can't sell it to YOU over the bar right now.
6.5% abv. 100% Ontario heritage apples. Not a sweetie. 455ml Can
6.5% abv. Crushable dry cider.
6.5% abv. Niagara Montmorency cherry cider. Medium dry. 455 ml can.
6.5% abv. All fruit, no sugar added. Actually tastes like cherries, which is always nice in a cherry cider.
From our PQ friends at Unibroue, this is citrus peel, cardamom and cinnamon ringing in at 5% abv.
Unibroue is a brewery that should be sought out and consumed. Sure, some of their beers make you blind or insane (Fin du Monde ruined many Montreal nights), but Blanche sits in a very happy place. As does Fin du Monde, just a lot stronger lol.
4.5% ABV This pale ale features a bold tropical fruit aroma, a result of being jam-packed with juicy Citra and El Dorado hops. The soft but assertive bitterness is balanced by a healthy dose of flaked oats and wheat in the grain bill.
4.5% ABV Geary Ave (home of Blood Brothers) is on fire right now. A good place to buy a home, if you're leaning toward permanent and total home-ownership poverty.
A good, tasty lager with some character. 4.8% abv. We sell a lot of it when our taps are open.
The water North of the city is nice and soft. That's why there's so many breweries doing good work up there.
5.3 % abv. Bright, elegant, light, with a touch of spice and floral character. It is refermented in the can for high performance bubble and matured for 1 - 2 months in can before release. This beer is extremely park, picnic and patio-friendly.
5.3 % abv. We don't want to stress the 'park-friendly' thing too much, but we do attest to it. We've got discrete brown paper bags if you need them...
4.3% abv. Crafted to be lower in alcohol, but still deliver a big hoppy style. Aromas of pine, grapefruit with tropical fruit and malt; initial malty sweetness is followed by a balanced hoppy bitterness and notes of grapefruit, spice and fruit.
4.3% abv. Surprising to see how sessionable this beer really is, isn't it? a 4 pack would go down a treat over a couple of hours of online socializing.
Ale base (84%), co-fermented with Niagara Riesling (8%) and Gewurtz (8%). Wildflowers, lemons, oranges. Dry-hopped with Citra and Vic Secret. Just fresh and lovely.
7% ABV Brewed with cocoa husk and a complex combination of roasted malts, this bold stout is rich and full bodied with layers of chocolate and espresso.
7% ABV So nice to drink dark beer sometimes. There are only so many sours you can handle before your mouth says 'enough.' This isn't a meal replacement, but it's got nice body and texture, and goes down a treat on a cold day.

House made, beer battered onion rings.

100% Cab Franc from Chinon. It plays like a white that someone squished a strawberry in. Terrific concentration of fruit for the price. For fans of the Provencal style fer sure.
Pink from the Southern Rhone. 50% Cinsault, 40% Grenache and 10% Syrah, this is very crushable. Sunshine red fruit and nectarines with a great southern France herbal note playing in (rosemary and thyme). Imagine it's not winter...
Niagara - Plum, spice, black cherry, a bit of cola and nice concentration at the price. 20% new oak is nicely integrated, for a bit of structure. If you get a chance to go to the Neudorf's wine release party, you should go.
100% Syrah. Is '19 the best vintage of this wine so far. Some say yes. Ripe plum, cracked pepper and cassis, but this has a freshness that the hot S. Rhone doesn't always find. A wine for the Oyster? No. But great value and delicious? Yes.
McLaren Vale, Oz. 40% whole-bunch extraction brings out some Grenache spiciness, and the carbonic maceration pumps up the juiciness factor. Red fruit, cedar and black tea.
Beaujolais is hot. Hot! Stephane farms biodynamically, if you care, and this wine shows juicy dark red fruit, spices, fine tannins and great concentration. Amazing.
60% Nero D'Avola, 40% Frappato. Sicily. Red fruit, dried herbs, soft tannins. Like in the Godfather, when Michael meets Appolonia. How's that for a tasting note!
