OBK Toy Soldier Stout (5.25 US Gal) with Toasted Oak Chips & Vanilla Beans
OBK Toy Soldier Stout not only provides you with a great beer making kit, the entire sale price is donated to our community.

What is a Toy Soldier? To many, it is a small green man in a child's toy box. To us and our community it is much more.

Toy Soldier is the name of Ontario Beer Kegs campaign to raise funds for our community.

While our Toy Soldier Stout recipe kits are meant for adults only, the sale of each and every one of them directly benefits the children and their families in our community. Once again our family and staff are pleased to announce that the entire purchase price from every Toy Soldier beer recipe kit will be used to help those have a merrier Christmas.

Our Toy Soldier campaign runs throughout the year with no official start or end date. So... all purchases of our Toy Soldier stout recipe kits bought during the year (not just during special promotions) is tallied up on Dec. 1st for disbursement. If you have been following our campaign you will notice that the money is used not just at Christmas, but for Easter hampers too. Additional food is purchased during the year to help keep the freezers and coolers stocked which in turn helps to fill empty bellies.

(prior year updates below)

Toy Soldier Stout is a warm and satisfying hearty drink with just enough spice to know it is different. Although offered year round, this kit really shines at Christmas when the magic of it is shared with others.

For those who would like to participate (thank you) without buying the kit, please consider purchasing a Gift Certificate at the link below. Simply put "Toy Soldier" in one of the fields.
