September 1st, 201604 Vendredi soir j'étais invité à la toute première édition de l'IBU, immersion brassicole unique. Je t'en parlais la semaine dernière. Alors c'était comment? C'était la première édition de cet événement et je dois dire que c'était très réussi! L'emplacement est bien choisi. Facile d'accès en auto ou en transport en commun. L'espace Read Source Article

August 28th, 201602 Cote: 8.5Parlez-moi d'une belle blonde bien sentie! Oubliez la blonde de type lager qui domine encore (malheureusement) le marché. Celle-ci est une ale bien houblonnée avec une finale qui rappelle effectivement le miel (tel qu'indiqué sur l'étiquette). C'est ce goût qui reste en bouche et qui laisse un très beau Read Source Article

August 21st, 201602 Cote: 7.5S'il y a un adjectif qui colle à cette bière, c'est bien celui de moelleux. Nous sommes dans la brune d'inspiration belge, quelque part entre la double et la quadruple (en d'autres mots, il s'agit d'une double particulièrement corsée). Le goût de caramel brûlé est indéniable et la force Read Source Article

This beer hit shelves for the Read Source Article

July 25th, 201606 An article by Noah Forrest For beer folks in Ontario, Beau's all Natural Brewing has been a household name for some time now. I remember first going to the brewery about five years ago, where the retail store was the size of a closet and they had two beers to Read Source Article

July 19th, 201609 An article by Noah Forrest The world's beer scene is in a state of hyperdrive. Quebec is no different. New breweries are popping up all the time, while the existing ones are expanding, fine-tuning their skills, and becoming far more experimental. Over the last few years, Les Trois Mousquetaires, Brasserie Read Source Article


September 6th, 201601 This perry from Double Trouble Brewing Co. is made from Ontario-grown Bosc and Bartlett apples in Stony Creek and has a faint golden yellow hue reminiscent of a light white wine as well as some wavy chill haze. Grow a Pear also smells rather vinous, with strong aromas of green Read Source Article

August 9th, 201602 Honey Ginger Shandy from Old Tomorrow Ltd. in Toronto, Ontario is a beautiful golden hue and pours with a loose and spongy white head that tends to leave small islands of lace on the glass.

The story each brewery has behind them. The fascinating thing is Read Source Article

June 10th, 201603 Queen Street 501 from The Brickworks Ciderhouse in Toronto, Ontario has a deep golden colour that more closely resembles a typical American lager than it does a commercially produced cider and retains a small collar of bubbles longer than most. This semi-sweet blend of Ontario heritage apples smells McIntosh-heavy, with Read Source Article
