Canada Day Beer Guide

Like all events in 2020 Canada Day will look a little different this year--hello virtual fireworks! But while this year’s celebration might not be as big and busy as previous years, that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy a good socially distanced backyard BBQ and good beers (with a small group of friends). So, if you’re looking for a perfectly patriotic pint to celebrate today, we’ve got you, eh!

Drinkin' For a Cause: Pride Edition

Pride is looking a little different this year, but however you are marking the occasion, we hope you’re taking the time to celebrate the visibility, accomplishments and joy of the LGBTQ+ community! Looking at our own corner of the world (aka the craft beer community) we wanted to shout out a couple special brews that are not only a tasty toast to Pride month, but are donating money to organizations doing important work for LGBTQ+ folx in our communities and around the world.

'Baby' Beer: Confessions of a Preggers Craft Beer Gal

Well, I’m about off to sail off to Babyland for a while (don’t worry, I’ll be around MUAH-HA-HA). After 8 years or so hustlin’ in the beer industry, this is kind of my first real break. Which is kind of comical (yes I give you permission to roll your eyes at me!) because caring for a newborn is definitely NOT a break. But I’m taking mat leave from Henderson Brewery which has kiiiiinda come at a perfect time as beer sales are very bizarre right now, ya know, being in a global pandemic and all.

Community is everything. At the end of the day, this is what it's always been about. When COVID-19 hit we were all affected. For many folks in the hospitality and brewing industries, and the small businesses they work for, COVID-19 has been a tough pill to swallow. But in times of hardship it is said to look for the helpers. Enter Other Half Brewing and the All Together project. #AllTogetherBeer

Navigating the New Normal

The state of bars, pubs & restaurants is in a very precarious situation right now. Bar owners across the province were forced to close their establishments mid-March (rightfully so, due to Co-VID 19) and try to navigate what comes next. These small businesses are people’s passions, their livelihoods and create the vibrant, dynamic city of neighbourhoods we love so much about Toronto.

Craft Beer Rockstars at the LCBO - Part 2

It’s really been interesting to check in with these folks. I love their passion and enthusiasm for craft beer! Their ideas are really smart and their advice for breweries is really on point. Because I got VERY excited to have their undivided attention, I hit them with a whopping TEN questions and soon realized that would make for one very long Q&A. SO, this is part II.
