Our weekly look at the latest in beer news take us to Hamilton, Bruges, Houston and right here in Toronto. We googled, we searched, we created and these are the top stories for the week…
We’ve been told that some guys are hard to buy for, so we conjured up the Perfectly Paired Package. It’s like getting a pair of GOTSTYLE socks and a pair of Yves Martin boxer briefs for free when you purchase a pair of TFOB Saturday tickets. LEARN MORE about this package HERE. Please note, we will donate $10 from every package purchased to Prostate Cancer Canada. This is a win/win/win/win. Thanks to the fine folks at GOTSTYLE and Prostate Cancer Canada for making this happen.
So Arty: Let’s face it. Collective Arts Brewing in Hamilton are crushing it. A solid line-up of brews like Rhyme & Reason, Ransack The Universe, Stranger Than Fiction and a killer idea to incorporate art into their look and feel. Canadian and International artists get their art featured on the label. It’s like a global art gallery in your hand, one beer at a time. We love everything about it. Read more in THIS CBC article.
In Bruges: Beer literally flows through the streets of Bruges. This destination is on on our bucket list. It sounds dreamy, but Belgian beer can be a minefield for the uninitiated, so it’s worth learning how to tell your Tripel from your Kwak before you order a pint of something 14% ABV. Check out this piece from The Independent on how to spend a beer-fueled two days In Bruges.
Superb Owl Beer Pairings: Yes, the Superb Owl is coming up (Feb 6 at 6:30pm). It’s Football’s biggest game with Atlanta facing New England. We always like to look at the other battle; the battle of beer. Which region/city brews better beer? Boston vs Atlanta. Methinks it doesn’t seem like too difficult of a choice. The other big part of Superb Owl Sunday are the snacks. HERE’s a handy list of which beer pairs with which snack courtesy of VinePair.
There you have it. Our round up of the latest beer news. Cheers. Looking forward to seeing everyone on May 20-21 for Toronto’s Festival of Beer Spring Sessions and on July 28-30 for the Summer Edition of TFOB.
