Beer discovery is the most important part of Toronto’s Festival of Beer. We offer hundreds of brews to try: some you have heard of, and some maybe not. We have created the New Brews presented by TekSavvy programme to do two things: 1) Allow brewers who have never been to our event the chance to feature their product to the masses. 2) Allow beer lovers the chance to discover new brews.
As part of this programme, we will be rolling out information about each participating brewer throughout the month of June in a series we are calling the TekSavvy Tap Series, to help you get to know who our New Brews are! So, without further ado – here is Glutenberg Craft Brewery:
What made you want to become a brewer? Tell your story!
Confounders Julien Niquet and David Cayer initially came up with the idea of brewing a gluten-free beer in 2011. Julien, an entrepreneur at heart, had always dreamed of leading his own company. Diagnosed with celiac disease a decade earlier and completely appalled by what the market had to offer in terms of gluten-free beers, he and David saw a unique opportunity to fulfill an ever-growing need.
What kind of beers will you be bringing to TFOB 2018? If you have tasting notes that you could share with fans, it will paint a picture of what they can expect?
We are excited to be showcasing two styles, Glutenberg Blonde and Glutenberg IPA.
Glutenberg’s Blonde is the proud originator of the series, the pioneer of real good gluten-free beer. Airy and lemony, this thirst-quenching beer reveals floral and lightly herbal notes, making room for a dry and tasty finale.
Glutenberg’s IPA is a dream come true for craft beer fans. A true little bomb of flavours,it presents a perfect harmony between citrus aroma, hop freshness and bitterness. It guarantees a soft contact with taste buds, releasing apricot and soft caramel notes. Its exacerbated dry side makes its bouquet of flavours shine and ensures its good aromatic persistence.
