The TekSavvy Tap Series with Trail’s End Brewing Co.

Newbrews-Brewer_Trailsend

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 Trail’s End Brewing Co:

What made you want to become a brewer? Tell your story!

We’ve always been in love with the craft brewing culture. The support between breweries, the commitment to community, and the sheer passion behind those who love to make beer! We wanted to build a brewery so that we can foster and advocate for creative local culture, as well as continue the rich brewing heritage of our area… While we’re at it, we want to make beer we can be proud of.

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 bringing two of our beers with us to TFOB with emphasis on drinkability. First, we’ll have our Grand Valley Pilsner, which was designed to have a robust, malt forward profile with a clean finish. It’s an über crushable beer that celebrates the German style, while adhering to the tradition of using only local ingredients. The second beer is a cousin to the pilsner; the Iron Horse Schwarz Lager. The core of this beer is in the pilsner family, but some late addition black malt, gives it a dry cocoa flavour. We call this brew our gateway dark lager as its smooth, crisp finish gives the traditional ‘lager’ drinker something familiar. 1% of each sale of these beers supports trail maintenance and development along the Grand River trail network.

What are you most excited about participating at TFOB 2018?

LUDA! Sorry, that was Jon. WE are most looking forward to meeting the beer fans in GTA as this is our first large event outside of our Southwestern Ontario community. We love getting feedback and seeing TO’s reactions to our beer directly. When you put so much work into creating something, it’s gratifying to see the community enjoying it.

Where can people find more information about your brewery, other brews you are making, etc?

Follow us as we build our brewery at www.trailsendbrewing.ca or on our Facebook & Instagram at: @trailsendbrew

Make sure you check out the New Brews presented by TekSavvy on-site at TFOB 2018. There will be 12 brewers showcasing the fruits of their labour, along with free WiFi for beer lovers to share their discoveries.  We will feature each brewer leading up to TFOB 2018. And yes, the New Brews presented by TekSavvy pavilion will be on-site for all four days of TFOB.

The TekSavvy Tap Series with Glutenberg Craft Brewery

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 Blonde

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 IPA

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.

What are you most excited about participating at TFOB 2018?

We are very excited about meeting beer enthusiasts from around the world and having them try our delicious 100% Gluten free beers!

Where can people find more information about your brewery, other brews you are making, etc?

The TekSavvy Tap Series with OverHop

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 OverHop:

What made you want to become a brewer? Tell your story!

We started as homebrewers and we were amazed by everything related to the process of making beer. We added that to our business background and OverHop was born. We are gypsy brewers, the only ones producing locally in Quebec, Ontario and Rio de Janeiro. We’re passionate about the craft beer revolution and everything that is related to it!

What kind of beer(s) will you be bringing to TFOB 2018? If you have tasting notes that you could share with fans, it will help paint a picture of what they can expect?

We are bringing our flagships Hazy and OneLove. Both of them are incredibly fresh and bring delicious tropical notes:

Hazy is a New England IPA with 6,5 ABV and 50 IBU. It pours a super juicy cloudy gold. It has notes of passion fruit, pineapple, star fruit and grapefruit on the nose. Very smooth on the sip with a bitterness of grapefruit and orange zest, and a slight mango juiciness.

OneLove is a Double IPA with 9%ABV and 90 IBU. It pours a deep copper color with a thick white head. It has notes of pine, orange and grapefruit on the nose that matches to the taste. On the sip, these notes are perfectly combined with the toasted malt body.

What are you most excited about participating at TFOB 2018?

We’re very excited for this festival being in the heart of the city we live and love and also because of the cool attractions and great vibe it always has! We used to be customers, now we’re featuring our brewery to the public. What an honor!

The TekSavvy Tap Series with Fenelon Falls Brewing Co.

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 Fenelon Falls Brewing Co:

What made you want to become a brewer? Tell your story!

Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. was founded by my wife and I. I immigrated to Canada in the 1970s, arriving in Fenelon Falls not knowing a soul, a word of English, or really having a place that felt like home. That didn’t last long. The town welcomed my family unequivocally in every way.

Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. is an expression of all of that—accepting opportunities, and applying the effort necessary to put a bit of good into the world. It’s a way of saying thanks, playing part in the life of the community, and paying forward the tradition of hospitality that has meant so much to us.

Our brewery offers handcrafted premium beer made in small batches. Our brewing philosophy is to keep our ingredients simple and our processes to a minimum to make beer that allows the flavours and aromas to shine through. Of course, all our beer is brewed with no additives and no preservatives. The way it should be.

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? 

Vienna Lager

  • Traditional Vienna and Munich malts combine to deliver a flavourful, medium body with gentle hop notes and a refreshingly distinctive finish

Red Ale

  • A supremely approachable deep red ale combining sweet caramel notes with citrus aromas for a refreshingly smooth, clean finish

What are you most excited about participating at TFOB 2018?

Fenelon Falls is known as the jewel of the Kawarthas, and we’re extremely excited to showcase what Fenelon has to offer. We’ll be operational in September and invite you to drop by, sample flavours exclusively available in our taproom and see where the beer is made. Come by boat, car, bus, bike, or foot. The town is always here to welcome you!

Where can people find more information about your brewery, other brews you are making, etc?
