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.

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

Saulter Street Brewery was built for those whose lives move a little too fast. The brewery is a mini escape from the city within it. Our brewing process fuses traditional ingredients in unconventional combinations underlined by a great deal of patience, creating something that’s meaningful to us, and hopefully to you too. For us, this brewery was created with a lot of heart and passion for beer in the hopes to be a vehicle for meaningful moments, connections, and conversations.

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? 

Riverside Pilsner: 4.7% and 25 IBU

  • Our flagship Czech-style Pilsner is made from locally sourced small batch malts and Saaz hops to give it a spicy bite. Smooth and crisp, this copper-coloured, medium-bodied beer has been aged for twenty-eight days

Golden Ale: 5.5% and 60 IBU

  • A traditional English Style Ale using a new English hop, Olicana, which is made to resemble tropical flavoured hops from Australia and the Pacific Northwest. This golden coloured ale is crisp with bitter & earthy notes. Aroma of citrus zest, dried mango and apricot.

What are you most excited about participating at TFOB 2018?

We cannot wait to pour our Pilsner and Golden Pale Ale at TFOB 2018! Other than the sunshine and live music, we are excited to introduce out beer and our brewery to all of Toronto! See you soon
