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 Saulter Street Brewery:
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.
