Mill St. Spring Pack Review

As some of my more regular readers may know, I am a passionate fan of Mill St. Brewery in Toronto, Ontario. Unfortunately, they were recently purchased by Labatt Breweries, which I hold significantly less enthusiasm for. It has yet to be seen whether or not this purchase will have serious ramifications on the quality and…

Royal City Brewery: I Pledge My Allegiance

I think I have finally found it, and I am incredibly excited. I have been looking for some time for a local brewery that I can become a regular at-buying from their rotating tap, sampling their new beers, and keeping my fridge stocked.

Beer Night#1

Hello all, I know-it’s been some time since I have articulated a single blog post to share with you all. One of the most ironic aspects of life is often life gets in the way of those activities that you do to make life less stressful. But here I am, the prodigal son, returning to…
