Phew! Just got back from my guest appearance on Rogers Daytime Toronto! That 8 minutes went by too fast, but I was able to showcase some amazing beers and talk a little about myself in the process. And host Val Cole was wonderful, professional and helped me, who has never been on television before, get through it all in one piece.
And now I’m worried that I left my bottle opener back at the station. Hrm.
So if you’ve found your way here because you watched the show, hello! Feel free to browse around!
Now a little note on the beers that I presented there:
Augusta Ale by Kensington Brewing Co. is not available in LCBO stores…YET. But your best bet is to give them a try at places like The Burger Bar at 319 Augusta Avenue (Where the brewery is based out of) and Thirsty & Miserable at 197 Baldwin Street. Both are in Kensington Market.
Schneider Weisse, the delicious Bavarian wheat beer with lovely smells of Bananas and cloves is available at the LCBO and is priced at $2.75 a bottle!
Legendary Muskoka Spring Oddity by the Muskoka Brewery, the DELICIOUS beer (that Val loved) with hints of Orange Peel, Heather Tips, Juniper Berries and Beglian Candi Sugar, comes in a large wine bottle and is sold at the LCBO for $9.95. And while you’re at it, try their other beers. I suggest the Mad Tom IPA!
Panil Barriquee Sour Ale from Italy also comes in a large bottle and is a tad pricey at $14.05 (but very much worth it for special occasions). Sadly, the product has been discontinued, so RUN don’t walk to the LCBO to see if you can grab one. I found quite a few at the Summerhill branch.
And that’s it! If I’m allowed back on you can bet that I’ll have plenty more to talk about and if not, well, I still have this site! Which turned one year-old last month! *sniff* so proud…
