Zesty Risotto Meets Quebec’s Collaborative Saison from Ca Va Brasser!

I’m well aware that my last beer and food article involved risotto, but I just like making it so much that I’m going to have to bore you again with another one. In my defense, the previous review was mostly written several months ago and I just posted last week, because I’m just that slow. […]

Pit Caribou’s Oxymor Wheat Wine does Something Different

Pit Caribou is a brewery out of Gaspe. I haven’t had too many of their offerings, but the ones I have had were quite good. Their Oxymor series seems to be beers that they are trying out, or at least beers that are a bit off the Beaten path. I couldn’t find too much information online about […]
