An article by Noah Forrest The Toronto brewing scene is blowing up more and more every year. Bellwoods is quickly becoming one of the best in the country, while countless other Toronto-based breweries produce some exceptional beers.

Brasserie Bois Blanc – Making Hudson Hoppier

An article by Noah Forrest When entering Brasserie Bois Blanc, it feels warm, inviting, and best of all, like home.

Beerism does Brasserie Une Bière Deux Coups: Old Friends With New Beers

I haven’t always been obsessed with beer.  Or rather, I should say that I haven’t always been obsessed with GOOD beer. I say this because one could argue that I was pretty obsessed with beer in my 20’s, given that I drank obscene amounts of it every weekend (and many weeknights too). However, it would […]

Great Lakes Brewery (GLB) – AKA Magical Ontarian Hop Wizards

American IPA is a beer style that is increasingly popular and widely discussed (although arguably less so in recent years with the rise of other styles). For the most part, the term is used to describe “West Coast” styled IPA. The difference between West Coast and East Coast IPA is something that’s often debated, but […]
