Well folks, if you haven't had an opportunity to check out the Brewery Market, this will be your last chance this year. My friend and fellow OBC member Nick wrote a review of the last Brewery Market, which is a great primer to get excited for this one. Here's the rest of the details. I'll be there, will you?
It is a great time to be a Beer Lover in Ottawa!!
From August 9 to 17, 2013, National Capital Craft Beer Week will be featuring 9 days of craft beer events across the region. These events will focus on celebrating the capital region's rich brewing heritage and current craft beer offerings. From Beer and Food pairing dinners to Brewmasters' receptions, National Capital Craft Beer Week will offer tons of opportunities to learn about, sample, appreciate, and enjoy craft beer!
The final weekend features a two-day outdoor craft beer and culinary festival, showcasing the best craft breweries and eateries the region and the province has to offer!
The kind folks over at CTV Ottawa Morning Live were nice enough to invite us on for a cooking with beer segment this week. Here's the link to the youtube video!
Hogsback Brewing introduces Alohog Coconut Pale Ale!
Alohog Coconut Pale Ale is spectacular summer beer infused with a hint of toasted coconut… just perfect to enjoy on a hot day. The beer pours a clear golden colour, with the aroma first hinting of the delicious coconut within along with sweet pale malt, citrus and some piney hops. The taste is malty then citrusy then a lovely coconut flavour finishes the beer off ending mildly dry and slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light to medium body and smoothly sweet with medium carbonation. Overall this beer is balanced, smooth and exceptional for summer quaffing.
A luau-themed launch party for Alohog will take place on Saturday June 29th at 3:00 PM on the patio of Hooley’s Pub (292 Elgin Street, Ottawa). The event will also feature a pig roast, with a dinner & pint special available starting at 5:00 PM.
Hope to see you there, Cheers!
Members of the OBC will be participating in this fun and exciting challenge from May 30th to July 14th. Check it out, it promises to be a helluva good time!
I already put a post about this... but hey, it's sort of an event... a month-long event, but still an event, so maybe it belongs here instead. Several of us are participating in Movember, and we've joined forces with a local blogger and friend, Canadian Dad. Look for us under Canadian Dad 2.012!
