A few local beer articles – and one not-so-local one that may still be of interest to Ontario beer drinkers – have appeared in print and online in the last little while:

  • In his weekly Toronto Star beer column, Jon Filson offers up a of mini-profile of Stratford Brewing. The article mentions that their previously draught-only Pilsner is now available at select LCBO outlets.
  • The beers in the LCBO summer release get reviewed by Metro‘s Aonghus Kealy in his weekly Suds column, and by your friendly neighbourhood Bar Towel news editor Greg Clow in his latest article for local food & drink website Gremolata. The latter is the first in a two-part series on fruit beers, with next week’s second part to focus on the fruit beers that are available in Ontario on a year-round basis.
  • The British Columbia edition of The Globe & Mail recently published an article on the lack of U.S. microbrews in B.C. liquor stores. This is an interesting parallel to our situation in Ontario, where the only micro from south of the border that is available via the LCBO on a regular basis is Anchor Liberty Ale.
