Some Behind The Scenes Notes From Our Craft Beer Adventures

Counterpoint Brewing Co.

We’re back!  Strange times here in this world.  But, I’ve been doing a lot of catch up on Podcasts these past couple weeks and we’re super excited to release this episode with Counterpoint.  So, we hope ya dig it! But let’s go back to our time in Kitchener/Waterloo, shall we?  This was a busy day.  […]

Wave Maker Crafty Brewery & Distillery

Strange times out there, ladies and gents. It seems like forever ago that we stopped into Wave Maker in Cambridge, sat down with Scott and had nothing but a silly goose time. But it would feel weird to not talk a bit about what’s been going on over the past few days. As of right [...]

Bandit Brewery

This day was preeeetty surreal for me. I have been a big fan of Bandit for a long time now. So, to finally visit their spot and sit down with Stephane and Shehzad and learn a little bit more about what they’re doing and where they’re headed, was a real treat. I interacted with Juan, […]

The Second Wedge Brewing Co.

Is it still called a rough draft if I never edit, revise, or re-write the original copy?   I shoot from the hip here on these blogs, alright? Are there spelling mistakes? Yess*. Does it all flow well? No. Does it construct a story that would have you on the edge of your seat until […]

Short Finger Brewing Co.

This was one of the best days I’ve had in recent memory and I believe I set myself up for it Saturday night, actually. My friends and I all went curling (first timer – definitely going back) for my 30th Birthday. We then went back to a friends for a little shin dig, where I [...]

Steel Wheel Brewery

I want to start this by saying I know nothing about steam engines … don’t worry, this will ALL make sense. One of my best friends from high school was Diaz’s brother and we stayed with him while we were visiting our set of breweries in Hamilton and the surrounding area.  He works insane hours and […]

Grain & Grit Beer Co.

Hi Friends!  I had been soooo pumped about the potentially visiting Grain & Grit, prior to reaching out and seeing if they would have us.  Their space is filled with white and bright colours, combined with some greenery – it’s truly perfect for all y’all ‘grammers out there looking for that perfect photo.  I love […]

Concession Road Brewing Co.

I realized something the other day when I was thinking about writing up this blog for Concession Road. And what I realized is I am not good at writing. I think I have one of the most basic grasps on the English language that you can have in order to make conversations. English was my [...]

Nickel Brook Brewing Co.

We’re back! Not that anyone noticed that we were away, cause we drop these episodes every two weeks (sneaky, sneaky)…. Buttttttttt, this was the first stop in our four – day adventure out to the Hamilton area! We stopped into Burlington’s Nickel Brook on the way out, and I’ve gotta say, it was one of […]

One Time Brew Co.

Visiting One Time Brew Co. while in Thunder Bay this summer was a unique experience. They’re still yet to open, so it was cool to get in there when we did and get to talk to Robert about their plans for opening and what to expect out of them in terms of the style of […]

Dawson Trail Craft Brewery

The day we stopped into Dawson Trail was a particularly fun one. We woke up after a night of board games, and talks about a movie idea that Chad’s been brainstorming for a while. I won’t give away any spoilers, but I would be psyched if he decided to go ahead with it and make [...]

Sleeping Giant Brewing Co.

I am thrilled to release this episode with Sleeping Giant this week. When we stopped into the brewery, I remember leaving and both Chad and I feeling like we had just finished our best interview yet (Despite being hungover after a long night of karaoke at The Foundry with some friends). First of all, SGBC [...]

Eastbound Brewing Co.

Eastbound is sneaaaaky good. For me, it’s one of those places that I don’t immediately think of when someone asks me about my favourite brewery to visit in Toronto’s East Side. And then I walk in and sit down, and I’m like “oh yeah – this place is awesome”. They always have a wide variety [...]

Rouge River Brewing Company

This week we are featuring Markham’s ONLY brewery, aptly named Rouge River Brewing Company. Quick little knowledge drop for y’all: The Rouge River runs through Richmond Hill, Markham, Scarborough and Pickering before flooding into Lake Ontario and it’s a pretty sweet cut out of the suburbia that surrounds it. It’s mostly greenery mixed in with […]

Falcon Brewing Company

Caw-Caw, Caw-Caw! Ok – that’s not a Falcon Brewing Company thing – I understand that. That’s more of a Nick thing (which he stole from Horrible Bosses).  We went to Falcon a couple months back and talked to Kent Williamson, who had a wealth of knowledge related to Falcon that he shared with us while [...]

Muddy York Brewing Co.

Our Muddy York Visit We’re back! This episode was a lot of fun to complete. It was the first stop in our three day tour throughout Durham Region and the GTA, so we we’re excited to get into it. We got to Muddy York at around 10ish and they were brewing up some beer, so […]

Little Beasts Brewing Co.

Little Beasts Brewing Co. Our Little Beasts Visit You ever walk into a place expecting to meet someone and then you’re like “Hey! We’re here!”…. and they give you a look like “whaaaaaat are you doing here??” So, that’s exactly what happened when we showed up at Little Beasts! LOLL we totally caught Erin off [...]

Radical Road Brewing Co.

Radical Road Brewing Co. Our Radical Road Visit When I think of Radical Road, I immediately think of its ambience and atmosphere in the brew pub.  If you’ve ever been, you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s got this old school ‘Mobsters Carrying Tommy Guns’ vibe that I (somehow) really connect with…. To clarify, I’ve [...]

Chronicle Brewing Co.

Chronicle Brewing Co. Our Chronicle Visit At the time of writing this, I haven’t seen our final edit of the Chronicle Episode, which means I don’t really know how much y’all know. So, I’ll just give you the run down. This episode is actually the SECOND time we visited Chronicle, filmed an interview, hung out [...]

Black Lab Brewing

Black Lab Brewing Our Black Lab Brewing Visit It’s hard to believe that Black Lab Brewing’s been open for less than a year. With their spot being such a welcome addition to Leslieville, they’ve settled in quite nicely. What a sweet theme though, right? Who doesn’t love pups?! (Seriously, if you don’t, I’m confident we [...]

Town Brewery

  Town Brewery Our Town Brewery Visit Full disclosure – and I said this to Jeff when we sat down a few weeks ago – Town Brewery is one of my favourite breweries (and places) to visit with friends for a drink or two. I will root for them, and support them (aka drink their [...]

Rorschach Brewing Company

Rorschach Brewing Company Our Rorschach Brewery Visit Rorschach Brewery.  Roar – Shack. One more time: Roar (like a lion) and Shack (like the only thing you tried to avoid when playing MASH with your friends when you were a little Tyke – well, that and being sentenced to marriage with the weird kid who seemed [...]

Manantler Craft Brewing Co.

What can we say about Manantler ? Our Manantler Craft Brewing Co. Visit They’ve become a staple throughout Clarington, and their name has become somewhat synonymous throughout restaurants and bars within the area. If you’re a craft beer lover, you feel a sense of pride when you walk into a restaurant in your neighbourhood and [...]
