Broadhead’s Grindstone Amber Ale

While I was in Ottawa, I tried to find some local beer at the closest LCBO and only found this amber ale from Broadhead. I enjoyed the flavour that hit in just the right places. There was a tinge of sweetness and a drinkable malt. Bold without being too bold. Advertisements beerbroadheaddrinks

Pilot Coffee: Heritage

In Toronto, I’m blessed with a lot of local indie coffee shops that sell local brews. I picked up this Heritage blend by Pilot Coffee Roasters. I loved this blend. It requires no sugar (in fact I feel like sugar ruins it!) and there is a lovely tone of swiss chocolate and toffee when you…

Muskoka Roastery: Howling Wolf

Savanna Dry 

I recently picked up some Savanna Dry Cider from the LCBO. I love ciders and I always get excited when there are ones I haven’t seen in stock. Made in Belgium, the Dry cider is not sweet, it is appropriately tart and crisp. It is 5% alcohol, so not too strong and something refreshing to…
