Correction: Hi guys, I’m updating this as I had the incorrect list of brewers attending the festival. I apologize for the oversight. I’ve amended this entry to reflect the correct beer list. So sorry! 

It’s April and April means the beer festival season BEGINS.

I’m headed to The Brooklyn’s annual Kingston Craft Beer Festival on the 8th and oh man, is it gonna be fun. Yes, it is sold out, but there might be tickets at the door. This week’s episode talks about what new breweries I’m looking forward to, beer styles I prefer, and why I wish I knew more about cider.

I promise in the episode that I would give you with a list of participating breweries (complete with links!). If you are a fan of any of them, let me know which ones. I want to know about some of the new-to-me ones I’ve mention.

Without further ado:

Whew! A lot breweries, sure, but most of all, a lot of noteworthy breweries. This list is subject to change, because beer festivals can be in flux. As a result, check online before heading over to avoid disappointment.

Find the show on iTunes and Stitcher. Connect with me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and on Untappd. Furthermore, if you see me at this festival, come say hi, and take a picture with me for the Instagram feed, yes? I will see you there!

‘Gan’ You Feel the Heat? – Episode 4

Honestly, I can never stop saying that the best part of this gig is meeting amazing ladies. It really is!

This episode I had the pleasure of meeting Kristina Miller whose job title for Gananoque Brewing Company is “Gettin’ Shit Done.” We sat outside on a very hot day, drank a beer, and talked about her role at the brewery, why craft beer is the bomb, and hey, there really is a beer for everyone!

If you’re keen to take a trip to the Thousand Islands in Ontario, you should do yourself a favour and head on over to the brewery. It’s a gorgeously repurposed 1860 carriage house that now makes some of the finest beer in Southeastern Ontario. What are you waiting for?

The music for the show is by Megan Hamilton. You can (and totes should) purchase her album, 40 Warm Streams to Lead Your Wings, on the iTunes. While you’re buying her album, give us a review, won’t you? And if you know people that might like what this podcast does, recommend it, please?
