Today’s interview is with Christina Coady, one of the brewers at Folly Brewpub in Toronto. Folly specializes in saisons and farmhouse ales, but truly, there is enough variety to please any beer drinker. Pair their Dovercourt Pale Ale with something savoury from their menu and you’re all set! Christina is generous with her time and I thank her for it.

Crystal and Tara Luxmore, aka the Beer Sisters, do a live tasting every Wednesday on their Facebook and Instagram Live feeds. Yours truly was the guest this past Wednesday. Watch the video on the Harpy Hour Facebook page! It is a lot of fun to do events like these.

Call the Harpy Hour Hotline: 1-833-85-HARPY (1-833-854-2779). What is your gateway craft beer for newbies? All calls air on Monday mini-episodes; the number is toll-free in the US and Canada.

Finally, find the podcast on Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. Rating, reviewing, and recommending does wonders. I thank you in advance. Say hello on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Untappd! I will see you on Monday! Cheers!

Episode 21 – The Beer Sisters!

Hello there!

Well, as of last week, we’ve said goodbye to a few lovely breweries of the American South, and we return to highlighting the best and coolest of the Ontario craft beer scene. This week’s interview is with Crystal and Tara Luxmore, the Beer Sisters. Crystal is a Certified Cicerone whose beer musings can be found in outlets ranging from Toronto Life to the Globe and Mail. Her sister, Tara, is a Prud’homme Beer Sommelier as well as a professional cider judge. Together, they are a formidable powerhouse of beer knowledge! I was lucky enough to chat with them not too long ago; I hope you will enjoy it as they were both an absolute delight.

Of course, this episode and all episodes are available on iTunes and Stitcher; leaving a review and rating on either site helps me and the show grow, so thank you in advance! Seeing as how I love to chat about beer and beer-related ephemera, you can say hello via Twitter or Facebook. (You can also email me if that’s more your jam.) Sometimes I have pictures of beer on the Harpy Hour Instagram; sometimes I just like posting about our cat. I will also be posting mini-episodes about Beau’s FeBREWary throughout this month so if you subscribe, those will come straight to you!

Also, my co-producer has asked me to use the lovely Yeti mic in my home office instead of the digital portable mic so as to make sure the sound quality is excellent for your kind ears. So very sorry about the sound quality of the past two mini-episodes! As always, thank you thank you thank you for listening!

See ya next Monday!
