The lazy days of summer will soon be upon us, commanding us to seek out patios and barbecues.

Of course, it’s a little tricky in isolation…but we can make do on our home terraces.

We’ll spend the next few weeks previewing some of the tastiest summer beverages from Barrie’s best brewers.

TGIF: Summer Preview (Part 3)

This week why don’t you try….



Admit it! At least once or twice in your life, you’ve at least entertained the notion of moving to California (probably after scraping ice off your car for the 748th time in mid-January).

While that particular goal might be somewhat outlandish, you can bring the palm tree state a little closer with the proper beverage.

Barnstormer has just the ticket with this Hops infused IPA. Flight Delay pours a light golden brown with plenty of foamy head that recedes nicely, and it’s first impression only gets better when the hopsy/citrusy aromas hit.

It presents a vibrant bitter taste, but it doesn’t over-power or dominate too much of the pallet. We would give it a medium in terms of body, with about the same in carbonation levels, leaving you with a moderately crisp bite.

And at 6.5 Abv, it’s a good one to stick with for most of your sitting.
