TGIF: Summer Suds Preview (Part 1)


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.

First up….



Peel Out is an ideal pick for your house bar. The initial pour is a warm, straw-gold, with an inviting aroma. A lacey thick fingered foam and a blend of tropical tastes (mainly citrus and mango) gives way to a firm bitterness.

Hints of pine, pineapple and malts are present throughout, and there is a warming character to the whole drink. It lets you know that there is a high ABV, but without it overpowering your experience.

It’s a balanced (but strong) beer with an overall firm body and medium carbonation. Best paired with something from the beef side of the menu to absorb some of that 8.8% ABV.
