TGIF – What Barrie is Drinking In Isolation

We asked a cross section of Barrie’s arts and culture scene to let us in on their quarantine bevy selections

 

TGIF – What Barrie is Drinking In Isolation

 

RICHARD VARTY, TIFT & HEATHER DENNIS, ACTRESS

“We’ve been enjoying a little bit of everything from our local breweries. Some of our favorites are Redline’s Rainbow in the Dark Rye IPA, Flying Monkey’s Sparklepuff Triple IPA, and Barnstormer’s 400 Blonde Ale.”

. Remember to shop local and support our wonderful small businesses. We love @barnstormerbeer and certainly miss our saturday nights there enjoying a large "crash and burn pizza." @barnstormerbeer is stocking their shelves with our favourite 400 Blonde Ale and so many other great choices. Available for pick up and delivery! . . @thecanuckatgrandview 📸 @barnstormerbeer 👍 . . . . . #supportlocal #supportlocalbusiness #craftbeer #barnstormerbeer #beer #local #business #400paleale #pizza #delivery #online #support #repost #weekend #beers #draught #ale #foodie #weekenddelivery #Restaurant #shoplocal #friends #ubereats #thistooshallpass #us #together #barrie #ontario #simcoecounty

MARC TRINIDAD, COMEDIAN

“I drink Carib because it’s clean crisp golden lager reminds me of my twin island home country of Trinidad & Tobago. And after 7 of them, it makes me forget I’m quarantined with my mother-in-law”

 

JEFF DUMAIS, BIGFOOT’S HAND

“My everyday go to beer is Detour, an ipa from Muskoka breweries, and I’ve been enjoying their new tread lightly lager as well. I’ll usually have a couple cans of Flying Monkeys Hoptical illusion on hand as well.”

 

BRANDON DAVENPORT, THE NOOLANDS

“For non alcoholic selections, my other reccomendation is Tetley Peach Ginger & Dandelion tea. Good price and tasty”

But the beer I would recommend would be Barnstormers 400 blonde ale. I enjoy IPAs and other craft brews but there is NOTHING like a clean easy drinking local brew. Da best 🙏

 

JOHN ARRUDA, BARRIE FILM FESTIVAL

“I’m currently on the Accolade Weightloss for Men program, (so far down 46 lbs) my drink of choice is vodka and water with a 0 calorie flavour squirt like Iced Tea or Tang”

 

JOSHUA LUCAS, THE MYSTICS

“We’ve been ordering cider, wine and sangria from Heritage Estate in an attempt to support local. Mix in the occasional LCBO delivery service for spice rum on Friday nights and you’ve got yourself a good time.”

 

IAIN MOGGACH, TBTB

“I have been drinking a lot of Cusumano Syrah. It is a Sicilian red wine. I went to Sicily last year and it was an amazing experience and this wine is a great way to keep the memory of that trip alive.”

 

FRASER MOORE, CINEMA SMACKDOWN PODCAST 

“Flying Monkey’s Sparklepuff Triple IPA mixed with 12 Minutes To Destiny. It’s like a “Black &Tan” for craft beer hipsters.”
