The best thing about beer.......

The best thing about beer is not the taste, the aroma, or the appearance. Although those things are incredibly important to the integrity of a beer, they are mostly overlooked by something else way more important. People…the ones who drive the Beer Industry are what really make what it is today.  Continue »

Let's talk Scotch

Alright, let’s talk Scotch. First thing you’ll need to know is I am and have always been a lover of whisky. My weakness in particular is Scotch. Though I believe the disease to be genetic, passed to me by my father, there are other theories to how this sickness can be contracted. I once heard a man say, “You do what you want to me, as long as the apology includes a bottle of single malt.” Though not sure I completely agree, I thought it was a good demonstration of the cult like appreciation of Scotch whisky. I remember my first dram fondly, as it was the moment I first found the new love of my life.  Continue »

Dana's Craft Beer Blog - Steam Whistle Pilsner

My grandpa always told me if you just do one thing then do it really well. As I grew up I thought only I had this special pep talk but it turns out we all got this talk. No one seemed to take it more to heart then the good folks at Steam Whistle Brewing. Lets make one beer but make it the best beer in the world, and that's what they did. Steam Whistle Premium Pilsner is a proud Canadian craft beer that has been taking the nation by storm. Cut to true story! I gave it to my uncle (a hater of anything in a green bottle) and is now on team, I won't print the swearing words he said when he saw the bottle and thought it would taste like tar mud beer for fancy city people or then the new swearing to describe the great taste! If Uncle Wynn likes it then it will win over any one. Just to add to the coolness of this brand they have a fleet of amazing rides include the Retro Electro http://www.steamwhistle.ca/retroelectro/ A vintage hot rod driven by 100% green energy, you may have seen it around here in Vancouver, designed by Steam Whistle Mike, a legendary dude around town. So to wrap it a up a crisp clean european craft done here in Canada by people who care for people who like to have fun and drink refreshing beer.  Continue »
