BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery will be doubling its capacity this weekend with the addition a four new beer tanks to the brewing facility.
Three new 90 hectolitre fermenters and one 100 hectolitre bright beer tank will be crane-lifted through the brewery’s removable roof starting at 8:00 AM on Saturday February 4th, and founder & brewer Peter Chiodo has invited Flying Monkeys fans to come down and watch the “Tank Drop”.
In a press release announcing the event, Chiodo notes that in keeping with the brewery’s efforts to support the local community, the delivery and installation of the tanks will involve a number of local businesses and tradespeople, and that the expansion will allow Flying Monkeys to “better meet the demand for their unique craft beers and continue developing new brands for the specialty beer market.”
- Greg C. is drinking a Breaking Point by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinTicks all the boxes for the style - hazy, hoppy, juicy, full & soft on the palate. Hides the 8.5% very well. Nice stuff.
- Greg C. is drinking a Candle Burner by Wellington Brewery at King & DufferinI’m usually not a fan of coffee IPAs - the combo rarely works for me - but this hits the right balance with coffee that’s fruity not roasty.
- Greg C. is drinking a The Ugly by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinDark & sweet Belgian ales aren’t usually my bag but this is a pretty good one. Notes of coffee, cocoa, dark cherry, bit of peppery yeast.
- Greg C. is drinking a Convergence w/ Strawberry, Rhubarb, Raspberry by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinStrawberry is there, raspberry and rhubarb less so. Base beer isn’t overly sour but still a nice tartness. Mellow but enjoyable.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hefeweizen by Northern Maverick Brewing at King & DufferinStill “notes of banana candy, bubblegum, hints of clove & lemon” as I wrote last time. But seems even better than before. Fantastic hefe!
