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 Passionfruit Milkshark by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinOne of the best in the series so far. The tart passionfruit cuts the lactose sweetness, and the hops are well integrated.
- Greg C. is drinking a Rhizome: Amarillo/Simcoe by Folly Brewpub at King & DufferinThe most Saison-like version of Rhizome that I can recall, and that’s good! Tropical hop notes & peppery yeast mesh really well.
- Greg C. is drinking an Equilibrium ESB by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & Dufferin
- Greg C. is drinking an Ontario Wet Hop Pale Ale (2017) by Nickel Brook Brewing Co. at King & DufferinEnjoyed this more than the previous can. Flavour seems fuller and less reined in. Still a bit flat in the finish, but enjoyable all in all.
- Greg C. is drinking a Bourbonic Plague by Cascade Brewing Company (USA) at Cask Days 2017Last beer at Cask Days 2017. Remarkably complex, sweet and strong and malty and sour and vinous and woody and just great.
