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 Space Invader by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at The GarrisonLate check-in from the other night. Great beer as always. Amused when the wrapper peeled off & it was a Radler can underneath.
- Greg C. is drinking a Pilsner by Mill Street Brewery at Mill St. Brew PubPerfectly acceptable Pils. Front end sweetness lingers a bit too long, but hops eventually cut through for a good herbal finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Wizard Wolf (Mosaic) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinMostly wipes the memory of the awful Simcoe/Mosaic version. Less hazy, more carbonation, and better balance. This is more like it.
- Greg C. is drinking a Half Way IPA - Across the Nation by Central City Brewers + Distillers at King & DufferinLacks the hazy appearance & lemony tang usually found in the style, but the wheat adds some lightness to this balanced old school IPA.
