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 NULA Salt by Burdock at King & DufferinMildly tart, a bit overshadowed by the dry hop but not overwhelmingly. Salt is subtle but adds a nice minerality to the finish.
- Greg C. is drinking an Insetto by Stillwater Artisanal at King & DufferinGorgeous colour. And gorgeous flavour as well. Subtle plum integrates well with the elegant sour base beer. Beautifully balanced.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hawaii Five Eh! by Brickworks Ciderhouse at King & DufferinNot my usual sort of thing, but I quite liked this. Apple flavour has a nice tart-sweet balance, pineapple is very natural & summery.
- Greg C. is drinking an Apricot + Citra Dry-Hopped Sour by Rouge River Brewing CompanySplit at tasting. Seems muddled at first, but opens up really nicely, with lovely balance of apricot, sweet orange & sour lemon.
- Greg C. is drinking a Barrel of Cherries by Spindrift Brewing CompanyShared at tasting. Quite a hit of sour cherry up front. Red wine and chocolate. Bit of oak. One complaint: it’s kinda thin. But tastes nice.
