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 Racing the Sunset by Eastbound Brewing Co. at King & DufferinWell-made witbier that hits the right aroma & flavour notes for the style, with perhaps a touch more citrus than usual, but no complaints.
- Greg C. is drinking a Serendipitous Sour by People's Pint Brewing Company at King & DufferinGood kettle sour flavour, nice level of dry hopping, would just prefer more crispness and brightness in the body.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dunbar's Dream by Moon Dog Craft Brewery at Liquid Art Festival 2018An odd pairing of flavors, yet it works! Passionfruit brings out the fruitiness in the coffee. Smooth for its strength.
- Greg C. is drinking a Tomorrows by MERIT Brewing at Liquid Art Festival 2018Figured I should have at least one hometown beer at the fest. Really nice integration of tea into a just-sweet-enough Tripel.
- Greg C. is drinking a Ko Lanta by Dageraad Brewing at Liquid Art Festival 2018Nice Belgian blonde with a good hit of lime leaf and backnote of galangal. Unique flavours well integrated.
