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 Handcrafted Lager by Northern Maverick Brewing at King & DufferinDidn’t care for this the first few times I had it but it seems to have improved. Good malt base, subtle hops, very clean on the palate.
- Greg C. is drinking a Barlie Brown by Northern Maverick Brewing at King & DufferinExcellent example of the style - roast malt, hint of bittersweet cocoa, toasted nuts, strong hops, dry finish. Tasty and moreish.
- Greg C. is drinking an Armed 'N Citra by Rainhard Brewing at King & DufferinIf I lived closer to Rainhard, I’d have cans if this beer in my fridge all the damn time.
- Greg C. is drinking a Target Practice (Ides of September 2017) by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinBase beer has nice complexity - notes of clove, anise, typical Belgian ale esters - and cherry is just on the good side of medicinal.
- Greg C. is drinking a Galactic Pale Ale by Granite Brewery at King & DufferinNice elements here - clear & bright body, pine & tropical fruit notes, clean on the palate - but feels a bit reined in, lacks a spark.
