BARRIE, ON – Following quickly on recently announced funding packages for several other breweries in the province, Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has become the latest recipient of financial support from the Government of Ontario.
At a press event held today at the Barrie brewery, MPP Ann Hoggarth announced that the province’s Rural Economic Development (RED) program is granting $304,625 to Flying Monkeys to assist with expansion projects.
Taken in combination with the previous announcements, this month has seen the Government invest more than $1,130,000 from three different funding programs into five Ontario craft breweries.
- 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.
