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 Fresh Hop Ale by Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Undercarbonated, so body is lacking. Flavour has some nice blackcurrant notes but very tannic in finish. Not very good.
- Greg C. is drinking a Local Hoption IPA by Niagara Oast House Brewers at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Another one where experience from past years shows. Light, crisp, almost elegant in its balance. Well done!
- Greg C. is drinking a Back Forty by The Second Wedge Brewing Co. at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Can tell this isn’t the first year they’ve done this - crisp & clean pale with really nicely integrated hops. Excellent.
- Greg C. is drinking a Caledon Hills Hoppy Beaver IPA by Caledon Hills Brewing Company at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Comes across as more of a pale ale than IPA but still well made. Balanced, notes of black currant & candied citrus peel.
- Greg C. is drinking a Last Minute Is the Best Minute Pale Ale by Redline Brewhouse at Berkeley ChurchAt Fresh Hop Fest. Undercarbonated & lacking a solid malt backing, so the hops come across a bit harsh despite not being overly bitter.
