BOWMANVILLE, ON – The Toronto Star reports that one of Ontario’s smallest breweries has gotten approval from one of the world’s biggest rock bands to release a beer in their honour.
Boots Electric IPA will be released by Bowmanville’s Manantler Brewing in May to correspond with a Canadian tour by Eagles of Death Metal, one of the favourite bands of brewery co-owner and fellow musician James Gorry.
Named after one of the nicknames of EODM’s lead singer Jesse Hughes and sporting a label by designer Rachel Riordan that features a drawing of Hughes riding a tiger, Boots Electric will not only pay tribute to the group, but will also support the families of victims of the terrorist attack at the EODM show in Paris last November, with $1 from each bottle sold to be donated to EODM co-founder Josh Homme’s Sweet Stuff Foundation.

- Greg C. is drinking an Ice Cider by Spirit Tree Estate Cidery at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Lacks the complexity of top notch ice ciders, but has a nice sweet-sour green apple thing going on.
- Greg C. is drinking an Emperor Norton by Almanac Beer Company at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Old bottle but still in pretty good nick - apricot meshes well with the strong Belgian-ish ale. I dig it.
- Greg C. is drinking a Mature Situations by Goose Island Brewhouse Toronto at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Everything noted in the description - honey, blackberry, lemon, Pinot Noir - is there in great balance. Nicely done.
- Greg C. is drinking a 21st Century Means by Stillwater Artisanal at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Not sure what they’re going for here. Malty amber ale crossed with dry & peppery farmhouse beer? It’s... weird.
- Greg C. is drinking a Ruby by Burdock at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Another great saison-wine hybrid from Burdock. Lots of berry & fruit-forward wine notes. Summery & refreshing.
