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 a London Porter by Riverhead Brewing Company at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Roast - almost burnt - malt. Notes of dark roast coffee and cocoa husks. Needs a bit more body but generally well made.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hammer of Sucellus by Humalove Brewing at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Smells old & oxidized. Flavour is short and strongly bitter. Not much subtlety or complexity. Not to my taste. Ah well.
- Greg C. is drinking a Commissar by Unfiltered Brewing at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Some age on this, but held up well. Malty, boozy, rum & dark sugar. Warm finish, hit of bitterness. Rough but great.
- Greg C. is drinking a Ladder To the Moon by Henderson Brewing Co at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. Excellent melding of saison, herbs & barrel. Works so much better than it should. Very impressed!
- Greg C. is drinking an UVB-76 Mikhail by Wellington Brewery at The Kay Gardner Beltline TrailSplit at tasting. A step above its siblings. The spices work so well with the cocoa & vanilla notes. Absolutely fantastic.
