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 La Fin du Monde by Unibroue at King & Dufferin7.5 year old bottle. Obvious oxidization - low carbonation, quite sweet & slightly musty, lacks usual spiciness. But still very enjoyable.
- Greg C. is drinking a Flanders Red (B.A.) by Forked River Brewing Company at King & DufferinImpressive complexity, good balance to the barrel aging, great sour cherry & tart plum flavours, no harsh balsamic vinegar notes. Well done!
- Greg C. is drinking a Rodenbach Grand Cru by Brouwerij Rodenbach at King & DufferinGave 3.75 to a bottle I had last year. This one seemed back on form. Still not quite what it used to be? Perhaps. But still a classic, too.
- Greg C. is drinking an Auko by Burdock at King & DufferinStrong notes of dark cherry & tart berries, wine & wood, subtle touch of vinegar. Barely a hint of booze, very well balanced for the abv.
- Greg C. is drinking a Nightwatcher Oatmeal Stout by Lake of Bays Brewing Company at King & DufferinNicely flavoured on-style stout - roast malt, sweet toasted cereal, moderately dry finish - but lacks fullsome body expected in the style.
