BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery will be doubling its capacity this weekend with the addition a four new beer tanks to the brewing facility.
Three new 90 hectolitre fermenters and one 100 hectolitre bright beer tank will be crane-lifted through the brewery’s removable roof starting at 8:00 AM on Saturday February 4th, and founder & brewer Peter Chiodo has invited Flying Monkeys fans to come down and watch the “Tank Drop”.
In a press release announcing the event, Chiodo notes that in keeping with the brewery’s efforts to support the local community, the delivery and installation of the tanks will involve a number of local businesses and tradespeople, and that the expansion will allow Flying Monkeys to “better meet the demand for their unique craft beers and continue developing new brands for the specialty beer market.”
- Greg C. is drinking a Blurrryy by MERIT Brewing at King & DufferinCreamsicle notes to start, with grapefruit and pine sneaking up behind & coming on stronger as it warms up. Long bitter finish. Great!
- Greg C. is drinking a Hibiscus Sour by Side Launch Brewing at King & DufferinHibiscus & rosehip is a flavour combo I usually enjoy, and that’s def the case here, as both mesh well with the lemon-leaning base sour.
- Greg C. is drinking a Feels Like Friday by Royal Canadian Mead at King & DufferinBuckwheat honey sits in good balance on a cider-like base. But as with most hopped ciders, I question if hops are really needed in a mead.
- Greg C. is drinking a Daywalker by Rainhard Brewing at Duke's Refresher + BarSeems lighter than I remember in colour & body. Still packed with flavour though. Nice lingering lemon peel & pine notes.
- Greg C. is drinking an Edelhell by Hacker-Pschorr at Otto's BierhalleI’ve been getting into a lager groove lately, mostly locals, but it’s good to revisit the classics once in a while. Prost!
