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 an O-Pee-Chee Lager (Ides of January 2019) by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinSimple & balanced pale lager that served well to cut the heat of some spicy Chinese food. Sometimes that’s all you really need.
- Greg C. is drinking a Farmhouse Brett by The Six Brewing Co. at The Six Brewing Co.Nicely balanced between fruity & funky Brett characteristics. Melon, Mayer lemon, touch of bandaid. Fairly dry finish. Good stuff!
- Greg C. is drinking an I Swear Sugarpants, It Was Your Idea 2019 by Sawdust City Brewing Co. at King & DufferinNot sure why there are separate annual entries for this beer, but I’ll go with it. Has cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla & cream notes as promised.
- Greg C. is drinking a Low Voltage by Powerhouse Brewing Company at King & DufferinClean & simple golden ale. Needs a bit more body to be a true cream ale, IMO, but still a well-crafted thirst-quencher.
- Greg C. is drinking a Ryevalry Roggenbier by Mill Street Brewery at King & DufferinFruity esters and sweet malt dominate, with earthy/peppery rye providing a nice backnote. Hint of banana bread as well. Nicely done.
