Bamboo Beer Launching Soon in Ontario


TORONTO, ON – In what is believed to be a first in North America, if not the world, Ontario drinkers will soon be able to purchase a beer made with bamboo as the primary ingredient.

Developed by Vincent Villanis, a Filipino businessman who owns bamboo farms in Grimsby and St. Catharines, Bamboo Beer is a 5.7% abv ale brewed from a tea made from bamboo and hops.

Bamboo Beer is being contract brewed at Cool Brewing, and will be launched at the the Filipinos Making Waves Festival taking place at Yonge-Dundas Suqare in Toronto on July 13th. More details will be posted as available on the Bamboo Beer Facebook page and website.

    1. Bamboo has the best component to balance with hops due to its anti oxidants and natural perservatives. A perfect balance for beer. Even the best master brewers in Ontario are craving for it. You should try it and you will be in for a big surprise! Plus it is made locally..Unless you are one of those who support the big monopolies.

  1. I’ll certainly give it a try Kevin and I don’t doubt for a minute that it’s good. My only point being, could it be considered beer if made with bamboo? I’m a bit of a purist you know.

    And yes I always buy local…never support a multi national giant.
