The first comprehensive book of its kind since 1993’s Ontario Beer Guide by Jamie Mackinnon, The Ontario Craft Beer Guide will “detail the many breweries, brewpubs, and contract breweries this great province offers along with providing brief expert reviews of their offerings.”
“Ontario’s beer scene is expanding so quickly that it’s daunting to keep track of it all,” says St. John in a statement announcing the book. “For the first time since 1993, beer drinkers will have a handy reference guide to help them navigate all of the choices they now have.”
“I think a common misconception with many people is that Ontario has fewer breweries than it actually has,” adds LeBlanc. “One of the goals of this guide is to both showcase and celebrate the well over 200 establishments brewing some damn fine, and in some cases world class, beer.”
