TORONTO, ON – Toronto-based writer Stephen Beaumont has announced the redesign and relaunch of his website, Beaumont Drinks, as a dedicated beer and spirits review site.
As described in the press release:
Designed for ease of navigation and free to access for all interested aficionados of beer and spirits, Beaumont Drinks showcases detailed reviews of spirits and beers available in Canada, whether produced domestically or imported.
Additionally, ‘Portfolio Spotlight’ reviews will highlight up to a dozen spirits or beers produced by a single distillery or brewery and ‘Category Spotlight’ overviews will cover a range of products within a single category, such as the rhums agricole of Martinique or Bavarian style wheat beers.
Rounding out the site’s content are ‘Will Travel’ reports on specific beer or spirits tourism destinations, inspired by Beaumont’s 2018 book, Will Travel for Beer.
“While quality, flavour-filled spirits and beer have never been more popular, these are tough times for traditional media and I was finding editors reluctantly saying no to beverage stories simply because they didn’t have the space available,” says Beaumont in a statement. “Eventually, I decided that the best way to give these great beers and spirits coverage was to do it myself.”
All reviews have been written specifically for Beaumont Drinks, and each product is ranked under a 100-point scoring system that ranges from “seriously flawed, avoid” (<50) to “stunning, a legitimate classic” (96-100), with beverages that “stand out for both character and value” receiving a special ‘Critic’s Choice’ designation.
For more details and to view the initial wave of reviews and articles, see the Beaumont Drinks website.
