The Canadian Brewing Awards were handed out last night, and it just so happens that some of the winners will be appearing at our beer fest here in two weeks. If you've never had them before, the medal-winning local brews you can expect to find are:
Picaroons' Best Bitter (Gold) and Yippee IPA (Bronze)
Garrison's Hop Yard Pale Ale (Silver) and Irish Red (Bronze)
and, if they show up,
Gahan's Sir John A. Honey Wheat Ale (Gold)
Also of note, Picaroons took home brewery of the year honours.
