While we were staying in Courtenay, we learned that there were two breweries in town plus another one in Cumberland. It was a very hot summer day and we needed some refreshing beer to cool us down, so we paid Gladstone Brewing a visit!

And here’s a pop quiz for you: Guess what else I love? If your answer was “Maple”, then here’s a HIGH FIVE for you! I think I’m more excited about this beer than any other so far this year. Seriously. (more…)

And the draw is: Red Racer Three Peaks Belgian Tripel

My first true craft beer was La Fin Du Monde by Unibroue, a delicious Belgian Tripel. This is the style that made me fall in love with craft beer to begin with, and I am always excited to try a new one. (more…)
