Post #19: Beer Passport and our Proust Questionnaire!

Mike Stulberg is the Toronto-based founder of Craft Beer Passport, the program that recently expanded to Ottawa, including Flora Hall Brewing. See more about the program click here.  To get to know Mike a bit better, we invited him to answer our Proust Beer Questionnaire, and here are his answers . . . 1. The first beer I ever drank was . . . a Lakeport Honey from my best friend’s dad’s basement fridge. We would wait until he went to sleep, then sneak downstairs and share a bottle.

Belgian Table Beer release day!

Our recent releases have had roots in Norway (our Kveik Pale Ale), and in Germany (our Strawberry Rhubarb Gose), and now we continue our European tour! Our newest release is a Belgian Table Beer.

Post #11: Will Ottawa have its own Society of Beer Drinking Ladies?

The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies held its first Ottawa “bevy” — think of a mini beer festival — on Saturday, April 14, at the All Saints Event Centre. Flora Hall Brewing was there with three of our beers, and the entire event was a tremendous success. Tickets sold out quickly. The SOBDL began in 2014 when Erica Campbell, who was working at Black Oak Brewery at the time,  approached four lady pals with an idea “to host a sort of secret society with only women in one of our apartments of mostly beer industry women, do a bottle share and hang out, network without guys around.” We...
