Recipe: Chef Tim’s new food column in The Glebe Report

Chef Tim is writing a food column for our friends at The Glebe Report, and Tim's first outing is all about his unexpected conversion to beer-can chicken. He was skeptical of the method, but a bit of family pressure convinced him to give it a try and now he's a believer - though he has a couple of surprises in store for readers. He also includes a recipe and instructions, so drink up half a can of beer so you can use the rest and get cooking!

Canada’s beer border battle continues . . .

It's been three years since we brewed our Gerard Comeau Brut IPA, which brought attention to the interprovincial trade barriers that continue to bedevil the beer industry, and many other industries in Canada.

Our Campaign for Park Beers gains steam

Owner Dave was on CBC's All In A Day to talk to host Alan Neal about beer in parks. Why can't Canadians drink in parks, an enjoyable pastime that is permitted in so many other countries? If the City of Ottawa were to get behind pop up beer sales in city parks it could make a huge difference for the majority of breweries and restaurants that do not have patios and are struggling to survive the COVID shutdown.Click here to read the CBC story about the Campaign for Park Beers, and listen to Dave's conversation with Alan. If you support the idea, let your city councillor...
