From West to.. East
Though Canada’s craft beer renaissance may be developing slowly and still in its early stages, the movement is steady and irreversible. Which is good news for me.
So far, more interesting beers and diversity has sprung up on the west coast, notably in British Columbia. With native hops, privatized beer vendors, and a far flung geographic location that left a brewing legacy relatively unscathed from Prohibition; this region has picked up the reigns on inventive brewing much faster than its eastern counterparts. Which was bad news for me.
Until today. Tree Brewing Co’s beers are making there way from Kelowna to Toronto to greet me, just as I cross the border. I’m not sure how this fortune has been made possible. Does anyone out there know if they are contract brewing in Ontario, or has there been some miraculous relaxation in cross-provincial distribution laws?
