This past weekend we attended one of the first events at the yet to be opened Niagara Oast House Brewers. The event was a fundraiser benefiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. 3 beers were featured one of which was a special 'pink' inspired brew as well as catering from El Gastrónomo Vagabundo. In keeping with the 'pink' theme of the event, the brewmaster and chef worked together to include pink peppercorns and pink grapefruit in the featured beer and entree. El Gastrónomo didn't dissapoint with their fresh and flavorful dishes.
What can I say other than that everything was exceptional? The beers, across the board were some of the most amazing and inspired that I've ever tasted. My personal favourite being the Barn Raiser Pale Ale.
I can't wait until Niagara brews make their mark on the Canadian craft beer scene. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to have tasted some of the beers that the Oast House will be offering.
While Niagara-On-The-Lake is renowned for their wineries, the Oast House and Silversmith offer a selection of artisan brews that compete on the level of craft beers we seek out in the US.
Niagara Oast House Brewers is located at 2017 Niagara Stone Rd, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario (just before Jackson Trigg's Estate Winery).
