Book Description

May 27 2014 American Palate
Ontario boasts a potent mix of brewing traditions. Wherever Europeans explored, battled, and settled, beer was not far behind, which brought the simple magic of brewing to Ontario in the 1670s. Early Hudson's Bay Company traders brewed in Canada's Arctic, and Loyalist refugees brought the craft north in the 1780s. Early 1900s temperance activists drove the industry largely underground but couldn't dry up the quest to quench Ontarians' thirst. The heavy regulation that replaced prohibition centralized surviving breweries. Today, independent breweries are booming and writing their own chapters in the Ontario beer story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A heady read June 7 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the discussion of the contextual early history of Ontario to be as fascinating and informative as the discussion of the breweries themselves. This an easy and very enjoyable read with great photos.
