Persian Empire

Postby Coronaeus » Thu Dec 17, 2020 6:10 pm

Has anyone heard of this place? It popped up in my Facebook feed. The oddly named beers and low budget graphic design make me morbidly curious:

Indian Pale Ale

Otanobee River lager Belgian Style Beer (in Fraktur style lettering).

Dark Porter Beer.


I think I need to try this. The website is impressive too

I had Otanabee River on my "brewery" list but didn't really know much of anything about them.

$2.25 for 473 ml cans is pretty inexpensive, including the imperial ipa. I wonder if you get your money's worth.

At least they have the decency to categorize their beer as alcoholic and non alcoholic. That's a big help. Also, their brand is "Canada's No 1" at something. Good for them!

As for the price, remember 2/3 of new breweries seem to be started by accountants wanting a change of life. This might be a really good accountant with great cost control skills. Anyway, another accountant starting a brewery is far less annoying than one buying a Harley with straight pipes and deciding to cosplay rebel gangster...

I can’t see a reason to ever find myself in Peterborough, but if I do, I’ll see if I can grab a can of each for science. Also, a jeroboam of Arak seems like a no-brainer to me.
