MPPs and Queen’s Park staffers recently tasted 48 beers from 15 craft breweries and chose seven to highlight at the Legislative Assembly dining room and other Queen’s Park venues in 2010 and 2011.
Golden lagers & pilsners:
Beau’s Lug Tread Lagered Ale (Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co.)
Cameron’s Cream Ale (Cameron’s Brewing Co.)
Amber lagers, ales & honey beers:
Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion Almost Pale Ale (Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery)
Malty dark lager or ale:
Muskoka Dark Ale (Muskoka Cottage Brewery)
Bold-flavoured ale, stout or porter:
Ploughman’s Ale (Grand River Brewery)
Wheat beer & specialty:
Mill Street Lemon Tea Beer (Mill Street Brewery)
Railway City Dead Elephant Ale (Railway City Brewing)
All jokes about their categorization aside, this sounds like a damn good selection. Many bars in town could take a page out of their book. I just have two questions:
1) How do I become a Queen’s Park staffer so I can waste our tax dollars sitting around tasting dozens of beers?
2) How can I get into this Legislative Assembly dining room to hang out for a drink?
