New Beer Writer at The Star

Local beer lovers were saddened by last month's announcement by Jon Filson that he would no longer be writing regular beer features for The Toronto Star. But it looks like the paper's commitment to positive beer coverage remains, as they have recently brought in writer Josh Rubin to helm a new weekly feature called What's Brewing.

The column has been running for several weeks now, and has already featured some great locals & imports:

Sep 20th - "A bottle of joe?" (Mill Street Coffee Porter)
Sep 27th - "Beer with divine links is Trappist" (Westmalle Dubbel)
Oct 4th - "Roll out the barrel" (Taps Wine Barrel Lager)
Oct 11th - "What to drink in October" (Amsterdam Oktoberfest)

The seasonal Amsterdam brew also got some coverage in last week's installment of Suds, the weekly column written by Aonghus Kealy for the free daily paper Metro. Other recent articles by Kealy have focussed on Walkerville Light, King Dark Lager & Negra Modelo.
