Sounds like beer

My good friend Matt Gibson, a lawyer turned beer blogger, has been kind enough to lead me through some amazing beer tastings over the last few years. Lately, we’ve both been getting more adventurous with our tastings; he’s now taking the Prud’homme Beer Certification and, well, I’ve simply started tasting on my own. But still! It’s exciting, and I’ve been getting more and more into it.

Clearly, I’m a big fan of Canada. This has led me to love all things local, and when I travel, I always make sure to try any local flavour that the city or town has to offer. With the rise of craft beer over the last few years, it’s become much easier to obtain local beers when traveling and it’s been a really fun way to do beer tastings!

Earlier this month, I went to Wolfville for a CD launch of Kitchen Party, a fabulous disc of new music that I just produced with the record label I manage, Centrediscs.

I was chatting with Matt, and he asked if I would like to do a guest post on his blog and taste some brews that the East Coast has to offer. Tough sell… not.

To read the post and check out what I thought about these brews, head on over to Matt’s blog.

I liked this so much, that I plan to ask him to let me try this again for the trips I have coming up this spring (what do you say, Matt?). For work/pleasure, I have a few jaunts coming up, so come back and visit throughout the spring to hear about local beers from:
– Vancouver
– Winnipeg
– Charlottetown
– Ottawa
– Vienna (!)

If you’ve been to any local breweries at any of the above locations and have some recommendations, please do let me know!
