Upcoming Events

Barley's Angels has announced two events that they are planning.  The first is a taste of Cassel Brewery's new Maple Rye, scheduled for April 27 from 5 pm to 7 pm. Tickets are $25 and can be bought via Eventbrite.  The second is a tasting of Quebec beers at Bières du Monde in Gatineau on May 4.  Tickets are $10, include samples and snacks, and can also be bought at Eventbrite.


Ron Eade of the Ottawa Citizen has a story about the historic Cheshire Cat pub in Carp, which burned down due to a fire and which is scheduled to reopen this fall.

Reviews / Recommendations

Beer O'Clock reviews Sorachi Ace (7.6% ABV) from Brooklyn Brewery in New York State, and gives it a score of 3.5 out of 5.

TBBs recommends two bottles of wine.  The first is Ménage à Trois from California, while the second is Kingston Estate Petit Verdot from South Australia.  For its part, wine out loud suggests the Chenin Blanc 2012 from KWV.


The blog wine out loud describes how to make a breakfast cocktail, albeit a "late" breakfast from 11 am onwards.
