Brett wins free beer

Networking and free beer, great combination

Business & Beer finished up 2014 on a high note with the last gathering of the year being held at the Monkish Brewing Company tasting room on December 11. It was cold and blustery evening which was just right for the big Belgian-styled ales and apparently everyone know it would be as we had a pretty nice turnout for two weeks before Christmas. The Bourbon Barrel-aged Magnificat was quite popular, with the St. Simcoe Belgian Pale Ale satisfying the needs of the die-hard hop heads in the group. In addition to the fine beer, Vella Pizza was there with their mobile brick oven making some very good pizza. Denise came with some oils to hand out and she did some tarot card readings for those interested.

Thank you to everyone that came out, not only to the December gathering at Monkish, but to everyone that came out throughout the year and to all the production breweries and brewpubs that hosted our events throughout 2014. We added three new tasting rooms to our rotation in 2014 with the inclusion of King Harbor Brewing Company, Absolution Brewing Company and The Dudes’ Brewing Company. The craft beer scene is really growing around here. I know we will have at least one new addition in 2015, but it is only January so we will see how the year progresses.
