Another Baby Step

Another week and another small step for the Sawdust City Brewing Co.  On Wednesday, October 5th we received our go ahead from the AGCO to proceed to the second phase of the procedure to get our Manufacturers Licence!

The next step is sending our beer to the LCBO labs in Toronto for testing.  We have some of our brands brewed already, so that will be in their hands as early as next week.  They say it takes 3-10 business days to get the tests done, so it's getting closer.  Hopefully if all goes according to Hoyle, our beer will be hitting a local purveyor of fine ales by the middle of Fall.  So keep your eyes peeled.

This weekend is also Thanksgiving weekend and we've decided to brew a beer to mark the occasion and give thanks to everyone that has been supporting us during our long start up phase.  We brewed Noddy Pine Pale Ale at the Niagara College Teaching Brewery using a single hop, Galaxy.  Hailing from the Land Down Under, this hop packs a tropical punch.  Loaded with passion fruit aromas and citrusy flavours this ale will bring you back to those days of summer which now seem like a distant memory.  Depending on how it goes over, this maybe a flavour you'll see popping up in a Sawdust City brew in the near future!

Noddy Pine will only be available at the Griffin Gastropub in Bracebridge and there is a very limited quantity.  Once it's gone, it's gone.  It goes on tap tonight, so if you can make it out, swing by and try the Noddy Pine!

The next few weeks are going to be very exciting for Sawdust City.  Not only are we closing in on getting our Manufacturers Licence but we are going to be involved in a few beer events across Ontario and you may see another very special brew pop up at the Griffin in the very near future.  So stay tuned to our blog and our facebook page for further updates on the events and where you can find Sawdust City beer!

Anyhoo, that's about it for now.  Until next time, keep the beer in your mugs and the sawdust beneath your feet.
