Hello Summer, is that you?

Well it looks like Summer has come a little early this year and as far as I'm concerned that's welcomed news.  With the mercury rising and the outside gettin' all hot and bothered it's time to lose those pesky long pants and dawn the shorts for another season of fun.  And nothing goes better with good ol' fashioned Summer fun than good ol' fashioned beer!  And it just so happens that I might know some people with some. Hazzah!

In fact, here's some getting all gussied up for a night on the town

Ahhh, don't they look all purdy like?  Look at Ol'Woody trying to stuff it self into them tiny kegs...down right precious!

But seriously, with our second batch of Ol'Woody Alt out the door and hittin' the town, we quickly moved from our delicious Spring beer to our delicious Summer beer, Golden Beach Pale Wheat.  Brewed last week, this hop forward American Pale Wheat Ale will be the perfect foil to that pesky Summer swelter.  At only 4.8% abv and loaded with Galaxy hop goodness, this Summer ale will be hittin' patios in a few brief weeks.

If you don't remember it from it's first appearance last November, take a read on this hear label!

So what else is new you ask?  Well listen close to this. Sawdust City Brewing Co. done just collected it's first award!  That's right folks, our first award show garnered us our first ever medal, a silver in the Flavoured Beer Category for our Skinny Dipping With Friends.  Hazzah!  At last weeks Ontario Brewing Awards, Sawdust City was one of only two new breweries to bring home some hardware.  Pretty sweet if you ask me.  Don't believe me, take a look at this here photo -

Skinny Dipping With Friends was a beer we made for a special Valentine's Day POP-UP Dinner hosted by the Griffin and the Dad's of Bracebridge.  Using our Skinny Dipping Stout as a base, we carefully added Cinnamon and Vanilla to make this one special brew.  If you don't remember it from it's release, take a gander at this here label -

Apparently some folks done liked it real good.  To which we give a mighty big thank you.  We'd also like to give a big congrats to all the other breweries that took home some awards at the show.  I gotta say, it's a great time to be a beer drinker in Ontario.  With so many great breweries producing so many great beers, we are certainly one lucky province. So here's to all of you...cheers!

Lastly, our growlers are here and should be full of delicious beer real soon.  Our filler is being put together as we speak and should be at the brewery soon and with that, we'll get them filled.  Hazzah!  If you can't wait for brewery fresh beer, stop by the Griffin Gastropub in Bracebridge and their new upstairs lounge for some tap-filled growlers.  Don't believe me, take a look at this here pictures -

It done look real good, but it'll done look gooderer when it's full of beer!

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