Tall Boys and Bombers of Niagara Falls

Another entry for my beer travelogue…

NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario, January 2016 — I’ll close out my Niagara Falls trip report with the excellent brews I sampled from the local beer store. I loved walking around the Falls and exploring the local area, especially my visit to Niagara Brewing Company. But I also spent plenty of time during breaks in the convention relaxing in my room , where I enjoyed Canadian brew and a beautiful view of the Falls.
