TORONTO, Ontario, January 2017 —
Every January, I look forward to a trip to Canada for an annual convention. This year I returned to a city I’ve visited many times in the past – Toronto. But as a testament to the growing craft beer scene and my own adventurousness, on this trip to Toronto, I found two new brewpubs! First up: Folly Brewpub.
I was exploring Little Portugal, trying to find the food of my ancestors, when I stumbled upon Folly Brewpub. I did find an amazing lunch, but let’s start with the beer.
There were ten beers on tap, and five of them were Saisons, along with some lesser-known styles, like a Bruin and Grisette. Quite intriguing, but hey, I was in Canada.
So I started working my way through flights of four. One of my flights…
Favorite Beer: Kallipolis, a Tripel that clocked in at 8.0%.
I was most impressed with: The Saison-heavy beer menu — with five Saisons on the menu, I was really able to explore the style.
And oh by the way: Before hitting Folly, I had an amazingly delicious lunch at The Portuguese Chicken Guys. That place hit the spot!
