Vanilla Porter — Mill Street Brewery

Vanilla Porter — Mill Street Brewery

As fall seems to have officially hit here in Toronto, it’s no surprise that I find myself with a fridge full of classic cold weather brews.  This one, from Mill Street, is a classic for drinkers at their brewpub or new beer hall in the distillery district.  Long a seasonal favourite, when Mill Street announced […]

Brewer’s Plate Toronto 2011 – Attended!

Oh goodness gracious. What a massive event. This Year’s Brewer’s Plate in Toronto took place in the Wychwood Barns, a really cool City of Toronto event space. It’s an old TTC building, that appears to have housed streetcars, but it’s been hipped up with cleaned up brickwork and old beams. BP had set up in […]

Toronto Beer Week Launch – Mill St Brew Pub

Pilsner – Mill St Brewery

Another of the brews that Mill St released this summer (or at least pushed), to try to expand the brand back into the “craft” market.  Looking at the label is interesting.  They’ve created a “vintage” style label, green and gold with a wheat sheaf and red accents.  The typeface is even a “days of yore” […]

Betelgeuse – Mill St Brewery

So Mill St has really grown since it’s inception, and is now one of the biggest of the “micros” in Ontario. I don’t have the numbers, but I imagine most of the beer they sell is Organic and Tankhouse, a lot of which is served on draught in bars around Toronto.  Which is good.  Those […]

Lemon Tea Beer – Mill St. Brewery

So, as big and corporate as Mill St has gotten, they still do make some pretty unique beers.  They seem to be pushing these beers this summer, releasing them as singles and in a mixed pack available at the LCBO.  Lemon Tea beer sounds like a perfect summer cool-down, so let’s do this. From a […]
