Ontario got its biggest order of American craft beer ever at the beginning of this month, compliments of Oregon's Rogue Brewery. Most of the release is widely available throughout the province with one more hitting shelves later this week, however the Double Dead Guy was in limited supply with only 20 cases available in the entire province. If you missed out on Double Dead Guy the LCBO has ordered 45 more cases that will probably take another 8 weeks to hit shelves, but it's better late than never I suppose. The standout for me from this release has been Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale. Its dry and hoppy, with lots of citrus balanced by a chewy malt that makes it bitter, refreshing and satisfying.
Rogue will also be at Session 99 craft beer festival June 25th at 99 Sudbury Street.
