04 May Rainhard Turns Two
We had a pretty good April. The first Aleyards Spring BBQ on April 22nd was a huge success, inspiring us to do more. And last week, Rainhard Brewing took home three more awards from the Ontario Brewing Awards! All repeat winners:
Gold – Sweetback’s Milk Stout (Gold Medal, 2016 OBAs)
Silver – Lazy Bones IPA (Gold, 2016 CBAs)
Silver – Hop Cone Syndrome Double IPA (Silver, 2016 CBAs)
(Currently in the fridge and on tap we’ve got lots of Sweetback’s and a little bit more Hop Cone Syndrome, but we’re fresh out of Lazy Bones.)
But that’s no reason to rest on our laurels. We’re hard at work preparing for our second anniversary party – yes, Rainhard Brewing Co. will be turning 2 years old on May 27th. It’s been a long and very rewarding two years, with dozens of beers, eight awards (and counting… the Canadian Brewing Awards are being held May 20th), our first LCBO listing, the launch of our barrel program (expect a lot more from that this year) and a lot of man-hours turning this former refinery into a home away from home for our many now and future regulars.
So come celebrate as we enter year 3 of Rainhard Brewing on May 27th. Joining us once again will be Fool Hearts, playing between 12 and 6, and the very, very tasty Gourmet Guyz food truck. We’re also prepping some very special beer releases for this event… to be announced. More details released closer to!
