The Waterloo Region Museum has a great new exhibit inspired by the growing number of women that are getting involved in the craft beer industry. This shouldn’t surprise people so much as traditionally women were the main brewsters, so really these women are just coming back to their roots.
The exhibit takes you through the history of women brewers from Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia through the middle ages and up to modern women, in a fascinating beer journey.

Cheers to Sour Beers
Sour Beer: A deceptively simple term for a complex style. Is sour beer here to stay or a passing trend? I visited Bricks Wine Co. for the “Cheers to Sour Beers” tasting event with Certified Cicerone, Mike Maxwell, to see what the big deal is about sour beer and find out just what makes a sour beer, well… sour.
