  • A must-have book for anyone interested in exploring local Ontario beer.
  • First guidebook like this since 1993's Ontario Beer Guide by Jamie Mackinnon. The rise of the craft beer scene has created many new breweries and beers in Ontario since then.
  • Authors are highly regarded both within and outside the industry, with Jordan's work as Sun Media's beer columnist for four years, and Robin's international recognition with the Saveur Magazine Best Food Blog Award, among other accolades. 
  • World renowned beer writer Stephen Beaumont (The World Atlas of Beer and The Pocket Beer Guide) to write the foreword, an endorsement sure to interest his many devoted readers. 
  • The tourism aspect of the guide can't be ignored, as it will be in essence a bucket list for anyone planning a beer road trip through the province.
