I’m usually not a beer lover, but I’ve found the first beer that I can say that I love! Gillian is Belgian style farmhouse ale for wine lovers. This sour ale is brewed by Goose Island and it’s only available as of today at the LCBO Summerhill location or online!
So, what makes this beer so special? Like wine, Gillian is aged. Gillian starts as a farmhouse ale that is then put in a barrel with 40 pounds of fresh local strawberries from a family farm in Michigan and Belgian wild yeast. The beer goes through a second fermentation in the barrel for 2 weeks, and then rests for 2 months in neutralized red wine barrels. (more…)
I love being pleasantly surprised. Who doesn’t? I went out for Winterlicious lunch with my coworkers to a nearby brew pub. I had heard good things about it, and when I saw that they were participating in Winterlicious with a 3 course lunch for $18, I knew I had to go.
Batch looks unassuming from the outside, but is actually huge. They brew their own beer and it also looks like the serve up a great brunch. Our lunch came quickly, which we appreciated!
It was a tough decision for me, but I chose the Beer and potato soup instead of the housemade pretzel. (more…)
Scarborough Town Centre holds a soft spot in my heart. It’s the mall that I would hang out in while growing up in high school, and the mall that my family shops at. I’ve been so happy to watch the mall expand and grow.

I love to bake, but I can’t say that I love to cook. I’m a big foodie and enjoy eating all sorts of meals, but don’t often cook meat heavy dishes. When duBreton sent over some delicious and easy sounding recipes, I knew that I wanted to whip one (or two!) up. (more…)
