It seeped onto the CNE scene last year as the first beer of its kind in Canada, and now the all-Canadian beer is back.
Niagara College Teaching Brewery, in collaboration with Sawdust Brewing, brewed up another batch of Great Weiss North beer just in time for the CNE.
The beer includes at least one ingredient from each Canadian province and territory – from the Gambrinus honey malt of British Columbia, to the Partridge berries of Newfoundland and Labrador, and even water from – closer to home – Niagara Falls.
It has been described by NC Brewmaster Jon Downing as a full-bodied wheat beer with a slight taste of honey and herbs, and hints of maple and birch.
Last year, the beer debuted with fanfare at the CNE, as the first beer of its kind by a craft brewery in Canada.
Those who can’t make it to the CNE this year however, don’t have to miss out on sampling this taste of Canada.
The beer is also available at NC’s retail beer store, located behind the greenhouse at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus.
