The Exchange Brewery is very honoured to have received Gold and Bronze for two of its signature beers, at the 15th annual Ontario Brewing Awards.
Ontario Brewing Awards for The Exchange Brewery:
GOLD: Peppercorn Rye Saison – Farmhouse Blonde Category
BRONZE: Grand Cru – Barrel-Aged Red Wine Category
“The brewing staff is extremely pleased to take home two awards for some of our favourite barrel-aged beers. We are also very proud to have our Peppercorn Rye Saison take home a gold because it really showcases the ethos of our brewery and our love of dry, funky saisons.” says Sam Maxbauer, Head Brewer at The Exchange Brewery.
“I’m thrilled to see my favourite of our non-sour barrel aged beers, the Peppercorn Rye Saison, taking home a Gold medal.” says Robin Ridesic, CEO and Founder of The Exchange Brewery. “I love the subtle flavours from the rye and peppercorns that add such a depth to this beer – and of course the funk from the brett! Glad the judges love it as much as I do.”
“Our Peppercorn Rye Saison is currently available in the LCBO and we think it’s great to be offering such a premium-quality Farmhouse blonde to Ontarians. Go grab your bottle(s) now!” adds Audrey Le Goff, Marketing & PR Coordinator.
These 2018 award wins follow in last year’s footsteps, where The Exchange Brewery had won gold, silver and bronze. The Ontario Brewing Awards testifies to the ever-growing vitality and originality of the Ontario Beer scene; and The Exchange Brewery is truly honoured to be recognized year after year for playing a significant part in it.
