Oast House Brewers Strawberry Rhubarb Ale

What long weekend doesn’t cry out for a road trip? Head on over to Niagara on the Lake and pop into Oast House Brewers to try a pint of their Strawberry Rhubarb Ale. Made from the local fresh produce this beer is highly anticipated each Spring. Only available for a short time, don’t miss out on this refreshing ale full of sweet strawberries, tart rhubarb and a hint of buttery pie crust. And don’t say I didn’t warn you when you stop off at a roadside market to stock up to make your own pie at home.

Looking for something with all the summer style and less of the alcoholic kick? As more and more people are reducing their alcohol consumption Atypique is an excellent choice with delicious and innovative products. These zero-proof cocktails are modelled after some classic bartender offerings with Spritz, Mojito, Spiced Rum and Cola, Gin and Tonic and Amaretto Sour. Up your hosting cred with these on hand for guests.
