Our food-obsessed culture is more interested than ever in sourcing their food locally, and local food experiences have become one of the primary travel motivators. Through a comprehensive study, we discovered the rise of food tourism is driven by the values of the modern consumer, specifically millennials, who look for immersive travel experiences.
Beer producers have often been on the forefront of marketing trends, finding edgy new ways of capturing the attention of drinkers and making sure their brand loyalty is strong. Even in the early days of advertising, beer brands were the ones responsible for pushing the envelope and finding new ways of engaging consumers.

It can be hard to admit that summer has ended and that fall is officially here, but there is one exceptionally great way to ease the pain, and that's celebrating in style. Nothing says fall better than Oktoberfest, the annual Bavarian tradition that dates back over 200 years. While the true celebration has to be experienced in Munich, there are actually some great Canadian events that try to duplicate the festivities without having to travel abroad.

Though summer (and patio season) is soon coming to an end, there's no reason to exchange a cold brew for eggnog just yet. From full-bodied ales to refreshing lagers, craft beer has evolved from a fad to its own market. Whether you're in North America or across the pond, you're bound to find variations of a "cold one." Cheers!

Prior to the NDP taking power in 2015, Alberta enjoyed the best market for beer in all of Canada. Although, it was by no means perfect, Albertans were able to enjoy a far greater selection of products from around the world at a much more competitive price than any other consumers in any other province. Then the tinkering started.

One of the first suggestions I would make for those looking to have full recollection while out networking with a drink in hand: you need to understand how much your body can handle. You need to understand how much of this potent yet delicious stuff can sit in your body.

The LCBO is hoping to cash in on marijuana sales. The dubious reasoning being that they, and only they, are capable of handling the burdensome task of quenching the insatiable thirst of millions of Ontarian adults -- so obviously they and only they are responsible enough to distribute marijuana. Too bad Ontarians don't view it this way.

Nothing pairs better during a hot summer day than a cold beer, and there's no better way to experience that cold beer than at the best beer festivals across the country. From coast to coast, Canadians have taken a dedicated interest in craft beer, and it shows; many new beer festivals have popped up in the last few years, and despite being relatively new, have grown to substantial proportions.

When hosting a dinner party, it's almost become second nature to make sure there are a couple bottles of wine at the ready. In fact, most guests will even bring a bottle or two to make sure there is ample supply for the evening. While it's true that wine and food pairing has been a customary part of history for ages, this dedication to serving appropriate wine and food pairings is a relatively recent cultural phenomenon. We think it's time to get back to discovering great beer pairings.

Craft cocktails are all the rage and mixology is alive and well throughout the country. Whether you prefer a simple cocktail (the type your parents might have enjoyed, like a gimlet) or something a bit hipper (from prohibition-styled cocktails to exotic mixes), Pittsburgh has it all.

On October 29, the Calgary Herald reported that big changes would be coming that will affect craft brewing in the province. Brewers from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and B.C. would receive favoured treatment while beer originating from outside of these provinces will be taxed 20 to 30 per cent more than suds originating from within.

Up until now, Real Sports Bar & Grill and the Toronto Blue Jays shared some uncanny qualities. Both are well known brands and ongoing support for these entities are due to hopes for a positive experience. But instead, we end up with subpar sentiments -- the former with drab & dismally made bar food and the latter with season after disappointing season.
"Sorry sir, we've reached our sales quota, you'll have to wait until next year to buy beer." Words from a Soviet-era dispensary or a modern day grocery store? The government announced it was building a program to allow alcohol sales outside of the traditional methods -- unfortunately, any grocer selling six-packs will only be able to sell up to a maximum quota or run the risk of additional charges for meeting consumer demand.

The jig is up! After exploring Norfolk County, I'm sharing four of the best kept (and delicious!) secrets about the culinary scene in Ontario's Southwest.

There's nary a person who can deny the seductive charms of a burger. Once you've found "the one," you'll fiercely defend it as your favourite -- to have someone spew vitriol at it would be akin to fir...
The Ontario Liberal government's recent announcement to allow beer sales in grocery stores and craft brewer membership to The Beer Store's executive board is a first step to actually repealing prohibitive practices from production to distribution to consumer rights. But from the production to the sales process, Ontario liquor laws are antiquated as the ideals that formed them. This prohibition won't end in earnest until the playing field is leveled and competition, real competition, is allowed in Ontario.

It's time for Ontario to liberate local beer. It makes no sense to persist in enabling big beer to have an unfair advantage over our homegrown craft breweries.
