Going for a round? You'll want one of these beers
By Don McSwiney for Avenue Calgary's June edition.
Don McSwiney’s beer drinking resume includes 25 years of enthusiastic consumption, as a private citizen and member of The Dino Martinis. Turn-ons include long walks on the beach, beer, discovering great new beer and talking or writing about beer. Turn-offs include beer snobs and those unwilling to give different beer styles a chance.
Mill St. Brewery, Toronto, Ont.
A good version of English bitter, which is basically American IPA’s quiet cousin. Creamy, sweet, with a hint of caramel malt, and (standard) subdued hops, it’s an easy pub drinker.
Where to drink it: Turn on Coronation Street or sit by the fire for a nice night in.
Pairing: With fish and chips or bangers and mash.
