by Steve Beauchesne for Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, a ‘Certified Good Food Fighter‘
So, this is my first post on Good Food Revolution, hooray! I’ve been writing my own blog “How To Start A Brewery (In One Million Easy Steps)” for almost five years now, although truth be told I’m sort of on-again-off-again in my contributions. Coincidentally enough, it’s been almost five years since I started Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co. along with my dad (his name is Tim). That however, has been full-on, never-off, since day one.
We’re located in Eastern Ontario and have only been selling into Toronto for a year now (click here to find our beer on tap or at the LCBO), so I figure that there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of us yet. So as a way of introduction, hopefully without sounding like an advertisement, we’re located in a small town outside of Ottawa, we’re a family-run brewery full of beer-enthusiasts. All our beer is organic (yes, certified, but our certifier says we should only use certified when we say who the certifier is…ok, they are Pro-Cert for the record, so I guess I could have skipped all this extra writing, oh well), and we’ve won a lot of awards for it, too. But enough about us…
I’m very excited to be invited to contribute to this vibrant and awe-inspiring group and hope I can add a small piece to the discussion. There are lots of cool things happening in the world of craft-beer and I promise not to just talk about myself and my brewery.
