Ontario Brewery Mania: Banded Goose Brewing Enters Kingsville

It starts around Thanksgiving and lasts until just after Christmas, the glorious time where ex-pats return to their hometown and live in their parents’ basement ‘just like back in the day’.  Returning Kingsvillian’s have another great thing to look forward to in 2014, a new nano-brewery at the exceptional Jack’s Gastropub.  With about a dozen taps serving up a number of Ontario micro-breweries, Jack’s has decided to take the next step and experiment with a nano-sized system in their basement under the Banded Goose Brewing moniker.

Great mouth-feel and finish, lightly hopped with fruity notes.

The Ontario brewing industry is clearly moving toward a more immediate market where many small towns and cities will be able to support smaller breweries that are able to scale organically as local demand grows.  Banded Goose is the first example in Essex County and their first batch of the Notty Blonde Ale had a great, creamy mouth feel, finished with beautiful lightness and a hint of fruit.

Cheers to the latest addition to Ontario’s burgeoning beer industry!
