Still in the region, Cambridge's Grand River makes brews that are simple but elegant. They turned me back into an appreciator of low-hopped beers...I had been trying to find the next Arrogant *******, but they make lighter ales and lagers...1913 traditional, Galt Knife, Hannenberg Pils.

Anyway, the beer snob in me says, get away from the macros. Go to your local brewery or hit the LCBO. If anything, you're supporting good jobs and the local economy.

For relevant NE content, I lived in Maine in the 90s. Ontario is just now catching up to what was happening in Maine and Mass back then. It's about time.
Thanks for the history lesson, but Sleemans, has been brewing beer since 1834 and have excellent tasting beers!...or should I say notoriously good?
Original Draft, Silver Creek, Cream Ale, Honey Brown Lager and IPA are my favorite selections, but I don't like Sleemans Clear.
