Shillow Beer Co. Sass on the Side
Ontario, 5.6% alc./vol.
Style: American brown ale
Too bad we sold that trumpet, because this beer deserves some fanfare. Exclusive to beerbistro is this offering from the Ontario’s craft brewery helmed by our very own Jamie Shillow and her husband Ben. Sass on the Side was their first of what is now a lineup of many excellent, regularly produced beers. This American brown ale has layers of flavour from start to finish. Smooth chocolate and delicately roasted malts are at the forefront of a beer that gently converts to an earthen and lightly astringent hoppy bitterness, and then to a quenching off-dry finish. Pairing with a wide variety of dishes, it’s exactly what a beer cuisine restaurant could ask for.
