An upstart Port Credit Brewery which just celebrated the third anniversary of the opening of their tap room last week has captured two medals at the Canadian Brewing Awards, which were held in Quebec City Saturday night.
Stonehooker Brewing, named for the stonehooking schooners that gathered stone slabs out of the shallows of Lake Ontario to be used for building construction in 19th and early 20th centuries, earned a silver for its Dobblebock in the German-style Lager category and a bronze in the North American-style Pale Ale for Broad Reach IPA, which happens to be the first beer they ever released.
Head Brewer Adam Cherry was in Quebec City for the show and was thrilled with the recognition from his peers, particularly for Broad Reach.
“Our loyal supporters have been drinking this since the beginning,” he said. “So proud to be amongst the best that Canada has to offer.”
Kim Reid-Wardrop, who works part-time at the brewery, was even more enthusiastic with the double-medal night at the CBAs, noting she had gone from a “loyal customer on opening weekend” to an employee of an award-winning brewery.
“I am so incredibly happy for our amazing brewing team that I’m lucky to call friends now, who teach me so much every time I work. You guys deserve all these kudos.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
