Ramblin’ Road Brewery Farm

2970 Swimming Pool Road, La Salette.

Peanuts with your beer? Ramblin’ Road traces

its entrepreneurial food, family farming,

and beverage lineage

to Picard Peanuts.

An early player in

farm-based brewing,

Ramblin’ Road has

the perfect gift for

the craft beer fan on

your Christmas list

— a “Quick Six” pack

“grown” on the farm

and featuring Pure

Bred Red and Ramblin’

Road’s lager family, and its IPA. Piquing

interest is Dakota Pearl Ale made with the

same potatoes used to make Ramblin’ Road’s

kettle chips. The pairing seems obvious.

Dundas & Sons Brewing Company

400 Adelaide Street North, London. Rob

Dundas, the big bearded owner of Old East

Village’s tiniest brewery will make you feel

at home. Dundas &

Sons, which famously

uses hops grown on

the owner’s porch,

brews beer styles

you’d expect, such

as an American pale

ale, and some you

might not, such as

a honey elderberry

saison. The board changes frequently and

the selection is supplemented by kegs from

other brewers..

GEORGE MACKE is a craft beer fan living in London.
