Cowbell Brewing opened in sleepy Blyth, Ontario, with a restaurant, multiple event spaces and a state of the art carbon-neutral brewhouse. There are plans to add an amphitheatre for outdoor concerts and a working farm. Their brews are cheekily named after local legends, so Boxing Bruin IPA is a tribute to a rescue bear named Bruin kept by a vet in the 1800s. The two would put on impromptu boxing matches at the office (!). This IPA has big juicy tropical fruit aromas like mango juice and pineapple, with a bold hop bitterness on the sip and prickly, palate-cleansing carbonation.
