Snow 3 Comments »

neustadt-snow-day.JPGHey Guys and Gals

So you think you have had it rough in TO today. Well let me show you why we love living in the snow belt. We like to have snow days, when we can stay in bed when all the roads are closed in our county and every county around us………I don’t think!. Luckily we live in the brewery so we don’t have an excuse to say we cann’t get in to work. Your favourite tipple is still being produced ready for when we can escape Grey County. Stay warm work up a thirst!

Happy New Year! 1 Comment »

Hey Guys and Gals

Happy New Year from every one at Neustadt.

2007 flew by and saw a lot of changes at Neustadt. We celibrated our 10th anniversay on 23rd December. Launched a celebration Decade Bitter for the occasion (only available from the brewery) Re launched our winter beer Big Dog Porter, this year working with Pele Island and using thier red wine in the porter. Launched our beers into .473 cans (we are still waiting for LCBO approval for the Lager) Managed to fit a lot of alterations in (thanks to Andrew working round the clock) please forgive him if he looks half asleep, I think he could sleep on a clothes line!

2008 promises a lot more of ………….. a day in the life of Neustadt! be it good or bad we really do have a sense of humour. Bring it on 2008 we are ready, as most of the Ontario Craft Brewers are. All I have to do now is wake Andrew up to go and pick our new brewer Rob Beck from the airport. He is flying in from England ( yes we are bringing in the best of the best) and he will be working with Andrew for the next 12 months (somebody has to keep Andrew awake)Â

Oh! and if anybody finds a portable garage in Peterbourgh, Oshawa area please send it home it’s mine for my smart car it disapeared yesterday in that high wind!
