Beer? That's cool, let’s talk beer. There’s so much beer out there. So many kinds, and I love them all. An estimated 21.9 million hectolitres of booze is produced every year, according to The Canadian Brewing Industry making beer Canada's most consumed alcoholic beverage.
There are generally two types of beer – lagers and ales and a variety of kinds that fall under these two umbrellas.
Lager. Lager in German means storage. Fitting because this type of beer is stored for weeks or months until it’s ready. It ferments at below 10 degrees Celsius.
Amber lager. The original lager, amber in colour with a slight malt sweetness.
Ale. Fermented at temps warmer than 15 degrees Celsius and the oldest form of beer. More full bodied and fruity.
Amber ale. Slowly fermented. Large head with richer flavour.
Pilsner. Is a style of lager – all pilsners are lagers, but not all lagers are pilsners. First created in 1842 in Plzen, Czech. Since then many have recreated the simple straw pale beer style. Easily the world’s most popular beer.
Belgian style. White/wheat ale. Brewed with a lot of wheat along with malted barley. Cloudy from the wheat protein. Uses orange peel and coriander for flavour.
India pale ale. Hoppy with higher alcohol content. Bold, and copper in colour.
Stout. Beer made with roasted malt or barely.
Fruit beer. Fruit is added during the fermentation process. Dryer beer.

Spring Fashion Focus. - The Hi and Low How-To
You’ve seen it – short in the front, long and drapey in the back. A mullet of the fashion sorts. Don't be left out this spring and summer. Dresses and tops have been reinvented, and it’s oh so flattering!
Hi-lo dresses need bare legs or leggings and boots. Most of the tops are in chiffon or light cotton – which fits and lays best with a snug cami underneath. This style is defiantly sticking around for the summer!
Another trend pairing with this look is the high-waist jean. Denim is coming up, way up. Tuck in your muffin top and show off the smallest part of your waist. Low riders are out!
