Introduction
The Beer Diaries exists to Celebrate and Promote Craft Beer Around the World. We do in-depth interviews with brewers to discuss their breweries and beers, as well as share insights on these amazing people. We've got a YouTube channel and are developing beer-oriented apps to help people enjoy beer even more than they do now.

A lovely tribute to a father, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/les-2-freres-charles-henri-blanche/
It’s Father’s Day, and a recent offering to come across the attention of the Beer Diaries is this Belgian-style witbier, made by a duo of brothers in Quebec – and is a nice tribute by the brewers to their grandfather, who was apparently a master of catching catfish in the Richelieu river (if my rusty …

Some new barley and wheat-free brew, in the Beer Diaries Gluten-Free Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/ground-breaker-corsa-rose-gold-ale/
This one threw me for a while, until I realized that Harvester Brewing is now Ground Breaker Brewing (the result of a rather silly sounding legal challenge last year, from a winery, of all things), and are still of the gluten-free bent.  Made with blackberries, brown rice, oats, and thankfully, hops. Corsa Rose Gold Ale …

Check out a Father's Day brew that spans the generations, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/village-grandfather-west-coast-ipa/
Calgary’s Village Brewing have released this limited-issue offering (a celebration of their 1000th brew), in advance of Father’s Day 2015. A nice sequel to last year’s ‘Father’ Imperial Red Ale, at least marketing-wise. And cool, retro stitched patch affixed to the label, for whatever reason. This 650ml bottle pours a mostly clear, medium copper amber …

Always nice to see a brew from a venerable producer of an esoteric style, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/erdinger-pikantus/
Erdinger is a brewer of weissbier, or wheat beers, from the town of Erding, situated northeast of Munich.  As such, their bock, a staple style of springtime, is made with wheat in the malt bill, and is thus referred to as a Weizenbock, or ‘dark wheat beer of bock strength’, by all accounts. This 500ml …

Midnight trysts and the brews that are born of them, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/muskoka-moonlight-kettle-summer-saison/
Moonlight Kettle is Muskoka Brewery’s sort of test beer series, wherein their brewers ostensibly meet up late at night to conceive of new things for them to make.  The Summer Saison is the first release as a result of these apparent brainstorming sessions. This 750ml, caged and corked bottle, pours a slightly hazy, medium copper …

Some mountain-fresh, traditional seasonal brew, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/grizzly-paw-bruinator-doppelbock/
Grizzly Paw released this offering on tap at their Canmore brewpub, and in bottle format for Spring 2015, with the tagline: ‘Enjoyed by monks worldwide!’.  I do like their employment of the -ator naming structure for the style, and still keeping it in the grizzly bear theme.  Since Spring is almost over (tell that to …

Not all G-F brews are created equally, in the Beer Diaries Gluten-Free Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/greens-india-pale-ale/
Green’s is an English company, who have their beer made at DeProef Brewery in Belgium.  Here, we have another rare gluten-free IPA, made with millet, buckwheat, rice, and sorghum. This 500ml bottle pours a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with one very slim finger of wispy and bubbly beige head, which leaves a bit of isolated …

If you've got a son, then this brew's for you, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/anderson-valley-the-kimmie-the-yink-the-holy-gose/
Boonville, California’s Anderson Valley Brewing create this traditional Gose-style ale, with a name that comes from an awesome regional dialect take on the ‘holy trinity’ of the father, the son, and the holy ghost. This 12oz can pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, frothy, and somewhat creamy …

Daddy's Day is approaching, and we've got the cure for that, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/rogue-dads-little-helper-black-ipa/
Come mid-June, thoughts turn to honouring the Dads in our lives, and Rogue has just the beer for that – an American Black Ale, or Cascadian Dark Ale, if you prefer, just don’t refer to it as a ‘Black India PALE Ale’ – shame. This 22oz bottle pours a mostly clear, very dark rusty brown …

May (and Spring) are becoming a memory, but we still have the beer, in the Beer Diaries Spring Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/hofbrau-maibock/
Spring is not quite done with us yet this year, and we have another old-world Maibock to, um, celebrate the fact.  Hofbräu is one of the oldest breweries in Munich, and claim this as that city’s first of the style. Weird tent-raising spectacle depicted on the label. This 330ml bottle pours a crystal-clear, bright golden …

It's June, and summer appears to tentatively be here, so check out the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/canuck-empire-stargazer-chamomile-wheat/
Canuck Empire is a Lower Mainland contract operation, who have their products made at Dead Frog Brewery, and this is their seasonal wheat ale made with dried chamomile flowers, raspberry blossom, and honey – sounds nice and summery to me, but I do wonder what the Mill Street brewery thinks about the name, eh? This …

Cue the Beach Boys, and start dreamin' of Cali, in the Beer Diaries Summer Guide:

http://thebeerdiaries.tv/beer-review/camerons-california-sunshine/
While this offering is not a summer release, per se, the inspiration comes from the brewer’s impression that American Pale Ales originated in sunny California, which I’m not about to argue. This 341ml bottle pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with two skinny fingers of weakly foamy, and plainly bubbly dirty white head, which …
