Now, you may not know this about me, but I like to drink beer while I watch hockey. And I try to match certain beers with certain NHL teams. So when the Vegas Golden Knights joined the league, I needed to find a new brew to slam down when somebody scores a natural hat trick in the second period to beat the Flames…and I think I found it, courtesy of Sweetgrass Brewing Co.
Not to be confused with the company that makes beer from artificially filtered marijuana, this local Ontario craft brewery is serving up ales, stouts and maple butter tart beer(!) from its spot on the Danforth. But their signature is the Golden Ale. Described as the “perfect food pairing beer,” it also pairs with shutout losses and bitter disappointment. Hey, if you’re too cool to drink Molson Canadian, this would be a pretty good replacement beer.
