After spending a week in Dryden in the pursuit of chanterelles I found myself with an extra hour in Thunder Bay before my flight home to the “six” [sorry kids – I know it’s embarrassing when dad works for street cred – I promise it will get worse not better].
Thankfully my cousin from TBay hasn’t gotten a new cell phone since I last texted her in 2011 so I had access to some intel. She recommended The Sleeping Giant Brewery. So before my flight I got a flight [there”s no poetry quite like word poetry].
I even got a little tour. Big tanks, medium tanks, and tiny tanks for experimenting with. My tour guide – more accurately the closest employee I nabbbed for questioning – had a Saskatoon berry sour on the go – her first nano brew in the cute R2-D2 size tanks.
Hey Sleeping Giant people – I loved all your beer – especially the Spruce tip Ale – and I loved your brewery.
