I love finding local places that are unique, offer a great product, and owned by friendly people. I think supporting local businesses and your local economy is important. The “Living Local” series is inspired by this affection for local places and local products. The series will highlight some of my favourite haunts, tasty eats, and miscellaneous local goodness.
If you hadn’t already guessed Andrew and I are beer drinkers. We recently sampled two beers from OutSpoken Brewing a microbrewery that recently opened in Sault Ste Marie. Outspoken currently has limited storefront hours and sells by the growler and howler. Your first growler is $20 and refills are $12-13. We picked up two growlers from OutSpoken, one of Anvil Red Ale and one of Rabbit’s Foot IPA.
Surprisingly I enjoyed the Anvil Red Ale more than the IPA. It was subtle, smooth drinking, and a lovely amber colour. Andrew and I are looking forward to trying more selections from Outspoken — especially since they recently introduced expanded hours.
