In this first of two Mill Street Brewery Ontario Brewer Podcasts, Mirella Amato of Beerology chats with Mill Street co-founder Steve Abrams as well as Andrew Yonick, who is the head brewer at the distillery district location, in Toronto. Steve shares the inside scoop on how the idea came about to open Mill Street Brewery and talks about the brewery’s early success introducing beers that stood out from what was available on the market at the time. Andrew tells us about when he joined the brewery and lists his favourite beers among the ones that he brews exclusively for the brewpub. The two Mill Street guys then focus in on the featured beers for this podcast: Mill Street Coffee Porter & Mill Street Frambozen and tell how the origin of one of these two beers can be traced back to the knights templar. They then share some of their favourite food pairings for these beers.
