10 new beers to try this spring in Toronto
While it may not feel like spring yet in Toronto that shouldn't stop you from grabbing a pint, can, bottle or growler of craft beer. Many of our city's breweries and brewpubs are releasing delicious-sounding offerings this season, so you better get sipping soon.
Here are 10 new beers for you to try this spring in Toronto.
Ace Hill Pilsner, 4.9%
Ace Hill Beer Company Inc. launched earlier this year with a pilsner and a mission to give back 1 per cent of its sales to clean water-related causes. You can find its cleanly designed cans at a slew of local spots, including 416 Snack Bar, Bar Raval and the Danforth Music Hall.
Wrigley Oat Pale Ale, 5.5%
Toronto's baseball-themed Left Field Brewery comes up with new beers each season. Its latest, the Wrigley Oat Pale Ale, is named after the famous Chicago stadium and its adorable canine mascot.
Maple Trunk, 5.5%
Spring is maple syrup season in Canada, so what better way to celebrate than with Junction Craft Brewing's new maple amber ale? This beer features plenty of real maple syrup from Nogo Farms in Restoule, Ontario so head to the Junction to try it out.
Rhizome - Mango/Amarillo, 7%
Folly Brewpub debuted its latest Rhizome series beer at the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies' festival. Brewer Chris Conway says this farmhouse ale is made with amarillo hops as well as sweet mango puree. It'll start appearing on tap at Folly in mid-April.
Buck 10, 7.8%
By the beginning of May, Landsdowne Brewery will start serving up Buck 10. Deaglan Kernohan-Wallingford describes it having bread or biscuit-like malt flavours, a citrusy and pine-like hoppy aroma and a solid bitterness for balance. He says it's like big IPA or a double IPA meets an American amber ale.
West Coast Style IPA, 6.6%
Toronto's Mill Street Brewery, which is now under the Labatt banner, has released a hoppy new IPA. It's available now at the Mill Street Brew Pub, Bier Markt and the LCBO.
Hop Cone Syndrome, 8.5%

Jelly King, 5.3%
Grab a glass of Jelly King on the patio of this Ossington brewpub. The dry-hopped sour is currently available on tap and should appear in the bottle shop soon.
Food Truck Beer, 4.2%
