COLLINGWOOD, ON, June 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Side Launch Brewing Company Inc, a Collingwood, Ontario craft brewery has been named Canadian Brewery of The Year for 2016. "We are very excited and honoured to have won this award," said Chuck Galea, V.P. of Sales and Marketing. "We have had a huge year so far in regards to awards and we are really excited at the notion of us helping put Collingwood on the map as a craft beer destination."
Along with winning Canadian Brewery of The Year, Side Launch also earned three gold medals for their Side Launch Wheat, Side Launch Huronic Tripel, and Side Launch Germanic Bock. In April at the Ontario Brewing Awards, Side Launch took home four medals with Side Launch Huronic Tripel winning Gold and Side Launch Mountain Lager, Side Launch Dark Lager and the barrel-aged Side Launch Dunkelbach all winning bronze medals. In early May, the "Ontario Craft Beer Guide" was released by co-authors Robin Leblanc and Jordan St. John and not only did Side Launch beers receive very high ratings overall, but they named it "Top Brewery in Ontario."
"Winning all of this hardware and being recognized as the top brewery in our province has everything to do with the beer that our Head Brewer, Michael Hancock, makes. In addition, we have an amazing crew and are very proud of what we have accomplished," says Galea.
