Move over vino, there’s another big gig in town! Ultra premium craft beers coming out of Europe are as unique and as flavourful as any Chardonnay or Cabernet, and they too embrace the role of partner when it comes to the pairing of food and drink. Not just any old beer will do, liken a lager to a white wine and an ale to red. And not only that.... says Beer Knight Guy McClelland, each premium craft beer has a story, a history, some dating back over ten thousand years!
This week on The Wine Ladies TV we welcome Guy McClelland, President of MPI, one of only four Canadians to be enthroned into the knighthood by the Confederation of Belgium Brewers, thus bearing the title of the Beer Knight. Guy will introduce us to an array of eight wonderful and unique European beers. We’lll learn the differences bewteen lagers and ales, the importance of the right glass and why it is key to always use a glass... how to avoid that “bloated” feeling, why these pure natural beers are healthy and much more!

Indeed because we are The Wine Ladies it doesn't mean we can't deviate from the grape every once in awhile and "drink outside the box" and venture into another territory all together.Read more: Great Lakes Brewery, Toronto's oldest craft brewery visits The Wine Ladies at CP 24 Radio 1050
