While I do my best to steer readers in the right direction, Ontario beer drinkers owe a debt of gratitude to Jordan St. John and Robin LeBlanc. * Toronto Star * A well-written, easy to read guide that every beer lover in or visiting Ontario should pick up. * Quench Magazine * A brewcationer's bible...essential to all craft beer fans. * London Free Press * With this level of detail I can transpose my palate to their recommendations and still trust their recommendations. Trust. That's it. I can trust a book like this. So can you. * A Good Beer Blog * Anyone who drinks beer in Ontario owes LeBlanc and St. John a pint for completing the arduous (no, really) job of cataloguing and rating many hundreds of brands, resulting in a thorough, authoritative and fascinating list. * National Post * I started ticking off the brews that I've tried, and I've learned that I have a lot of beer to discover. * Beer O'Clock * A hugely useful new intro to the beautiful madness that is the current scene. * NOW Magazine * This new and improved volume will act as a guide to myriad beer nerds' self-led beer road trips, will be become as dog-eared and worn as Volume One did on the desk of any number of unnamed beer writers who used it as a reference, and will act as an invaluable introduction to any beer drinker looking to have his or her horizons expanded by the plethora of great beer being brewed in Ontario. * Ben's Beer Blog *
