Today we were in Port Perry and stopped at The Old Flame Brewing Company. Some might think damn this guy must drink a lot of beer, truth is, I do enjoy a few suds. I can pick these up at our local Beer Store or The Liquor Store. I can get a wide variety of the craft beers in my local stores, but these places look really cool. They have such old western vibe to them. A photographers dream, even an amateur one. As we approached I spotted this old rusted out truck, and thought here we go!
I smiled at Rebel Girl as we approached the front doors.
Old Flame doesn’t disappoint. I swear I stepped back in time.
When we walked in were greeted by Shawna, she was very friendly and told us feel free to take pictures. I tried 3 samplers. A Blonde, Blonde light, and a Brunette. My first picture was of the vats through a glass. But what caught my eye was outside. An old carriage
It turns out Old flames is in the former Ontario Carriage Works building. It was built in 1884. Apparently there was a fire there. The brewery salvaged what they could and named their beer Old Flame. What a pun, beers named red, blonde, brunette. Old Flames 🙂
I bought a few sampler glasses, a growler full of brunette, a 16 oz glass, and two Scary Mary IPA at a whopping 8%. I do enjoy this beer, and Shawna was a great hostess. She didn’t charge me for the samplers and offered us suggestions of where else we could go to take pictures. Honestly made us feel like we were at home in this amazing establishment. Make the trip to Port Perry and see what these folks have to offer. Here are some pics of what I took home.
