(Toronto, ON) Steam Whistle Brewing, craft brewers of the Gold Medal Pilsner at this year’s Canadian Brewing Awards, are stocking shelves for the coming season with vintage-inspired holiday gift packs.
Craft beer has become the new favourite of foodies interested in buying all-natural beverages from upstanding local producers. In the LCBO’s 2011-12 annual report, Ontario craft beers led all product segments with almost 45% growth. “The sales performance of Ontario craft beers are all the more impressive given they are achieving growth on top of previous strong sales growth,” states LCBO President & CEO, Bob Peter.
Gift-giving, holiday parties and festive menus all call for craft beer and Steam Whistle’s seasonal packs are wrapped and ready for the holidays including festive graphics and a box-top gift tag. The holiday 6-pack ($13.25) and holiday 12-pack ($24.65) are now in-store at Ontario LCBO and Beer stores.
“Good beer is a meant to be shared with good food and good friends”, says Steam Whistle Brewmaster Marek Mikunda, “and the holiday season provides many opportunities for such celebration”.
