Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario – Recently, What’s Brewin’ spoke with the founders of OutSpoken Brewing in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Vaughan Alexander and Graham Atkinson want to help establish Northern Ontario as a premier craft beer destination. OutSpoken plans to open in the spring of 2015 at their Queen street location but in the meantime plan on having retail blitzes from time to time over the next couple months.
You can find their Rabbit Foots IPA at the Searchmont Resort and the OutSpoken Blonde Ale at both Wacky Wings locations in the Soo. Loplops has both beers available and will also have the odd session batch brew on tap.
What’s Brewin’ asked Graham for his thoughts on the recent announcement that The Beer Store plans to open up ownership to craft breweries and reduce some fees.
“My initial thoughts are excitement and then it wears away to skepticism. As of right now I’m not sure about the fine print and how the smaller details will affect the little guys.”, says Atkinson.
