Liberty Village Brewing Company to launch first beers next spring

Ontario may still be a decade or so behind the craft brewing revolution that’s been sweeping the U.S. for years now, but recently there are new little operations popping up seemingly everywhere. The most recent: Liberty Village Brewing Company. In a Q&A with the excellently named new blog Mom and Hops, the owners say they hope to engage the Liberty Village community in all parts of their business, from planning what types of beer to brew to marketing. If all goes according to schedule, the fledgling operation should be ready for a first tasting sometime this fall, with proper runs of two or three styles (including an IPA and an APA, both citra-hopped) shipped to nearby restaurants and bars in the spring of 2013.
