FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 30, 2014

Ottawa-based Savvy Company just made it easier for Ontario’s beer enthusiasts to enjoy the growing number of craft beers being produced in Ontario. On January 30, 2014, Savvy Company has launched Ontario’s first craft-beer-of-the-month club that delivers craft beers to your doorstep. Known for its wine expertise and innovative wine events, Savvy Company has expanded its business and is working with craft breweries to create innovative ways to reach beer-thirsty Ontarians.

Savvy Hip Hops beer of the month club“The craft beer industry in Canada is exploding and breweries are winning national and international competitions,” says Savvy Company president & sommelier Debbie Trenholm. “We run a very successful Savvy Selections wine of the month club and many of those subscribers, as well as clients, have asked for a similar club for beer. We seize every opportunity to wave the Canadian flag, so launching Savvy Hip Hops was natural.”

Every month Savvy Hip Hops subscribers will receive the Savvy Hip Hops Taste Case delivered directly from the brewery to their home or office on the Friday closest to the 24th (as in 2-4) of the month.  The Taste Case will be an assortment of bottles, cans & growlers of beers on tap and in tank at the featured brewery. The beers will be selected by a team of beer industry bloggers, media & craft beer enthusiasts who are part of the ‘Savvy Brew Crew’.  In collaboration with the featured brewmaster, together they will create a compilation of beers that are only available at the brewery or rarely found at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) and The Beer Store.

To further the enjoyment of the beers in the Savvy Hip Hops Taste Case, subscribers will receive the monthly ‘Beer Backstory’, a mini-magazine including a relaxed interview with the brewmaster and brewery owners, trivia about the featured beers, the brewery’s staff favorite foods to enjoy with the selected beers and recipes with the beers as the ingredients or to serve with a pint.
