Stephen Beaumont

Stephen Beaumont has been writing about beer for over 15 years and was Canada's first national beer columnist. As he describes it "I sit around, drink beer and get paid for it." How cool is that? Stephen cites Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver & Victoria as the great beer hubs of Canada. To experience great Canadian beer, Stephen recommends the Festival Mondial de la Biere, held each June in Montreal, or the Great Canadian Beer Festival held each September in Victoria, BC.

Stephen is also co-owner of the beerbistro in Toronto, a restaurant that specializes in beer and food pairings. The Guys and Stephen talk about favorite beers, beer in history, beer styles and age-worthy beers. The Guys share a favorite haunt in New York City called dba, where you can enjoy an amazing selection of beers and ales and also "Cask Conditioned Ale," a particular favorite. Did you know that Stage Left was once listed in Michael Jackson's beer guide as one of the best places on the East Coast of The United States to buy Belgian beer?
