CBC, “Our Toronto”, August 12, 2017
Five years ago I gave up alcohol due to a medical condition. But I missed my beer. I missed the taste of beer and discovering new beers, especially new craft beers. But more than that, I found that I missed the social connection that comes from sharing a drink with a colleague after a hard days work, cracking a beer with the guys after hockey, and joining in to celebrate special occasions with family and friends.
So a friend suggested that I try non-alcoholic beer. The problem is most of the non-alcoholic beer I tried tasted awful and there really was almost nothing in terms of variety. Unfortunately the long-standing stigma surrounding non-alcoholic beer has been well deserved.
That is until now!
I launched Partake Brewing to bring all the things that make craft beer great to non-alcoholic beer drinkers including taste, variety, authenticity, creativity, and passion. Non-alcoholic beer drinkers want to Partake in the craft beer journey with everyone else. Why? Because we’re beer lovers too.
Lorsque j’ai appris que j’avais la maladie de Crohn, j’ai dû arrêter de boire de l’alcool. Cependant, comme mon amour pour les bières artisanales n’était pas près de s’éteindre, j’ai décidé de fonder Partake Brewing et de créer des bières artisanales sans alcool, tout aussi variées, savoureuses et goûteuses que celles qui ont éveillé ma passion. Santé!
