Summer in the Loire Valley, June 30
Celebrate summer in the Loire Valley on June 3 at a wine tasting event sponsored by Doug Reichel Wine Marketing, Co-op Wine Spirits Beer, and Boffin’s. The five French-inspired food stations will be accompanied by wines from Domaine Joseph Mellot.

The rhubarb pinwheel croissants are delicious!

The Scoop
The Scoop in Riversdale is a summer employment program for inner-city youth. They’re now offering sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan popsicles.

Temperance Brewing
Temperance Brewing Co-operative will be brewing their first beer at Paddock Wood Brewing Co. Co-op members can vote on their choice of beer.

Battle Brewing
Female brewmakers are taking aim at the industry’s sexism (i.e. a beer labelled Legspreader).

“If beermakers want a lesson on women’s role in beer, says Peyton, they should look to history. “Women were the original brewers of beer … and in the creation myths of many cultures, beer was given to humans by females.”

Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post articles about food that is good, clean and fair; travel; and books. You may also enjoy EcoFriendly Sask profiling Saskatchewan environmental initiatives and events.
