#21. Beyond the Pale Pink Fuzz
We love that this pale-rose-coloured beer pairs perfectly with salads and sandwiches rather than nachos and wings. Its fruity, citrusy flavour is subtle enough to steer clear of mimosa territory. Instead, the use of grapefruit juice, zest, and pulp at different stages of production gives it a refreshing mix of sweetness and mild astringency. $7/32 oz. Beyond the Pale, 5 Hamilton Ave. N., 613-695-2991. ~ Shawna Wagman
