J BARB Pilsner
Amateur historians, curious locals and ghost hunters seek out the ruins of the Barber Paper Mill on the banks of the Credit River in Georgetown, Ontario.
Originally established in 1823, this designated heritage site had its heyday in the late 19th century as a producer of book paper, posters and newspaper.
We pay tribute to owner John Barber – who upgraded the mill to use hydroelectric power in the late 1880s, believed to be the first mill of its kind in Canada.
Rumour has it J. Barb still haunts the property -which now sits abandoned, overgrown and covered in graffiti.
Our J Barb Pilsner is a refreshing and crisp pale lager – medium bodied with a snappy and bitter finish.
Made with a light grain and spicy Saaz hops, the aroma is mild, earthy, herbal and spicy.
Thirst-quenching and palate-cleansing.
