Craft beer is forever changing and morphing with the times, and one of the newest trends in the game is functional beer. While this segment took hold in the US quite fast, it's been a slow uptake in Canada - until now. Enter Rally Beer Co. Co-Founders Alan Wood and Spencer Sgro kicked off their new venture mid-pandemic in 2020, and they're truly bringing something different and super unique to Ontario craft beer. We hung out for a great chat about the whole functional beer segment (a term they don't specifically use to describe their products), what separates their beers from other brews that utilize similar ingredients (salt, berries, adjuncts with high levels of minerals and electrolytes), where the inspiration came from, why they're targeting the specific market of athletes, and a ton more. We got stuck into their first two brews - Trail Blazer, their golden ale with salt and blackcurrants, and Extra Mile, their low-cal nano IPA. This was a fascinating one, get it in ya!
