On the trail of some tasteful treats

Day-trippers can sample the best of Ontario's scenery, history and culture – with a beer chaser

Neustadt, Ont. – The warm weather is fading and frost is starting to lick at windows, flower tops and anywhere it can slip its hoary tongue. But that isn't such a bad thing.

Not when you consider the myriad day-trips available all through Ontario in the fall.

And especially not when you consider that many of these jaunts can include tours – and sampling – of the many area micro-breweries.

The Ontario Craft Brewers has put together information on a number of scenic routes in Toronto and around the province, organized to include local scenery, historic architecture, cultural activities such as studio tours, fall fairs and festivals, farmers' markets and pick-your-own produce farms.

At the actual breweries, visitors get to sample beers not available anywhere else and to speak with brewmasters who have dedicated their lives to the craft.
