Since Matt and Steve’s launched their first RTD Caesar in spring of 2020 – we are thrilled to be announcing the launch of another, fiery version in Ontario! Their Hot and Spicy ready-to-drink (RTD) Caesar in Ontario LCBO’s, just in time for National Caesar Day on May 20th!

The RTD alcoholic beverage industry has exploded in popularity as people are drinking at home or outdoor areas, rather than at restaurants and bars. And we all know that Caesars are the absolute go-to for a perfect Canadian Summer Day – it’s the perfect sitting-on-the-dock drink.

With years of experience as experts in pickled veggies (like the Extreme Bean!) most famously used as a Caesar garnish across the country, the Matt & Steve’s Original Caesar (topped with Caesar Rimmer, an Extreme Bean or Asaragoos) is the perfect way to bring this beloved Canadian staple to the cottage on National Caesar Day!


You can also pair it with some fabulously picked recipes created for those who have some seriously savoury taste buds!

New beer from Guinness

Guinness is back with another nitrogenated creation, which is already a fan-favorite: Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer. As the brewers of the world’s most popular nitro stout, Guinness is now combining everything you love about coffee and Guinness into one beer. Sweet-smelling with a distinct rich coffee aroma, Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is the perfect balance of bitter and sweet with a roast coffee flavor. Brewed using cold brew coffee extract and coffee flavors, it has a rich, smooth and creamy palate with hints of espresso, chocolate and caramel.

“Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is a welcome addition to the Guinness family, and the response so far has been incredible,” said Nikhil Shah, Guinness Brand Director. “Now that it’s officially iced coffee season, we’re excited to give consumers a coffee-forward beer to enjoy during their spring and summertime occasions.”

Guinness has consistently proven that no one does nitro beer better. Pioneered in 1959 as the first nitrogenated beer, the legendary Guinness Draught instantly became the best-selling Guinness beer worldwide. At 4% ABV, Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is best enjoyed straight from the can or poured into a clean glass to fully activate the widget inside the can. The widget infuses nitrogen into the beer upon opening and re-creates the signature surge and settle effect you get from a Guinness Draught on tap or in a can.

Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is a permanent addition to the Guinness portfolio and began appearing on U.S. shelves in March, with expansion now happening nationwide. Each pack contains four 14.9 fl. oz. cans, with a suggested retail price of $9.99. While it is expected to slowly start rolling out to other countries over the next 12-18 months, the U.S. is now the first market to be able to enjoy this new offering.
