Kingston First Food Truck Festival

I recently wrote a review of Kingston's first Food Truck Festival for the Kingston Lobby!

Two Nuts Food Truck from Kingston Ontario
Two Nuts in a Food Truck is a new addition to Kingston. They're located across from the MOH on Wellington. Incidentally it's the closest truck to my office so I'll be frequenting it often.

Two Nuts mango fish taco - very tasty mango and a huge serving size!

Crosswind Pale Ale 

Daniel Makinnon serving the crowds. 
The Mackinnon brothers started up their brewery on their family farm in Bath Ontario. Bath is just outside of Kingston. The beer has a crisp caramel flavour which reminds me of Innis and Gunn. Mackinnon is my new favourite beer - I was seriously impressed. Mackinnon is now being featured at the Red House, The Brooklyn and Dianne's Fishbar.

Whitewater Brewery from Ottawa 
Whitewater Brewery was started by a couple whitewater paddlers so, of course, I instantly liked them. They brought an intense espresso IPA which tasted great. I can't drink much more than a sip of a hoppy IPA without getting a headache though so I opted for the blonde which was nice and refreshing.

The view from the South lawn at Fort Henry was fantastic!

Heading home.

Spoiler Alert: I'm going to be writing more articles on Fort Henry in the next few weeks!
