3 Ontario craft beers that we must try? 

That is the hardest question to answer, there is a lot of great breweries in Ontario right now. If I mention 3 beers and I run into someone who brewed a great beer that I didn't include I might not be able to look them in the eye.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a brewery?

Get ready to work your ass off.
