Beer/Cider Of The Month

Northbound Lager

4.4%, 13 IBU, Side Launch Brewing

Northbound, a North American craft lager is born where the blue skies meet the clear waters of Georgian Bay. Using the highest quality ingredients, this beer is a light-bodied, well-balanced North American lager. It is uncomplicated, easy drinking and has a refined, refreshing finish.

 

Classic Perry Cider

6.7%, Sunnybrook Farm

A Gold Medal Winner at 2016 Ontario Cider Awards, this cider is crafted from a blend of freshly pressed Ontario Bartlett and Bosc pears. Smooth and subtly complex, it is medium-bodied with tropical notes of guava and a lengthy vanilla finish.

 

A Buck-A-Beer For The Better: The Good Tap

Blood Orange Saison

5.5% 20 IBU, Henderson Brewery

The Good Tap is a monthly rotating tap feature curated by the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies. This month, the Ladies and Henderson Brewing bring us Blood Orange Saison, a fruit forward and effervescent brew, with a burst of bright citrus and subtle notes of banana and spice. This beer finishes tart and dry, encouraging another sip.

Donations of $1 for every pint and $0.50 from every half pint will go directly to the Ladies charity of choice, the Canadian Women’s Foundation.

George's Beer Facts

Draught (US, Draft)

The Old English word “draught” meant "to pull,” like the draught horses that used to deliver beer kegs back in the day. Before pressurized carbon dioxide and nitrogen were widely used to push beer from the kegs through the lines to the tap, the beer had to be “pulled” with a beer engine (a hand operated piston). Hence the term draught.

Power Pop Goes The Weasel III

Sunday April 14, 5:00 PM, Pay What You Can

Featuring: James Clark Institute, Bee Sting Ghost Roll into The Ocean, Clockwise 

Growing up, Toronto-based musician James Clark wanted to be both John Lennon and Ringo Starr.  As a musician, James draws inspiration from such artists as Elvis Costello, Ray Davies, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Under the guise of ‘The James Clark Institute’ James is a melodic pop/rock singer and songwriter, as well as a talented rock and roll drummer. 

With a subtle nod to the songwriting books and hooks of past and present pop-rock bands, Clockwise proliferates the traditional pop song by adding their unique brand of power-pop. Clockwise is at once modern, reminiscent and timeless.

Felix's Belt with Big Name Actors

Friday April 19, 9:00 PM, Suggested Contribution $10

Reuniting for the first time in over a year, Big Name Actors bridge the gap between the early nineties scenes of Seattle and Halifax. They are catchy and upbeat, but with an undeniable dark side. Performing in a unique alt-rock/power-pop sphere, Big Name Actors will once again please Toronto audiences with their dynamically charged songs.
