News & Brews

If it feels like it has been a while since one of these posts, it’s because it has been. Not only have I been backlogged with posts, it has been a busy week with two concerts, getting ready for a new job and other life stuff. So let the (long) recap begin:

  • Lots of new beers have been popping up at the LCBO, including a trio from Mill Street: the Lemon Tea (LCBO# 186783), the Schleimhammer Roggenbier (LCBO # 186809) and Betelguese (LCBO# 186817). Most of the summer release is out and tasting good.
  • This may not be news to everyone, but the Leslieville Cheese Market has beer and cheese tasting nights at both east and west locations. I signed up for one on June 30th with Sam Corbiel of Mill Street and am super excited.
  • The next CASK! Social will be on June 19th at the Rhino. For once I’m not working, but will be at the baseball game.
  • The annual Hart House Craft Beer Festival is happening on Thursday July 29th. $35/$25 (students) gets you BBQ nibbles and eight beer samples, plus there will be live music.
