Prescription Beer

I can’t really decide if it was the $500 parking ticket, or the discovery of my phone in a puddle under the keg washer yesterday, but I’m looking upon this Friday evening with a certain fondness. For all intents and purposes I will be living off the grid tonight, which I suppose is a somewhat romantic notion, one made infinitely more romantic by the addition of crisp cold beer. And perhaps I’ll also attempt to eat my feelings, tucking into any one of our delicious new dishes gracing the menu this month. 

I don’t feel equipped to offer up any official medical advice (I don’t exactly have a degree in medicine), but on more of a witch-doctor/shaman/pagan healer level, I want you to know that this holy brewed beverage we cook up in the Bellwoods tank farms — well, it can really turn a frown upside down. Don’t pour it on a scraped knee or anything, but a pint of our beer can work wonders on the affliction known as “Bad Day Syndrome” (reported to affect a large portion of the people in Toronto on an occasional basis). 

As always, we’ve included some great visual references that will keep you interested, ignite a fire in your heart, or make you drool embarrassingly for a while before you realize there’s a puddle in your lap. It’s sort of a ‘choose your own adventure’ kind of thing.

So come down to the brew pub or retail store this weekend to drink a pint, try one of our delicious new dishes, or grab a bottle to take home. And don’t forget that we are closed all day Monday (because we’ll be deep in the country burning stuff), reopening Tuesday at 5pm!
