I haven't been there myself, but I got the following email from Jed Corbiel, co-owner of the Griffin Gastropub
up in Bracebridge, and it sounds like a great place:
"We are a bar that serves strictly Ontario made craft beer. Presently we carry 45 different beers from across Ontario. No Molson, No Labatt - only micros. I am trying to get into the beer world more and more as we progress at the bar.
For example, every month, my partner Curt and I head off on the road to tour a different brewery and meet with the brewmaster to discuss their beer. Then we feature said brewery at our bar for a month, our "brewery of the month" and we sell all of the bottles offered by the brewery and at least 2 taps. We then have a "Brewmaster's Dinner" where we invite the brewmaster to Bracebridge and host a 4 course gourmet dinner with every course paired with one of their beers. Our chef works with the brewmaster all month and does a weekly tasting with our staff for pairing ideas. It always sells out and is always a lot of fun."
Anyone been there?
