It’s a bit early to call this a good pub review but I am cautiously optimistic.
The Charcoal Group http://www.charcoalgroup.ca
runs a good group of places here in KW...the only problem is, their beers suck. I have had discussions with them and they don’t seem to get it. They have Tankhouse but that’s as far as they wander (are allowed?) off the Molsons path.
Now this. Beertown Public House.
They are going to be setting up in the Shops Uptown Waterloo (formerly Waterloo Town Square) where Shoppers is right now (Shoppers is expanding and moving across the hall. Where the Scotiabank was)
Streetview showing the square they overlook. Its a skating rink in the winter http://goo.gl/9Fcwb
They have opened themselves up on facebook and even asked for beer suggestions.
I am pleased to see there are a significant number of folks asking for FMs beer, specifically Smashbomb. Beertown themselves even posted a pic of some FM and Muskoka beers they were tasting.
The one sad note is a response from Beertown in response to a request for Rolling Rock :Beertown said” A delicious beer...draft or bottle?”
I encourage all lovers of good beer (not just in KW) to contact these guys and encourage them to make this a real beer destination in Waterloo!!!
jessem, jimmay, carguy, kish84, and the rest of you, you know what to do!
The fact that it is less than 500 m from my house doesn't hurt either!!!
PS Matt7215/Rob: If these guys try to open something called Beertown in Waterloo region without you guys - one of the premier craft brewers in this country! then
