We are pleased to announce our December Project X plans! The Ugly Sweater Edition!

Join the Great Lakes Brewery crew for an epic night to celebrate the festive season on Thursday December 13th at The Monarch Tavern for our Ugly Christmas Sweater party! That’s right, dust off that sweater your Aunt gave you that one Christmas, or raid your Grandmothers closet and come decked out in your ugliest Christmas sweater/vest to win prizes and walk the runway! Yeah, runway. There will be a panel of judges picking out the best….errr, worst dressed person.

Here’s the deal – it’s $15 at the door, with $5 of that donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Hogtown Smoke will be on-site offering up pulled pork poutine!!

Stay tuned for more information about which beers we’ll be offering up for the event! But you can be sure to find our seasonal Winter Ale, and our latest Tank10 series beer – Karma Citra IPA.

Fool’s Day Fiasco – Project X

March 30th, 2010 Posted by Beer Events No Comment yet

GTA beer lovers will know that on the 2nd Thursday of every month, Great Lakes Brewery creates a special cask or two and invites people to the brewery to help them drink it dry. On April’s scheduled date half of the brewery will be whooping it up at the Craft Brewer’s Conference so they’ve decided to move the next Project X to April Fool’s Day (I kid you not), and furthermore, they’ll be offering four cask ales! Here’s some more info straight from the Great Lakes blog:

“Join us on Thursday, April 1 (special date) from 6:30 on as we tap 4, count em 4, cask ales. From the mad minds of Great Lakes staff, we bring you the following beers:

Miami Weisse – 4.5%, 50 BU
Wimpy Impy Stout – 6.5%, 80 BU
My Bitterer Wife Double IPA – 8%, 90BU
Triple Trouble Barleywine – 9%, 70BU (and aged for 6 months!)

And what would April Fool’s Day be without fun and games? We’ll have some fun stuff to do, but you’ll have to show up to find out just what we have in store…

Tash and the gang at Bryden’s will be bringing the eats, and if the weather holds, we might have the BBQ up and running.

As usual, give us a shout ahead of time, or show up at the door. And don’t plan on driving – take the train, TTC, phone a friend, a cab, whatever, just don’t drive!”
