Fynn's of Temple Bar to Host Beer Dinner

The independently owned and operated Fynns of Temple Bar on King Street West has announced plans to host a four course beer dinner on Monday April 27th starting at 6:30pm.

"Once again, we are happy to have Food Network Canada's very own Thirsty Traveler, Kevin Brauch back at Fynn's for our second beer tasting event," stated Robin Wynne, manager of Fynns.

"The feedback and response from the first one was so overwhelming, that we had to get Kevin back to host another night! Again, the beer tasting dinner will be 4 courses of beer, with 4 courses of food, and possibly a fifth toast beer on top of that, for $50.00 per person! We sold out last time at 100 people, so get your tickets fast by reserving your name and table for the night."

I contacted Wynne to get a list of the beers that they will be featuring; however, he confirmed that he and Brauch usually make the decision two weeks prior to the dinner. "We take a look at our vintages list, talk to the Ontario Craft Brewers (OCB) about any new unique products on the market, and we do try to find at least one Bavarian produced beer that is in limited numbers."

The last beer tasting held at Fynn's included a couple five beauties, plus an extra toasting beer - Creemore UrBock, Dogfish Head 60 min IPA, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, Innes and Gunn, Mill Street Tankhouse and for the toast, Black Katt Oyster Stout.
