CASK! Beer for the Cure Dinner: April 25th

After organizing a successful cask ale crawl through the streets of Toronto a couple weekends back, the CASK! group are gearing up for another cask event this Saturday (April 25th) as they are hosting a "Beer for the Cure" dinner at the Granite Brewery in support of the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada.

The group has put together a four course cask ale and food pairing, featuring newly released beers from Grand River and MacLean's Ales, along with fresh cask from the Granite, which will all be paired with a British inspired menu (see below).

Nicholas Pashley, a Core CASK! Member and author of Notes on a Beermat: Drinking and Why It's Necessary, will be the night's guest speaker, enlightening ticket buyers with his charming good natured wit. There will also be a silent auction and door prizes.

Tickets to the event are being sold for $65 per person and can be obtained by calling Caroline or Robert at (416) 462-3788.
