Collectors of Canadian Brewery Advertising at Dominion on Queen - March 9th

If you're interested in old brewery advertising material, or care to catch a glimpse into Ontario's rich brewing history, you may want to head to Toronto's Dominion on Queen pub on Tuesday night.

From a post on Bar Towel:
The Collectors of Canadian Brewery Advertising present a slideshow of very rare Dominion Brewery photos and old Ontario beer labels. Constructed in the late-1880s, the buildings that housed the Dominion Brewery still stand today on Queen Street East in Toronto. These unique photos capture scenes of a thriving brewery at the turn of the twentieth century.

As well, a variety of mid-century beer labels from Ontario breweries owned by E.P. Taylor (including Brading's, Carling's, Kuntz, etc.) will be shown. 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday March 9, in the Corktown Lounge at the Dominion On Queen, 500 Queen Street East in Toronto. Free admission.


More information: Larry at 416-465-3386.

Interesting. I think I'll walk up the street for that. And bug Sean to install that damned cask engine he has.
