With ten beers on tap, including the ever-popular Jam (a thick, sour beer bursting with a medley of berries), this neighbourhood newcomer offers a beer lineup that promises to keep customers wanting more.
The bar, which opened its doors in Rosalie Village in June 2023, also features a selection of pale ales, IPAs, and a delightful collaboration with Japan’s Black Tide brewery.
