BEERFEST! Friday, July 27th, 2012

I hope some of you made it out to Beerfest the weekend before last.

Toronto's Festival of Beer ran from July 26-29, and I had the opportunity to partake in the festivities on Friday July 27th, and Saturday July 28th.

...Friday

Salt 'N' Pepa. Yes, that happened.

Some might complain that they played an exceptional amount of covers, but the classics "What a Man", "Push It", and "Let's Talk About Sex" were just as good today as they were back in highschool... elementary school... who's counting?


 My first beer stop was Great Lakes Brewery.I had the Pale English Ale pictured below. It was darker than most English Ale's I've had in the past. It definitely had that bitter taste I'm used to, and I'd have it again, but only in certain occasions.

My friend had the Blonde with Jägermeister. Yup, you read that right. It was actually delicious. Barely any aroma, with what I would describe as a light and fluffy taste. It had a really clear and refreshing finish, and you could only slightly taste the Jag - just enough that you knew it was there, but not enough that you felt like you just took a shot of it. It was actually so good, that my friend (whom truth be told doesn't really drink beer) really liked it.



Somewhere between this and this Railway City I lost my notes. So.. onto Saturday in my next post.

If you can tell me a bit more about this Canada Southern Draft, please, DO! Else, what did you think about Salt 'n' Pepa?
