June is Bike Month, and for the 4th year in a row, we're celebrating the best way we know how...with BEER!

We're launching the Ides of June at 6pm sharp on Friday, June 14th here at the brewery, and we have some very special guests helping us this month - Mike Layton and Olivia Chow will be on-hand to talk about Jack’s cycling legacy and help launch the new beer.

The launch will also feature a Live Auction - Mike Layton and Olivia Chow have donated Jack Layton’s bicycle, and it will be on the auction block at 6:30pm. Jack’s vintage bike will be on display in our tap room as of early June in case you want to swing by and check it out ahead of time!

A portion of the sale of each beer sold, plus all proceeds from the auction will go to Cycle Toronto, who will be on hand that night with a pop up info booth - they'll have special offers and the inside scoop on all things Bike Month.

We'll be handing out free glasses of the new beer, and we've got some amazing (and complimentary) food to go alongside - this month, cycling lovers/local heroes LOVE CHIX are sending their legendary Fried Chicken, along with some other snacks too! (Vegetarian options included!) If you've been to a launch before, you know - the food goes fast, so be here at 6 if you want in on the action!

This is a free event, and all are welcome!
